I Only Love Robots is a podcast about the robots we love (or love to hate) in fiction and real life. Demetria Spinrad hosts this show with weekly guests.

Each episode, we’ll be asking three crucial questions about a robot: What purpose do they serve in the story? Does the story work? And most importantly, how kissable is that robot?

High Maintenance

High Maintenance

Author S.A. Chant joins us again to discuss what it’s like to write a story about robots. How does the perspective of the point-of-view character change the way we experience science fiction? What does representation mean in a genre full of non-human characters? And where can trans science fiction go from here?

The Matrix

The Matrix

Author S.A. Chant joins Demetria to talk about the conversation about The Matrix when it first came out in 1999—and how that conversation changed when the movie’s directors came out as trans. What’s it like to rewatch a movie that famously defied easy interpretation two decades after its release?

Metropolis

Metropolis

Isaac Meyer joins us to discuss Metropolis, a 1927 German film directed by Fritz Lang.
