Past Episodes

  • Episode 282: The Alt-Facts of Life Aired: Wednesday, April 4, 2018

    Girrrls! Girrrls!!! That's right. It's an all new Sound of Tomorrow with an especially amazing skit that HAS ITS OWN THEME SONG. Yessss! It's all downhill from there, really, but in the first half of the show, we're talking windpocalypse and puns and act two is all about email! And maybe a little bit about the last dodo on the internet..... 

    TMBG DAS: "This Microphone."*

    "Kindness is killing off my unfinished dreams
    And walking away, just walking away"

    See what I mean?

  • Episode 281: Ross Theta Aired: Wednesday, March 28, 2018

    Beep boop beep boop, who is that handsome AI? Well, it's good old Ross Theta, beaming in to bring joy and cheer and aiiiiieeeee! Power down, young man. Power down. In this exciting episode of the Sound of Tomorrow, we're kind of all over the place even more than usual! Let's see how much I remember.... We're talking Facebook data, urban legends, Roseanne, dogs at the hockey game, funeral candy, the SoT All-Time Greatest Hymns Playlist, and what doctors *really* think of your WebMD searches! Phew. I think that's nearly accurate. Hm.

    TMBG DAS: "Tick Tick Tick Tick"

  • Episode 280: Bropropriation Aired: Wednesday, March 21, 2018

    All right, I'll admit, the title is just because we learned a new word today. In this all new, all true, all for you Sound of Tomorrow, Ross does indeed pass the feminism terms quiz with flying colors but ALSO, we're talking about Marlon Bundo! We do a Rupaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 finale recap! Ross continues his struggle with the idea of his own replicant! And there's even a little foreshadowing for next week. So tune in now!! Or I'll zap you with my Infinity Gauntlet!

    TMBG Dial-a-Song song: "I Left My Body."

  • Episode 279: Pi Day Aired: Wednesday, March 14, 2018

    Space Cadets, tune in for this, the Sound of Tomorrow Pi Day Extravaganza! Where we're talking Pi, we're talking our favorite memories of learning about Pi, our favorite recipes for Pi and pie (can you believe Ross doesn't like a coconut cream pie?!), and we might even be THROWING a pie! Actually, nah, just kidding. Today's SoT is even BETTER! Act 1, we delve into some Unshelved Mysteries and Act 2 is a RuPaul ReCap which you will want to hear if only because we resurrected the old RR segment theme song! Now that's even better than Pi, right? Right.

  • Episode 278: Loaf Aired: Wednesday, March 7, 2018

    Happy International Women's Day! In this all new Sound of Tomorrow, we're skitting it up with Oscars hijinks and naming the episode after an anonymous message we got at the beginning of the show!

  • Episode 277: Michael Colón and Seth Schoenhardt Aired: Wednesday, February 28, 2018

    Ooo, Space Cadets, we have a super fun show for you today as Michael Colón and Seth Schoenhardt join us in the WAYO 104.3 studios to talk about The Oscars! Rocket science! Comedy! Outmoded technology! Other stuff!

  • Episode 276: Buried Treasure Aired: Wednesday, February 21, 2018

    In the first half of this bits and bobs Sound of Tomorrow, we're talking about turmeric! Debunking the debunkers! Buried treasure! Trans friends! Other stuff! In the second hour, because we are who we are, we get into some more serious conversation discussing #WakandaTheVote and the #NeverAgain movement. But don't forget: there are some truly inspiring people taking action in the world. There's hope.

    Today's They Might Be Giants' Dial-a-Song Song is "Jackie The Clipper!"

  • Episode 275: VDAY DJ Aired: Wednesday, February 14, 2018

    Happy Valentine's Day, Space Cadets! To celebrate this day of lurv, it's DJ Heather Zajkowski back in her echo chamber spinning all the saddest, most heartbreaking songs in her collection for YOU! What's your favorite saddest love song?

  • 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.

  • Episode 273: Mouthfeel Aired: Wednesday, January 31, 2018
    You know? Ross kind of nailed it with the track listing on this one so..... In today's very special, very mouthfeeling Sound of Tomorrow, we're talking:
