  • Episode 338: Protesters Aired: Wednesday, May 8, 2019

    We're out of the gates with a great big skit during which we broke very minimally (pat pat) on today's new Sound of Tomorrow! After the verry long drama, we've got an Unshelved Mystery (whoosh) and then it's time to hear "Month of May" by Arcade Fire! The second act gets, frankly, more somber and frightening as we talk about anti-abortion protesters and the new bad on abortion in Georgia. I'm not kidding, folks... I'm terrified.

    But also: menses!

  • Episode 337: A Miscellaneous Wednesday Aired: Wednesday, May 1, 2019

    Gosh, we were mostly looking for people to call in today and let me know what they wanted me to leave them in my will but I guess all our listeners have some phone anxiety, poor honies! But we have tips to help that for you! And we have some stuff about BOOKS, yeah, we love 'em. After rocking out to a little "Psychotic Feeling" (my latest non-stop Of Montreal jam), we're talking diet culture and weight stigma. You know we couldn't keep the whole show sunny and fun!

  • Episode 336: Sleep Animals Aired: Wednesday, April 24, 2019

    Aww, Space Cadets, we got some sleepy animals for you today! And some smart animals that definitely know their names! Sooo.... speaking of sleepy, indeed, this episode description is. Ok! This episode, we're talking about how cats know their names and so do dogs, we got a Jack the Ripper Unshelved Mystery (whoosh, there goes the dust), we got a sleep study where you get to choose an animal, we got some great news about a recently developed malaria vaccine, and we got a little teeny stuff on voting! Are your breasts akin to any specific canine breed?

    Ah, Space Cadets.... we're shuffling papers, we're cold but still sweating, we're woefully underprepared--oh, wait, no, that's just me, HZ! Ross is on point (and en pointe) as always! SO--kicking it off with a warning to those of us who fake smile alll the time and moving right into some good news for LGBTQIA+ kids and teachers! Quick break for an unofficial TMBG DAS "All the Lazy Boyfriends" and we're back with a discussion of Autism Awareness! Short and sweet, huh? I think I need a shower now.....

  • Episode 334: Bloody Nature Aired: Wednesday, April 10, 2019

    We did it! Space Cadets, on this very special Sound of Tomorrow, we kick it off with a skit written by the fantastic Austin Rich (featuring an original track by good old HZ herself) and then, after a little black hole update, Lee Chabowski and Rick Brame from Bloody Nature ( call in from their shooting trip in Florida! By shooting, we mean rolling film, of course. Sounds like host of Bloody Nature Dale Attenbrow is handling enough of the, like, gun shooting.... eek.

  • Episode 333: Technical Difficulties Pt. II Aired: Wednesday, April 3, 2019

    Welp.... we were going to have a really fun show today with Lee Chabowski calling in and we were going to talk all about his cool new thing "Bloody Nature" available here: and all his neat and awesome projects. And then the phones went down. So, instead, we're talking.... yes! Women's issues!! 7 ways the world isn't made for women PLUs a lively conversation about what's going on with Cardi B.!

    Oh yeah, it's the Vernal (not Venal, Ross!) Equinox and a Full Worm Moon to boot and we're back with an all new Sound of tomorrow for YOU! We got moon news complete with witchcraft tips for ll your Wiccan needs, we got an Unshelved Mystery (whoosh!), we got some fake old meats, and we got an Ozone Update!

  • Episode 330: Drill Brush Aired: Wednesday, March 13, 2019

    What? A Wednesday without a weather emergency in Rochester, NY? Can it be? Yess...... so we're entirely on point this week (and also en pointe, BTS), right? Nope! Because the time changed! Still, though, The Sound of Tomorrow is coming through with some HOT PICKS, a dog walk warning, and some pseudoscience news for you! That fake meat thing we keep talking about? Probably never going to get to it.
