Past Episodes

  • The Sound of Tomorrow--Episode 530: Elegapolis Aired: Wednesday, November 22, 2023

    Guuurl.... It's a new Sound of Tomorrow and, in a headline that smells a little like James Madison's crystal flute, we're talking about the uproar and outrage about the recent reclassification of Roman emperor.. empress? Elagabalus. And also the fabulous utopia Elegapolis, werk! More nuanced and interesting is moving onto a discussion of Louisa May Alcott and her many times over stated male identity. Heather learned a lot today, that's for sure! Closing it out with a bit on more scams to watch out for and into the night we go! 

  • The Sound of Tomorrow--Episode 529: Punching Teens Aired: Wednesday, November 15, 2023

    It's a new Sound of Tomorrow but Heather has the same old cramps. Or, different? Worse? Or the worse ones are back? Perimenopause is something else, y'all. We'll check with Suzanne Sommers and get back to you. Otherwise, we're mostly talking scams and punching teens with a little AI throw in to spice things up. The Beatles are overrated! Come at us. We're in fighting shape from punching all those teens. 

  • The Sound of Tomorrow--Episode 528: Strokey Aired: Wednesday, November 8, 2023

    We did it!! With your support, we achieved the WAYO 2024 Fundraiser goal! But there' s still time to donate! is the place to be!

    In the exciting episode of the Sound of Tomorrow, we're accidentally destroying the studio, we're talking about film fests and regionalisms (and made up vocabulary) and tai chi! Plus a super secret hidden little moon. Aw.

  • The Sound of Tomorrow--Episode 527: Hand Fruit Aired: Wednesday, November 1, 2023

    Space Cadets, it's time! Open up those wallets and give generously (according to your means) to the WAYO 2024 Fundraiser!! Get some swag and feel great about yourself by supporting WAYO and The Sound of Tomorrow for another year!! In this exciting episode, of course we're talking about the fundraiser! Also, did you know that the WAYO studio is haunted? We found out today. Hm. Even scarier, Ross refuses to set up a movie date wit Heather. Whyyyy? And, while you're donating so generously, think about buying some cake mix for your local food pantry.

  • The Sound of Tomorrow--Episode 526: Costume Party Aired: Wednesday, October 25, 2023

    Ah, Space Cadets, spooky season is upon us and, even though we have no Terrortacular for you this year, we're still in the Halloween mood! We're talking trick or treat niceness, costumes, as in, this is an actual message Heather received before we went on air, "Do you want to go out in costume this weekend or just dress normally and have everyone think we're going as vampires?," and Ross has a list of spookily queer movies that are fun for the whole family and maybe even Heather!

    Don't forget to catch Heather on Halloween Night:

  • The Sound of Tomorrow--Episode 525: Fireballs Aired: Wednesday, October 18, 2023

    Wow, yeah, no, Heather was on the struggle bus with the buttons today. No theme for you! Which... that's fine. You've heard it before probably. We're talking the horrific state of politics and current events for most of the show but we bring it up at the end with meteorite fun and a little Netflix "What are Ross and Heather watching" segment. Spoiler: we're watching the same show!

  • The Sound of Tomorrow--Episode 524: Europa Aired: Wednesday, October 11, 2023

    Ah, we have fun, don't we. On this exciting episode, we're talking flu-sters and boosters, Joe Biden's bro (CW: toilet seat talk), overfishing on Europa and is the water delicious to drink or delicious to sit it, is dog pee delicious to drink or delicious to sit it, and Heather's cat woes. Good times for all on today's new Sound of Tomorrow. 

  • The Sound of Tomorrow--Episode 523: Ablaze, Baby Aired: Wednesday, October 4, 2023

    Y'all. I can't go back to reddit. I did Google "'trees of death' reddit" and came up with literal, apparently, trees of death, but nothing that makes sense. Ross suggested after the show that the trees of death that one person was going to set ablaze were probably cell towers and I think he's right. So that's what we're doing, babies. On this week's sound of tomorrow, we have follow up on the government safety album including feedback from exactly one child!  We have more conspiracy theories than you can shake a stick at! And we have Jimmy Carter. What more could you want?

  • The Sound of Tomorrow--Episode 522: We're Safety Now Haven't We Aired: Wednesday, September 27, 2023

    The most exciting part of this episode is that Ross is launching a new podcast!! This is so exciting!

We're also talking Of Montreal, train travel, poor behavior in the theater, and fidgeting this episode. Music break is Fugitive Air by Of Montreal. Here's hoping we remembered to bleep that one swearsy.
