New Episode: Series 10, Episode 5: Droids and Replicants

Direct Download: GSN PODCAST: Dissecting Worlds Series 10, Episode 5: Droids and Replicants

Back from festive indulgences, Dissectingbots K33-R and M4-T take a look at the constructed creatures that inhabit science fiction worlds as servants and slaves – whether the world admits that or not. We talk about:

  • Droids in the Star Wars Universe (excluding The Force Awakens, so we’re spoiler free) and robots in general
  • Replicants in Blade Runner and other “biological” servants
  • Legal grey areas in growing your own humans (or sub-humans)
  • Emotional Distance and how easy society finds it to ignore real injustices, and how that applies to Droid/Replicant rights
  • …and more!

Keehar has a bumper-length bookshelf on period weaponry for all your time-travelling needs. Links to what he discusses are:
