Alright lads, this week I'm diving into Pamela and Armando's love of Science Fiction to create a list of their favourite movie robots.
Revisiting the likes of Blade Runner, Terminator, The Matrix and Star Trek, we discuss a number of iconic AI systems and underrated androids. Whether it’s the terrifying, unrelenting nature of The Borg or the endearing qualities of R2D2, we dig into the wiring of some truly classic mechanical characters.
Immersing ourselves deeper, we compare and contrast human controlled machines with self aware bots. Discuss human integration with technology and ask the big question, what exactly is a robot?

DIMED OUT PODCAST – EPISODE 17: THE ISLE OF MAN BEAR
Through the power of Zoom I link up with Pamela and Armando on the Isle of Man to talk about the islands response to Corona Virus and what it’s now like being free of Covid 19. We also question the existence of Bigfoot/Manbear. Celebrate the brilliance of teaspoons. Deliberate the pros and cons of living in different time periods and the value of traditions.
