Roboism is a show mostly about robots. We are exploring how artificial intelligence, machine learning, and digital assistants are affecting our culture. Come explore the humanity behind the bots that are quickly becoming a part of every day life. Hosted by Kathy Campbell and Alex Cox.
My Soul is Very Expensive
Kathy and Alex go meta on Meta's metaverse.
Kathy comforts Alex as they share their concerns (dread) around The Seattle Delivery Company turning into The Seattle Surveillance Company.
Something Something Sherlock Joke
Alex and Kathy explore the media circus around Elizabeth Holmes, Theranos, and black turtlenecks.
A Forklift That Can't Outrun Humans
Alex and Kathy watch in horror as exploitative capitalism is used to soothe a man's ego with an expensive mannequin.
Kathy is building a VERY big smart robot, and Alex wants to help.
The Bathroom is Australian
A guest co-host comes to assess the smart home situation in the Cox family apartment.
Yes you do want to learn about Robots!
I started tuning in after meeting Alex Cox at C2E2. I am not a tech person so I wrongly assumed this show wouldn't hold much interest, but was curious enough to try it out. That was over a year ago and I'm still a regular listener. Turns out I'm way more interested in robots than I thought :)
This show is a blast.
Roboism is a ton of fun. The hosts are great! One of the things I love about the show is that it's clear this is a topic they're both fascinated by, but they have very different takes on. That always makes for an interesting discussion. I was bummed out to see that the top review on ituens at present says that says this show and its hosts are sexist. Man, what? It's just two awesome ladies talking about robots. Check a mirror sometime.
