Past Episodes

  • Episode 245: The Doctor Aired: Wednesday, July 19, 2017

    Ooh, Space Cadets, have we got a fun-filled show for you today!! We start off with some Lady Doctor Bingo and talk of the future of Dr. Who. Then, keeping with the theme of lady doctors, we go straight to the gynecologist. The evil, blackhearted gynecologist who insists you can't bring someone with you and, really, you're not allowed to feel apprehensive. Just quit it. Ugh.... 

  • Episode 244: Big Globe Aired: Wednesday, July 12, 2017

    Dear Sweet Space Cadets..... we're a little scattered today but, as I just summed up the ep as when writing to a FB hacker, ahem, I mean, Old Friend, "what we lack in content, we make up for in hysteria?" But, really, it's not so bad! Today we start off with Ross's tale of horror from a Southern Tier hotel of "some repute." Poor did he make it through? Once we stop shivering and calm ourselves from that fright, we're onto some glurge follow-up, some Amelia Earhart follow-up, and a little bit of memory talk. What were our take-away points? I can't remember.

  • Episode 243: Chris Thompson Aired: Wednesday, July 5, 2017

    Space Cadets, today's exciting new Sound of Tomorrow is made even more exciting as comedian and all-around nice person Chris Thompson joins Ross and Heather in the WAYO studios! If you're accessing this file, it's too late to catch Chris's show but you can and should find him here: We're talking religion, whales, Amelia Earhart, black girls, and cat calling. And may we say, hey, babe, your ass looks fiiiiiiiine? Or, we mayn't? So sorry!

  • Episode 242: HOT PICKS Aired: Wednesday, June 28, 2017

    Ooh, this episode is almost more excitement than we can handle! After a few tech glitches (all Heather's fault), we dive right in with a fun call from a big fan of the SoT! It's always nice to hear kind words! <3 After our caller bids us fond adieux, leaving us pondering birds and fish, we promise some fun fun time! So we get right into some not-so-great things that happened at Pride. :( BUT! Part 2 really does bring in the promised fun as we're joined by Woody Battaglia, host of WAYO's fantastic program Almost Tuesday! We're bringing in the Hot Picks (cue theme!

  • Episode 241: Stripes Aired: Wednesday, June 21, 2017

    Oh, Space Cadets..... We were going to get to so many topics in today's new show! But, as usual... we got to talking. And, as Lady Raptastic (how we miss her!) once said about us, we sure can talk. So today we're talking about the Pride flag and revisiting a point Ross made last week as restated by the one and only Lady Bunny. Part 2 is all catcalls all the time. Pull up a chair, saddle up an earbud, and have a listen! And, for the love of all that is holy, get a towel!

    Music today from Austin Lake and friends live on Teen Set Radio with "You Spin Me."

  • Episode 240: RuPaul et al. Aired: Wednesday, June 14, 2017

    Space Cadets, HZ here and I'm so sorry.... The best part of this episode really took place before we even got into the studio. How Ross loves to hear outdated songs strummed upon a a untuned ukulele! As they say, music soothes the savage breast. But not so much that we're not back to our usual doom 'n' gloom this week! After a brief RuPaul Recap, it's right into talking about whether drag is harmful to the trans* community.

  • Episode 239: Uncharacteristically Upbeat Aired: Wednesday, June 7, 2017

    Space Cadets! What happened to Your Favorite Co-Host and The Babe With the Power? Why are they all full of good news? Don't worry..... it doesn't last. In this exciting episode of The Sound of Tomorrow, we're kicking it off with a tale of FB outlandishness but following up quickly with some GOOD NEWS! Midlife crisis? Not a thing, turns out. Act two kicks off with more GOOD NEWS! Happiness? Totally a thing and there are even ways to enhance it! But before we get too out of control with the good feelings, it's back to reality. Because, not that this is a surprise, but--sexism?

  • Episode 238: Covfefe Aired: Wednesday, May 31, 2017

    Allergies? A cold? Something else? Who knows and who cares because it's time for [drum roll] today's all new Sound of Tomorrow! You know we couldn't resist "covfefe" to kick it off but the surprise is the STELLAR performance review that starts the show! Then we're off to the races with a story of people on the internet behaving nicely (what???) and some horror-scopic horrors! Rounding out part one are a few adorable lists from Janelle Shane's awesome neural network. We're back with more robots and some good old fashioned cat 'n' dog science after the break!

  • Episode 237: Twin Peaks! Aired: Wednesday, May 24, 2017

    Oh boy..... we're pretty punchy today..... I (Hi--HZ posting the ep here) totally had a fit of hysterical giggles during a meeting at work if that's any indication of how punchy I am.... Like, the giggles where you're really close to crying? Yeah. Good stuff. ANYHOW! In today's exciting Sound of Tomorrow, we start off with an not-so-great pupdate. We're all hoping things turn out ok with sweet Ilyana's ACL. Post pupdate, it's self-indulgent TV time where we pretty much just ramble on about Twin Peaks Season 3!  Don't forget--we're still a podcast!

  • Episode 236: Problematic Aired: Wednesday, May 17, 2017

    In this exciting episode of the Sound of Tomorrow, we're kicking it off all smiles! All gigantic American smiles! All a creepy, toothy rictus mean to reassure but terrifying nevertheless.... and it doesn't get less scary as we move into a listicle that reminds Heather much too much of herself! But Ross is cool with it. Agreed--feelings ARE awful! As we also find out about problematic things in part two... or is it problematic itself that's problematic? We'll never know because we're too busy patting ourselves on the back (again)!
