Meet a mother and a daughter working through how blood and language have shaped their relationship.
Simone Alicea is a reporter and editor here at KNKX. Her mom Veronica Alicea-Galvan is a King County Superior Court judge. They came together in a Storycorps booth in Chicago to talk about something specific: the bilingual court that Judge Alicea-Galvan used to run in Des Moines, Washington.
But the conversation strayed pretty quickly into this intimate space, where both women learned things about the other they hadn’t known before.
In this midweek installment of the Sound Effect podcast, Simone shares the conversation with us, and talks with host Gabriel Spitzer about what it was like to listen back to it.
Note: This is part of an experiment with Sound Effect’s podcast: We will feed a condensed version of the full show on Saturdays, withholding an especially memorable story. Then we’ll hear that segment, and some of the story behind the story, in a new weekly podcast installment that will be in your feed on Wednesdays. You can still always catch the full, broadcast-style version of the show on the web site (at the bottom of the page).
We’d love to hear what you think of the new podcast format -- give your feedback in the comments below, or email SoundEffect@knkx.org.
