GenderBots with Julie Moore // Episode 1 Make Every Media

    • Arts

"Why gender a robot? What purpose does it serve? Does it help us form attachments? And what does that say about how we view and perform gender in our everyday human lives?"

These are all questions raised in this podcast series by long-time collaborator and noted cyborg clown, Julie Moore. We've been recording conversations about gender representation in robots since March of 2021 -- sometimes privately over Zoom or an app called "Marco Polo," sometimes live-streamed publicly over Twitch -- and we can't wait to start sharing our research with you!

This of course includes a deep-dive on the entire Terminator franchise (all 6 movies at least), which is currently being edited. But what we're sharing with you today is a much-toiled-over "final edit" of our VERY FIRST CONVERSATION about this subject, the conversation that sparked over a year's worth of research, speculation, spreadsheets, charts & graphs, and binges & streams.
