Past Episodes

  • Episode 222: Shocking! Aired: Wednesday, February 8, 2017

    Not to shock you or anything, Space Cadets, but we kind of want to shock you! Not metaphorically. Like, literally. With electricity. But only because an authority figure told us to do it! Hey, nah, we're just kidding. In today's actually not very shocking Sound of Tomorrow, Heather's got a high pony and Ross is wearing eight shirts and a cute brooch! Plus, psychology today (and in the past), budgeting tips, and a wee bit o' Sot Book Club stuff! Tune in for the politics, stay for the penny savers; you won't want to miss one single word!

  • Episode 221: Gaslighting a Sealion Aired: Wednesday, February 1, 2017

    In this exciting episode, Heather finally gets her segment on words! They may be different words than she'd originally intended (Are those notes lost to history? Find out on a future Sound of Tomorrow) but today she and Ross are talking lying, gaslighting, and sealioning. Plus books!

    Goooooo sports!

    Music today from They Might Be Giants with "The Cap'm."

  • Episode 220: Punching Nazis Aired: Wednesday, January 25, 2017

    Space Cadets! Someone left a ukulele at the WAYO office and Heather is not afraid to play it! Ross is, however, afraid she may steal it. To reassure you, she did not. The uke is tuned and back on the shelf. But that doesn't mean mean we're good people! But we're not that bad, either.

  • Episode 219: Cruisin' Aired: Wednesday, January 18, 2017

    Ahh, Ross is back in the studio and all is right with the world! We're kicking it off with some vacation chat about the fantastic Star Trek cruise he and Announcer Mike attended and we segue into an interesting and disturbing discussion of Ross's interaction with a not-so-cool Trekkie (his word, not mine. I know to say Trekker!). After the break, we're back to discuss the benefits of diversity in groups. There are lots of benefits, turns out! Makes perfect sense, really.... And we close it up with a quick quiz of my (hi--Heather typing here) vitamin supplement knowledge which is....

  • Episode 218: DJ Blackstar Aired: Wednesday, January 11, 2017

    While Ross and Mike have Star Trek adventures on the high seas, DJHZ is at it again, doing what she loves best.... dancing and crying.

    January 10th was a day I remained blissfully ignorant of David Bowie's passing. Being on the east coast, I only learned of it on the 11th. In honor of that horrible, heart-wrenching day, I'm bringing you Bowie, Bowie, Bowie.... and some other stuff, too. Thanks for indulging me, Space Cadets.


  • Episode 217: A New Year's Revolution Aired: Wednesday, January 4, 2017

    Oooh, Space Cadets, today we're taking our title from Ragan Chastain's recent blog posting of the same name on her excellent site and we're talking about that blog posting, too! Once we have our revolutions in order, we're onto some civics and philosophy, so much so we have to save our social media news for the next episode! Too much content to cover? I say, yes, please!

    Music break today by The Quitters with "That's Cool, That's Trash."

  • Episode 216: The Week Between Aired: Wednesday, December 28, 2016

    Hi Space Cadets. HZ here, just finishing up my delicious and nourishing repast of soyloni and spicy cheese spread. Et voila, my compliments to the chef. In today's exciting Sound of Tomorrow, we're starting it off easy listening smooth jazz style with some holiday wrap up and a quick round of mansplaining from Ross. You know how he loves to do that and I think it's pretty cute, really. Once we're warmed up, it's off to the races talking pockets and fake fake news! 

  • Episode 215: Holiday Spectacular 2016 Aired: Thursday, December 22, 2016

    Space Cadets, join us for a weird and wonderful adventure of songs and stories in this very special all new Sound of Tomorrow holiday time spectacular. From all of us at The Sound of Tomorrow, we wish you a very happy holiday season and a wonderful new year!

  • Episode 214: Holly Jolly DJHZ Aired: Wednesday, December 14, 2016

    Space Cadets!!! It's that time of the year.... that's right. Time for a Holly Jolly DJ mix from your favorite (?) Babe with the DJ Power! So make yourself a cuppa hot chocolate (go ahead. spike it.), sit back, relax, and enjoy some holiday tunes from the very very echoey Spacebridge.

  • Episode 213: Lady Business, Part II Aired: Wednesday, December 7, 2016

    Space Cadets, remember back in March 2015* when we talked about lady business? Well, we're at it again! I know, I know... like we ever stopped. Anyhow! On today's all new all exciting all ladies all the time Sound of Tomorrow we've got PMS as a cultural malady and the question of popular holiday tune "Baby It's Cold Outside" date-rapey or not. Plus! Live, in studio theatre! You won't want to miss a word.

    Music break from They Might Be Giants with "Bills. Bills, Bills."
