On this week’s episode, it’s another case of things that shouldn’t be falling from the sky! The year was 1970, and the town of Florence, Oregon had a big WHALE SIZED problem on it’s hands. How would they rid their beach of this HUGE dead whale? It may seem like a simple solution, but it’s FAR from a no brainer. If you remember our episode on the Kentucky Meat Shower, let’s just say, you’ll be hit with some MAJOR deju vu.
After a brief vacay, we’re BACK! After our month long PRIDECAST series, we’re back in action with a case sent in to the SPACE CASE HOTLINE by friend of the show Ned Gayle. Back in the 80s and 90s, the PSA circuit had a STAPLE figure in McGruff the Crime Dog. He taught us how to “take a bite out of crime” and starred in commercials, public appearances, PSAs, and even dropped a few SICK mixtapes. But, where does his legacy stand today? And did this beacon of crime prevention commit a few crimes himself? Tune in to find out!
On this week’s episode of Space Case, it’s the final installment of our month long PRIDECAST: Podcasting with Pride! series. We conclude PRIDECAST with a roundtable of queer artists, activists, and community workers here in Texas to talk about what Pride means to them, hopes for the community going forward, the pitfalls of focusing queer trauma over queer humanity, AND we play a round of QUEER TRIVIA. Our panelists: Joelle Bayaa-Uzuri and Jordan Edwards from THE NORMAL ANOMALY INITIATIVE (Houston, Texas) – The Normal Anomaly Initiative centers Black queer+ persons to overcome barriers, end stigma, and problematic narratives to actualize a new normal. STOO (Houston, Texas) – a multi-disciplinary artist, activist, superstar, AND one of the founders of the queer artist showcase and collective ABUNDANTLY QUEER. They were most recently nominated for 2021’s Non-Binary Grand Marshall for PRIDE HOUSTON and were seen onstage in GODSPELL at the DeLuxe Theater. Gregory Josephe Graye (San Marcos/Austin, Texas) – Greg is a male drag performer, figure model, community activist, and podcaster who loves to tell the stories of his community.

Since MY BLOODY JUDY specializes in queerness and horror, we knew they’d be the PERFECT pair to chat about this under-appreciated sub-genre filled with CLASSICS like Underworld, Resident Evil, Aliens, Van Helsing, Blade, and more. PLUS we crack the case on why ACTION HORROR has become synonymous with the zombie genre.

On this week’s episode of SPACE CASE, you’re probably looking at the title and thinking “what the hell do those words mean?!” And listener, we’re right there with you. Over the last year and ESPECIALLY this last month, these terms have reached peak discourse and the zenith of influence. But what do they mean? Better yet, do they actually MEAN anything? Listen in to find out!
On this week’s episode, it’s a case that was TAILOR MADE for Space Case. You knew we’d talk about it, you WANTED us to talk about it, so here it is; what the hell was going on with that tiger that was loose in West Houston? For the last week or so, this was the case on everyone’s mind and HOT off the press this weekend, a resolution? Is this case officially cracked? Tune in to find out!
On this week’s episode of SPACE CASE, we’re taking a WILD nostalgia trip all about VHS! Last month, a woman was charged for felony embezzlement due to a 21 year outstanding warrant for an overdue VHS tape. As crazy as that sounds, it turns out this is NOT the first time this has happened. What overdue VHS tapes would be worth serving time for? Wait till you hear these titles… THEN! we talk about some VHS tapes that are going for LOTS of money online and why.
