You requested, and requested, and requested, and we finally got there! Ex Machina, one of the strongest horror sci-fi movies to come out in the past decade. There is so much wonderful content to this movie we're spreading it out over two episodes. For this first one, we focus on the thought experiment of Mary in the colorless room, and how it relates to the problem of consciousness for AI that we first addressed in episodes 4 and 5 (which we strongly recommend you re-listen to if you). And then after dark, of course, there's sexy time talk.
