This week on Sound Effect, we share stories of imperfect crimes. We start by talking to 88.5’s Nick Morrison, who was once hired to smuggle pot. We then meet a man who was a lifelong prankster, until one prank recalibrated his moral compass. Next, a story of an unlikely group of men who robbed a bank, how it went wrong, and some odd takeaways from it. Then, a police officer goes into a prison, and asks the prisoners to think about the one thing they could have done different to have avoided ending up in jail. The show wraps up with a story that involves murder and butter.
"Sound Effect" is your weekly tour of ideas, inspired by the place we live. The show is hosted by 88.5's Gabriel Spitzer. The full broadcast version of this week's show, available below, also includes a conversation with a cyber security expert who was hired by the FBI to catch a pair of international hackers.
