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.
Children Need to Be Warned
Alex and Kathy discuss broken fingers, folding, and a fictosexual man in love with a hologram.
Alex and Kathy might want robots to have rights and bodily autonomy, but it would be nice if humans had it as well.
I Want the Chicken Nuggets
Alex and Kathy are convinced robots aren't coming to take our jobs...but they SHOULD be.
Monday Morning Political Consultant
Webster's dictionary defines "muskrat" as "an aquatic rodent of the U.S. and Canada with a long scaly laterally compressed tail, webbed hind feet, dark glossy brown fur and Twitter's agent of chaos.
Tech Isn't Forgiving
Alex and Kathy go on Display.
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.
