    Ooh, Space Cadets, do we have a treat for you today! Joining Ross and Heather in the studio is musician, columnist, and (in her own words) magnificent mess Cora Treoir Duncan! We're talking music, trans issues, physics, the multiverse, you name it, and we need to have Cora back again soon because there's so much more to talk about!

And don't forget: vote The Cocktail Party across the ballot this November!

  • Episode 198: Free Listening Aired: Wednesday, August 10, 2016

    Today's Sound of Tomorrow is all about listening so lean on in as we... talk.... About listening. Seriously, though, got some cool info from going on and a little bit of reading fun time, too. Also, Ross might have Zika.

    Tune in, won't you?

    You know it's going to be a high energy show when, five minutes before they go one, Heather says to Ross, "I'm so hungry!" and Ross responds with "I'm so tired!" But they pulled it out nevertheless! In today's exciting episode, we have a shout out to our friends Stacey and Cory from Air Wreck Radio (, some slam poetry from Heather and her 4th grade class, and lots and lots of science news! If you're squeamish, you might want to skip that last part.....
