On this episode, we recap all of the fun we had at Comicpalooza 2019! We shoutout our favorite panels, podcasts, and activities of the weekend. Then, SK REVIEWS the latest album from Tyler the Creator “IGOR” and Trent reviews Ariana Grande’s recent stop in Houston on her SWEETENER World Tour. Lastly, we solve the case of what brands we would sell out for, and why.
In this episode, SK and Jason take on all things film LIVE from the show floor of COMICPALOOZA. We talk DIY video making and how to get started, camp and queer films as influence and our thoughts on the MET GALA’s take on camp, and we solve the mystery “Why Remake Good Films When Bad Films Are Standing Right There?” Thanks again COMICPALOOZA for having us again this year for the Podcast Partnership Program!
On this episode, we hear wedding bells! Not for us, but one of Devin’s best friends. She’s tying the knot and that got us thinking, what the hell is up with weddings? What’s the deal with those? Why do we do them? FIND OUT AND LISTEN IN!
On this episode of Space Case we have reviews, an origin story, and a crash course in the language of canines. Devin falls prey to the YouTube algorithm with surprisingly positive results and does a review of an obscure Russian synth-pop band. After that, we move back to the states to elaborate on a Rolling Stone article about the “choircore” movement of the 60s and 70s and crack the case on the conservative phenomenon. We then end with a lesson in how to speak to your dog and how to understand what they’re saying.
On this week’s episode of Space Case, Devin dives into a bit of a history lesson. Given her fondness for the term “hoist with his own petard,” we delve into a list of inventors who died tragically at the hands of their own inventions. What was their legacy? Could it have been prevented? Was it really their inventions that did them in, or was it their own ego? We crack the case!
On this episode of Space Case, we review some tunes and some rad beverages. Stephen Malkmus drops Groove Denied but Devin says “Access Granted.” She also says “okay werk” to the new Orange Vanilla Coke Zero and what we THOUGHT was an April Fools Day Joke was NO. JOKE. people. The Dr. Pepper Milkshake from Whataburger was REAL and Trent weighs on whether it should stick around for longer than a “limited time.” Finally, we crack the case of the stigma of smoking and why it’s still considered “cool” and “glamorous” in pop culture and in real life.
On this episode of Space Case we flash allll the way back man to the 60s, 70s, and 80s, for some groovy and radical mysteries! First, the mystery that took the internet by storm this past week about Garfield phones from the 1980s washing up on a shore in France. What’s up with that?!
Then, we discuss the Shaggs who are perhaps music history most discussed “so bad they’re good” band. Or, maybe they’re just so bad they’re bad? You decide…
And finally our very own Houston Chronicle shared an article they originally published in 1989 on teen life and “lingo” The results, are something else.
On this episode, we take a deep dive into the the strangest albums to be #1 on the Billboard charts with a particular interest in the 1990s. It’s interesting to see how trends have changed so much compared to the “anything goes” genre free for all of the 90s. One of the biggest albums of the 90s and of all time came from the wave of Eurodance music; “The Sign” by Ace of Base. BUT, did you know that this beloved Swedish import comes with a problematic past? LISTEN TO SPACE KIDDETTES CRACK THE CASE!

On this week’s episode, Space Kiddettes hit the headlines to get to the bottom of what exactly is glitter? It’s a crafting and beauty STAPLE we all know and love, but what exactly is it?
