This started as a mini-podcast where human robot John Siracusa determined whether or not various robot-like things from both fact or fiction truly qualified (in his eyes) as “robots” in the classical sense (as opposed to autonomous devices, cyborgs, magical beings, etc.).
They don’t do that anymore, but the title stays the same. In fact, considering their most recent topics (is it a sandwich?, it is pizza?) a more fitting title would be “The Accidental Food Podcast.”
