This week, Cher and James put on their best robot voices with Roboism hosts, Alex and Savannah. Topics include: robots, feminism, education, Star Wars, and white tech bros comparing themselves to activists. In Open Mic, we determine what makes a robot, and what makes an appliance. Lastly, in Open Call, Savannah shouts out a Disney Channel Original Movie, Alex recommends Sleep Aid apps, James has a new favorite Snapchat page, and Cher is vibing a West Coast girl group.
