They're into movies, toys and TV shows, comics and collecting and super heroes.  There's no end to the useless stuff they know, but don't call them GEEKS, they're just Regular Joes!

We like Robots. Frankly, who doesn’t. Robots have been a persistent presence in pop culture since Fritz Lang’s Metropolis (1927). What is the allure of these mechanical/artificial men, and women? Why do we so easily identify with these characters who often have more in common with a home appliance than the human race? What makes a good robot good and a bad robot terrifying? To answer these questions and many more the Regular Joes bring in robot maker Brian Mix and one-time Droid manufacturer Derryl DePriest. Note: we also run down the lengthy list of female androids ... because that’s a thing. There’s also a round of Robot Related Show, and Tell the usual Random Topics, as well first reactions to the Mandalorian Season 2 trailer ... which contains fully 100% less robots than the previous season’s trailer. Thanks for listening!
