The Last Straw: Sound Effect, Episode 143

May 18, 2019

This show originally aired on April 28, 2018. 

This week, stories of breaking points, realizations, and bitter ends. We meet one man who is taking out his disappointment with the departure of Seattle's basketball team in an unusual way. We hear from a homeowner whose Wallingford backyard abuts a homeless encampment, as well as from the campers who are sick of being moved around. A local writer remembers the moment he could no longer stand being "the fat kid" in class. We get a story about the man Sasquatch was looking at in that famous photo. What happens when you've reached your breaking point, but the hoarder you live with has not. And a scuba diver in Hawaii confronts a nuclear doomsday

"Sound Effect" is your weekly tour of ideas, inspired by the place we live. The show is hosted by 88.5's Gabriel Spitzer.
