In the December edition of our podcast, we discuss the role of androids in science fiction and how they reflect the human condition. Examples from Westworld, Star Trek, Agents of SHIELD, Battlestar Galactica, Humans, and many more are used to illustrate the themes of consciousness and sentience (see also 11 Androids on Television).

Show topics this month include The Librarians on TNT, which recently began its third season with more Noah Wyle and an added protagonist in Vanessa Williams, and The Man in the High Castle on Amazon Prime, which drops its second season of 10 episodes on December 16 (see also spoiler-free review).

Our interview segment this week is with actor Eric McCormack and producer Brad Wright from Travelers on Netflix, which has its debut on Netflix on December 23.
