Episode 94: William Turton Wants to Get Luckey

The year is 2117. We're all living in a new reality, a *virtual* reality, after our leader, Edgelord Palmer Luckey (and his sentient wall), destroyed planet Earth for not being caucasian or male enough. Thankfully, episode 94 has survived the century. In it, Josh and William Turton, a staff writer at The Outline, discuss Luckey's wall, the Russian hacks that probably gave us President Trump to begin with, and Vanderpump Rules.

Episode 86: Andy Martino is Sweatin' to the Mystery

Long ago, in a kingdom far away, a magical king named Richard Simmons lived with two Dalmatian statues, an eccentric masseuse, and a (possible) witch. Then all of a sudden, the king went mysteriously missing. The eccentric masseuse says the witch is to blame. Can this possibly be true? To get the bottom of it, Outline staff writer, Emmy winner, and former New York Daily News reporter Andy Martino wrote a 2016 story about the case. Now the podcast Missing Richard Simmons has the public...


Episode 85: Playing Games with Chris Grant

You awaken in a dark cave, gasping for air as you emerge from a pool of cool blue water. You're alone, it's cold, but you feel like you've slept for a hundred years. You go to leave the cave but, GASP, there are dozens of obstacles and monsters in your way. In desperation, you search the ground for a tool. You find a stone tablet from which light pours at your very touch. The light swirls on the tablet until it says in bold, ancient letters "Tomorrow Episode 85 featuring Christ Grant."...


Episode 84: The Voice of Joanna Stern

"Siri, what happens on episode 84 of Tomorrow?" "On episode 84 of Tomorrow, Josh talks to Joanna Stern of the Wall Street Journal." "What do they discuss?" "Digital assistants, PewDiePie, donuts, and discrimination." "Great, play episode 84." "I'm afraid I can't do that, Dave." "What? My name's not Dave." "Oh, would you like to update your contacts?"


Episode 83: The Chris Geidner Clause

Amidst the ongoing apocalypse, beside the flaming wreckage of democracy and the ashes of the constitution, there has been a lot of people with no idea what they're talking about throwing around legal terms like "emoluments" and "tort." So to help get this nonsense back on track, this week Josh sits down with Chris Geidner, an award-winning legal editor at BuzzFeed and a former principal assistant attorney general in Ohio. Perhaps after an hour with Chris, we'll all know a bit more about...


Episode 82: Total Relaxation with Jeffrey Cranor

COMMUNITY BULLETIN: Joshua Topolsky, our humble hero, has scored an audience with Jeffrey Cranor, lord of Night Vale, creator of Within the Wires, eater of darkness, dreamer of dreams. If only it wasn't on street cleaning day. The two podcasters met in the abandoned warehouse behind the forbidden duck pond, to discuss pressing town issues like our growing dystopia, the fate of civilization, and the television show Lost. It is a conversation as dense with profundity as the trash cans on...


Episode 81: How Bad McKay Coppins Will Look

"McKay Coppins & Joshua Topolsky dissecting my presidency and the Super Bowl? These are some seriously bad dudes." – @realDonaldTrump "How does McKay Coppins know about my plans to quit the campaign early? Or my relationship with the very sexy Candice Bergen? Suspicious!" – @realDonaldTrump "Now I'm hearing McKay tells stories about spending a few days with me at Mar-a-Lago? He was VERY LUCKY to come along.

Welcome back to the new and improved Tomorrow with Joshua Topolsky. This week on the show Josh chats with Brianna Wu, a game developer and congressional candidate in South Boston, who's looking to fight for a better, more technological future. They discuss cyber security, the two-party system, internet etiquette, and that time all the wifi connected appliances tried to take over the world. Oh, and video games!


Episode 79: Paul Ford And The Worst Of 2016

Josh once again sits down with the inimitable Paul Ford to discuss the dumpster fire that was 2016. Honestly, if you go back and look at the description of last year's end-of-the-year special with Paul, you'll see that we called 2015 "one of the worst years on record" which, in light of the horrors of 2016, is hilarious. Although Donald Trump features heavily in both episodes. Anyway, they talk neo-Nazis, ice attacks, Twitter, voice-over acting, and of course: the Dipperz empire. We'll be...


An Update

Hello there. It’s been a while. And in fact, it will be a little longer before the proper return of Tomorrow. But it’s so close you can taste it. So, so close. In the meantime, however, we wanted to stop by with a little update, because it’s a very exciting time. The Outline has arrived, and you can check it out right this very second! And since you’re a fan of listening to things, we thought we’d give you a preview of a brand new podcast from The Outline. It’s called Sound Show, and it’s...


Episode 78: Emily Altman Plays the Game

Here we are at the end of the world with Emily Altman, a UCB comedian and Emmy-nominated writer for shows like Inside Amy Schumer, Difficult People, and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. As Josh discovers, she's well prepared for Trump's America – thanks to years of violent video games. Also: they're both from Philadelphia, so American dystopias are in their wheelhouse. Sit back and let the cool confidence with which this pair plan to face down our conservative hellscape wash over you.


Episode 75: Believing in Lauren Duca

Here's what THEY don't want you to know: Josh had a secret meeting with Lauren Duca, a freelance culture writer you've probably seen in Complex, Vice, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, Teen Vogue, and the Huffington Post. This is your exclusive source for their discussion – one the lame stream media doesn't think you should see. Have you ever wondered about 9/11? Lizard people? Our flat earth? Hitler? Well here's all the answers you could need and more, brought to you by celebrities you...


Episode 73: Leah Finnegan: I Am Marie Condo

This week Josh takes a moment to enjoy the view with Leah Finnegan, a senior editor at The Outline, formerly of Gawker and Cosmopolitan. Between the two of them, there's trends flying out everywhere. From Amazon sweatshirts to McDonald's to red wine, you'll leave this hour knowing more about what's in vogue then ever before. That is, if you're willing to wear Prada shoes, take HGH, get the Politico newsletter, and go Mega Vi.


Episode 72: TC Sottek's Corner of the Sky

This week Josh sits down with one of our favorite guests, managing editor of The Verge TC Sottek. Here are some tidbits we learn about TC: -He has never seen The Voice. -He doesn't like video games that incorrectly portray DC. -He cancelled his HBO. -He hates snowmobiles, mostly. -He's suspicious of your sea colony. How could you dare miss a conversation like this? Great your PSP Vita and your breakfast biscuits... because we're off to episode 72!

Josh sat down with Adrianne Jeffries, a senior editor at The Outline and former editor and reporter for Motherboard and The Verge, and what happened changed history forever. Do you know how insignificant your silly phone updates are to us, your children's children's children? They aren't even a blip in our history books! You're...
