  • Episode 168: Bowie, Etc. Aired: Wednesday, January 13, 2016

    This week's Sound of Tomorrow starts off a bit somber as we discuss David Bowie's untimely passing.

"I Can't Give Everything Away" from Bowie's latest *Blackstar* is today's music break and then we're back with a lighter topic: a continued discussion of Marie Kondo's theory of decluttering. The challenge is set and we'll report the results on February 3! We finish out the show with a little science news and that is that.

    Thank you, David Bowie. May you rest in peace.
