GWC Podcast #127

We wrap up the Will Smith arc with I, Robot. Highlights: we discuss the movie’s relation to the short stories, note the movie’s perfect blend of Smith one-liners and hardcore sci-fi, crack on Susan Calvin’s wardrobe, wonder how bad it would be if we had robot employees that would actually follow stupid corporate policies like holler greeting, gush over Smith’s workout regimen, speculate on what effect true humaniform robots would have on commerce and jobs, titter at Asimo busting his ass, state our fear of *very capable* robots over *intelligent* robots, take on the concept of exponentially-accelerating technology, remind listeners that all asses look good on a bike, and discuss the new Trek trailer. Next week’s fun Thanksgiving break flick: The Big Lebowski.
