    We promised not to be angry for too too long and, you know what? We lied. Talking Meryl Streep and the slippery slope to fascism plus Heather gives a brief rundown of things she was told she ought to be when she was a girl (spoiler--she did not succeed). But we clean it up toward then end! So, we tried?

  • Episode 472: Lady Speedstick Aired: Wednesday, June 29, 2022

    Well. It's hard to even know what to do, how to be, you know? How much can a person take? It just seems.... futile. But we're still fighting. Always still fighting. Also, we saw some movies!


  • Episode 471: Mound Aired: Wednesday, June 22, 2022

    This week, we're Murphing it up with our new SoT mascot Mound, we're talking about Juneteenth, and we're feeling the soul-crushing dread of yet more scarelore! It's a real journey on today's Sound of Tomorrow.

    It's the show with the people who talk about the things and sometimes they make sense and sometimes they don't!

Plus, learn to pronounce "gephyrophobia"! All that and more on this new Sound of Tomorrow.

  • Rerun: Your Summertime DJHZ Aired: Wednesday, June 8, 2022

    It's almost summertime, Space Cadets, and we've taken the day off to go to the beach! Alone! I did this Summertime DJHZ mix in June of 2019 and it's so good, I can't even top it so a replay it is. Stay cool! xoxoDJHZ

  • Episode 469: Wow Aired: Wednesday, June 1, 2022

    We're on a bit of a whiplash in today's new Sound of Tomorrow! We kick it off light and fun with a tale of Road Trip Adventure and somehow segue seamlessly (ahem) into a discussion of some gun statistics. Toward the end of the episode, Ross cites a number of the sources he references but here's the NPR one mentioned most frequently: 

  • Episode 468: Soup For Life Aired: Wednesday, May 25, 2022

    Things you'll learn on today's Sound of Tomorrow (in no particular order):

    1. Your car wants to kill you.
    2. Don't lick pus sacs. Sacks? Play it safe and don't lick either. Don't lick any buboes while you're at it, too, ok?
    3. We put a salad bar on the moon. You're welcome.

  • Rerun: Independence Day 2019 Aired: Wednesday, May 18, 2022

    Happy 4th, everyone! Hope you're not hiding under the sofa from the fireworks but, if you are, we've got something to block out the noise: this here Sound of Tomorrow! Kicking it off clumsily but getting in gear talking about ways to slow down the perception that time is flying. After that? A fun drinking game proposal for if you watch the rally, um, parade from DC tomorrow! After the music break during which you'll enjoy The Incredibly Moses Leroy doing "The Fourth of July,: we're back talking TV. That's right--only TV. Not abortion news. Nope. Not that. 

  • Episode 467: Acute Angle Aired: Wednesday, May 11, 2022

    Goodness me, it's a new Sound of Tomorrow! We're staring  off light with a tale of The Thing In Heather's House and a little disaster preparedness. Apparently Ross knows everything there is to know about radioactivity and space weather but it's all news to Heather. Then our very level-headed, fact-based discussion of reproductive rights devolves quickly into frenzied screaming. It's fun! We promise!
