Heavy title? Don’t let it fool you, it’s fun! Every year we do AT LEAST one big episode about music and what it’s like to make it etc. So for this year’s offering, we wanted to go BIG (at least for the title) We wanted to check in and hear (from people besides ourselves) about what it’s like to make AND consume music right here and right now in 2021. First, we chat with music reviewer, pop culture commentator, podcaster, and TikTok ICON Pablo, The Don about music journalism and reviewing music with stan culture and the artists themselves at the READY to attack. THEN, we hang with Sarah from California synth pop band TRANSVIOLET about making music, staying creative, and TOURING this past year to today. Let us know your thoughts after you listen! We wanna keep the discussion going!

On this week’s episode, it’s Part 3 of our deep dive into the world of diet sodas! After the last couple of week’s episodes about Diet Coke and TaB there was only one soda left, Dr. Pepper. Open your Texas history books folks and get ready for a WILD ride. Hope you had fun with our TRILOGY of epic proportions about the history of diet sodas! Listen in to find out more!

On this week’s episode, it’s Part 2 of our deep dive into the world of diet sodas! After last week’s episode about Diet Coke, we were left wondering about it’s predecessor TaB during most of the episode. We THOUGHT we knew about it, but we seemed to not have some of the historical details straight. So, what was supposed to be a one time case about Diet Coke is now destined to become a TRILOGY of epic proportions about the history of diet sodas! Listen in to find out more!

On this week’s episode, we dive into one of Devin’s biggest passions; Diet Coke! After seeing an article about how some people claim to be “addicted” to Diet Coke and simply can’t quit the stuff, we decided to crack the case on whether that can even HAPPEN and are diet sodas actually THAT BAD for you? ON THE FLIP SIDE, there’s other people who DON’T CARE and are proud to be Diet Coke fiends. So, this left us wondering, WHY does Diet Coke have such a hold on people? Additionally, how did diet sodas in general develop such a strong hold on society? Listen in to find out!

On this week’s episode, we’re cracking the case, on WHY we like to crack cases? Well, sort of. True Crime as a genre has reached critical mass, peak interest, and fandom MADNESS in the last year BUT with all this interest, no one has figured out exactly WHY we’re so drawn to this material. Is it pure entertainment? Is there a deeper meaning? What does this say about our society? Tune in to find out!

This week’s episode has gone to the dogs! After reading a NEXTDOOR post, we were prompted to get on the SK Soapbox and let everyone know that the public perception of “pit bulls” is unwarranted and plain NOT RIGHT. First of all, did you know that there’s actually no such thing as a “pit bull” ? (as far as a recognized breed) Well kiddies, class is in session. We pulled some credible sources and we’re ready to set the record STRAIGHT for our dear dog friends.

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.
