Past Episodes

  • Episode 360: Beadnose, Call Me Aired: Wednesday, October 9, 2019

    Wow, we have a jam-packed show today, Space Cadets!  We start off with a few stories from Ross's super-fun college reunion (it's been five years already?! Time flies!) and then we're into the rules for our very impromptu contest! If you know Ross's secret and want an SoT swag bag (for real, we have them), send the name of his new D&D character to! You've got until the 16th so act now! Then we're talking about the silly silly furor over a new cute doll line. After the break we've got menses! We've got fat bears!

  • Episode 359: Nnnrrrrrrrrrrr Aired: Wednesday, October 2, 2019

    Wow, Space Cadets, we are tired and wired on today's Sound of Tomorrow! Out of the gate (heh) ('cause they, like, have gates at airports, right?), Ross is trying out his new tight seven on airplane food! On to DND adventures and then back to.... travel? with a discussion of the confusing new NYS driver's licensing system and can we get on a plane or not? Don't trust us on this one--we're obviously confused. After the break, we're back with more on how to suss out whether that news you like is fake or not and then, blissfully, we're all headed home for naps! Success!

  • Episode 358: DJHZ..... Again! Aired: Wednesday, September 25, 2019

  • Episode 356: Big Beastie Knowledge Aired: Wednesday, September 11, 2019

    Why isn't this ep called Wilderness Tips, you ask? Because, ages ago, I'm pretty sure we had one named that after a Margaret Atwood book I no longer own, alas! Still---we got a kicker of a skit for you today, Space Cadets, ukes and everything for YOU! Then we're talking Green Army Men AND WOMEN (and also Enby soldiers, too, naturally!), residential Facebook sites (Welcome to city living, jerks!) and, frighteningly, a plan to monitor people with mental illness to prevent mass shootings (no..... please, no.).

  • Episode 355: Lazy Aired: Wednesday, September 4, 2019

    Nah... laziness isn't even a thing! Quit being so judgey! Leave that up to us, the profession Liberal Weenies. Spoiler alert, yes, we're talking laziness in the second half of the show but not before we talk about that Analog Award thing (what? I'm posting this later than usual. I can't be expected to remember everything we talked about, jeesh!) a discuss an NPR listicle on 7 ways to get out of debt! Fun fact: don't believe credit card companies when they say interest rates are high to motivate us to pay them back more quickly; buncha liars.*

  • Episode 354: You Wanna Buy a Watch? Aired: Wednesday, August 28, 2019

    Psst! Clank clank. That's right, your Radio Friends The Sound of Tomorrow are back for another hour of giggles and tomfoolery! After a brief Wildlife Talk with Ross and Heather, we're forging ahead with fake news. We were not rescued by the nice people who came in to find something they'd left in the studio so the music break was "Havana" by The Mabuses. After that? More friendship! And some commentary on masculinity.... Stay til the end to hear me start to panic when frat boys are mentioned! I had some bad experiences in college, y'all. 

  • Episode 353: Pao De Queijo Aired: Wednesday, August 21, 2019

    Mmmmm..... Brazilian cheese buns sure do sound good, don't they, Space Cadets? You know who will never know if they are? We won't!!! Because someone stole the tapioca flour (and the battery-operated Christmas candles) off my porch. That's right--HZ here hankering for a hunk of Pao De Queijo, forever unfulfilled. But there's joy and light! Because we're talking theft on today's new SoT but we're also talking friendship and books Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to send Ross a Snapchat of the cute thing Nigel is doing right now.

  • Episode 352: Silent Book Club Aired: Wednesday, August 14, 2019

    Ain't no book club party like a silent book club party 'cause a silent book club party is SILENT! But not us.... no, on today's new Sound of Tomorrow, we're neither silent nor are we actually doing a book club! Instead, we're talking gratitude lists and their opposite! We're talking blue green algae (which isn't even algae at all)! We're talking boycotts! And maybe we're talking, just a little bit, cats!

    Song of the day: "Fugitive Air" by Of Montreal.

  • Episode 351: Pizza Party Aired: Wednesday, August 7, 2019

    It's a pretty cheesy show today, Space Cadets, but we got your all new Sound of Tomorrow right here! After the delicious skit, Heather tries to dive right in but Ross demands a quick Nigel Tale! He soon regrets it, though, so we're off on the topic of anxiety and metal illness. After the TMGB DAS duo, "Have this Thing" and "Spy" (the original Dial-A-Song demo version), we're back with historical women! Short and sweet, yeah? Now.... where's my pizza?
