    High Maintenance

    High Maintenance

    Author S.A. Chant joins us again to discuss what it's like to write a story about robots. How does the perspective of the point-of-view character change the way we experience science fiction? What does representation mean in a genre full of non-human characters? And where can trans science fiction go from here?

    The Matrix

    The Matrix

    Author S.A. Chant joins Demetria to talk about the conversation about The Matrix when it first came out in 1999—and how that conversation changed when the movie's directors came out as trans. What's it like to rewatch a movie that famously defied easy interpretation two decades after its release?
    (Note: This episode is not particularly graphic, but I've marked it as explicit just in case because it does contain some discussion of sexual subjects like the movie's nods to kink culture.)

    Metropolis

    Metropolis

    What on earth was Fritz Lang trying to say when he released a film about one very sexy robot in 1927? Isaac Meyer joins us to talk about a movie so politically confusing that its own creators couldn't agree on the real meaning of its message.

Each episode, we'll be asking three crucial questions about a robot: What purpose do they serve in the story? Does the story work? And most importantly, how kissable is that robot?
