This week, Sound Effect looks back and reflects on storytelling from 2018. The staff shares their favorite stories from the year.
We hear from a couple who moved their church from Capitol Hill to Skyway, only to be joined by a long string of churches priced out of Seattle. We hear a conversation between two birding enthusiasts about finding a place for themselves as black women from big cities among nature-lovers.
Then, we meet a man who recorded the first known gay country album, and learn how his father encouraged him. Next, we talk to a reporter and a retired judge about an article that was written about the judge’s ruling releasing a sex offender. Finally, we hear about what it is like to go hiking as a fat girl.
Sound Effect showcases stories inspired by the place we live. The show is hosted by KNKX's Gabriel Spitzer.
