Watch Your Language: Sound Effect, Episode 173

Jun 20, 2020

This show originally aired on March 30, 2019.

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. Also, a story of a musician with autism who uses music as a language. 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
