  • Episode 274: Ross in Space Aired: Wednesday, February 7, 2018

    Oh boy.... Space Cadets, I feel like we should apologize for this episode. You see, as he often does, Ross crawled into a random car for a nap but, this time, he chose the wrong car and now he's lost in space. Or, well, not lost.... we know where he is. But even the crack team of awesome WAYO techs are, as yet, unable to bring him home safely. So, in this exciting episode of the Sound of Tomorrow, pantsless and spinning, Starman Ross uses the last of his iPhone battery to call into the WAYO studios where Heather holds down the fort solo. What did we even talk about? NASA and stuff.
