We start with a man translating traditional blues into Yiddish. Next, we join "the Jane Goodall of the whales," as she eavesdrops on orcas. Then, an effort is made to rethink how an endangered native language should look on the page. Finally, a rabbi uses modern music to help save a language from extinction.
Sound Effect showcases stories inspired by the place we live. The show is hosted by KNKX's Gabriel Spitzer. You can hear the broadcast version of the show below, which also contains a story of a musician with autism who usee music as a language.
