2018 Favorites: Sound Effect, episode 164

Dec 29, 2018

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
