This week on Sound Effect, we share stories of imperfect crimes. We start by talking to 88.5’s Nick Morrison, who was once hired to smuggle pot. We then meet a man who was a lifelong prankster, until one prank recalibrated his moral compass. Next, a story of an unlikely group of men who robbed a bank, how it went wrong, and some odd takeaways from it. Then, a police officer goes into a prison, and asks the prisoners to think about the one thing they could have done different to have avoided ending up in jail. We’ll also meet a cyber security expert who was hired by the FBI to catch a pair of international hackers. The show wraps up with a story that involves murder and butter.
"Sound Effect" is your weekly tour of ideas, inspired by the place we live. The show is hosted by KPLU's Gabriel Spitzer.
