After finding an abandoned YesBot 5000 improv robot in the woods behind his house, improviser (and amateur roboticist) Chris Mead embarks on a mission to programme it to be the world's best improviser. Every week he speaks to a different improv guest, giving them the opportunity to input FIVE lines of code - FIVE rules, tips or behaviours that will make YesBot the perfect scene partner. At the end of the episode, when the programming is complete, he switches the robot on and stands back to watch the fireworks. Sometimes literally. YesBot. A podcast about improv and robotics. But mostly about improv.
