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?

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