*THIS EPISODE ORIGINALLY AIRED 4/27/21*

On this week’s episode of SPACE CASE, we seek to answer a question in reference to a statement by Alex Jones about “putting chemicals in the water that turn the freakin’ frogs gay!” Did someone or something ACTUALLY put “chemicals” in the water and did that chemical indeed turn some frogs “gay?” Well, kinda, but not really in that way. What do we mean by that? Well, thanks to scientists like Tyrone Hayes, we’re able to crack this case! And trust us, the results may surprise you…

On this week’s episode of Space Case, are we a sophomore slump? Or are we comeback kid of the year? YOU DECIDE! You guessed it, we’re discussing what it means for an artist to have a “sophomore slump.” Usually, a sophomore slump describes what happens when a successful artist has a hit first album that is then followed up by a commercial or critical failure. This can also be the case with a release in an artists’ discography that just so happens to be right after their most successful release to date. We discuss criteria for this classification and give some examples of famous sophomore slumps. In turn, we also countdown some of our favorite sophomore SLAMS or albums that we think were an even better follow up to their previous release.

In your opinion, what’s your pick for WORST sophomore slumps? OR your favorite sophomore SLAMS?

After a summer hiatus, Space Case is BACK BABY!!! For our come back episode, we’re cracking the case on an age old question; why don’t we walk cats like we do dogs? Technically we could, but why don’t we? The larger case explores the differences between having an indoor or outdoor cat and which MAY be the better option. We bring you the facts and opinions from experts and even give you a guide on how to leash train your cat should you choose to do so. At the end of the episode, it’s the return of everyone’s favorite segment TALES FROM NEXTDOOR! Of course, it’s a cat related tale.

On this week’s episode of Space Case, we take a FANTASTIC journey into the world of B movies. Dear listener, take a moment to imagine a time where names like Roger Corman, Stan Lee, and The Fantastic Four were not a one way ticket to a box office smash…are you done imagining yet? Good. NOW imagine that this movie not only got made, but never actually got distributed to theaters EVEN THOUGH it was fully shot, edited, and completed. Does it sound insane? Well, it’s real life baby! Tune in to get the 4-1-1 on this film lore.

On this week’s episode of Space Case, we’re headed back to the mall! It’s been a while since we’ve headed on a nostalgic trip to the once sacred space of the mall but this time there’s a little twist. First, we’ll be chatting about some iconic and (not so) forgotten Houston stores that were stand alone but ALSO located in malls throughout the city. THEN we delve into a couple of iconic 90s mall favorites that were eventually purchased by some fast fashion giants. LASTLY, we scroll through a list of 2000s MUST DOs of the mall and see if we agree.
