Past Episodes

  • Episode 262: Boycott! Aired: Wednesday, November 15, 2017

    It's a brand new Sound of Tomorrow and Ross has got his boycott on and his corneas off! And that's just the skit! Breaking trend for our recent shows, we're keeping Act I light with a little talk of Sound of Tomorrow ChocoToys, good news for same-sex marriage in Australia, and gluten (in)sensitivity! However, Act II? Yeah.... we're back to talking about sexual harassment, assault, and abuse. You didn't think we wouldn't, did you?

    Music today from Jonathan Coulton with "Don't Feed the Trolls" from his newest album "Solid State."

  • Episode 261: Tin Foil Hat Aired: Wednesday, November 8, 2017

    Hey! How is it you're listening in on our thoughts!? Oh, that's right.... we're spewing them all over radio and podcast land! In this exciting episode of the SoT, we're talking voting, smartypants sheep, cancellations, and extreme reactions! It's better than that description implies.

    Say, did you know we were on Foreign Exchange (Mondays on WAYO, 6:30-7:00) the other night? We had a great time with Maria and Phil and you can relive that great time right here:

  • Episode 260: Floppy Organs Aired: Wednesday, November 1, 2017

    Space Cadets, don't let the whimsical episode name fool you; we're back from our Halloween hijinks and we're talking about #MeToo. Throw in some grammar snobbery and that's the show! BUT--there's a ukulele. So it's a win!

  • Episode 257: Not Her Fault Aired: Wednesday, October 11, 2017

    Space Cadets! In this exciting episode of the Sound of Tomorrow, Heather and Ross discover they're the perfect horroscopic marriage match (Sorry, Announcer Mike!) and love is in the air. As are, alas, sexism and racism. But not from us! We're just talking about 'em. That plus news from Planet 9. LONG LIVE PLUTO!

    Music today from Little Jack Melody and his Young Turks with "Gone in October." Try not to cry. We dare you.

  • Episode 256: Clipsy Aired: Wednesday, October 4, 2017

    It looks like you're trying to listen to the Sound of Tomorrow! Want some help!? Of course you do. So here it is! In this exciting edition of the SoT, we're talking about Ross's adventures with Hilary Clinton, things that should surprise us but no longer do, i.e., hypocritical and cavalier Republican representatives, and sex work! Plus, of course..... Clipsy. Happy birthday, Nigel!

    Music today from They Might Be Giants with "The Cap'm," a song that is fun to sing and play on ukulele.

  • Episode 255: Lovejoy Aired: Wednesday, September 27, 2017

    Ross is back, Space Cadets, and he has tales from HawaiiCon!!! Along with ConTales (not to be confused with Chemtrails), we're talking placebo and the value of material goods vs. spending your money on experiences. We close it up with a little book talk (Steve! Give me back my copy of "The Wanting Seed!") and a big announcement about [drum roll, please] the next installment of The SoT Book Club! That's right--we're following up "Binti" with "Binti Home!" Will we then move on to "Lolita"? Maybe we'd best save that for 2018. 

  • Episode 254: DJ Dresden Returns! Aired: Wednesday, September 20, 2017

    Space Cadets, we're still minus a Ross but never fear! It's not another boring Heather Solo show today. Oh nooooo..... on today's Sound of Tomorrow, we have a super fun treat as real professional DJ Dresden once again appears on the show! He and Heather are mixing it up, trading track for track and doing a little commentary in between. It's an eclectic mix, to say the least, but it came out great and we hope you like it, too! 

    PS--sorry about that time Heather played Of Montreal's "No Conclusion" in its entirety a few months ago. There's none of that nonsense going on today!
