First, two KNKX moms share their experiences in the neonatal intensive care unit after the birth of their children. Then, a trip to a NICU, where we learn how to write lullabies. Also, we head to a business that bills itself as "everyone's barbershop." Next, a story of a young attorney who wanted to represent Cuban detainees in 1980, only to realize she may have been out of her element. We learn about a locally made film featuring a retired police officer from Tamil Nadu, who vacations in Seattle to spend time with his son as people start disappearing. Finally, we meet a doctor who started a nonprofit to spread hospice and palliative care around the world, beginning in Rwanda.
Sound Effect showcases stories inspired by the place we live. The show is hosted by KNKX's Gabriel Spitzer.
