182: The Awkward Robot Survival Guide

September 17, 2017 at 6:45PM • 22 minutes • Wiki Entry

This awkward week Dachis-bot is joined by the synthetic versions of Lionel Gaiman and Margaret Bagelman, thanks to the amazing artificial intelligence and voice synthesis technologies of Lyrebird (although, after this, I'm sure they will have at least a few regrets). Visit to question our sanity!

Awkward Situation of the Week: The fact that this even can exist in the first place.

This Week's Questions:

  • Dora asks, "How do I get my vagina to stop hurting? It hurts a lot because I sat on a tire for too long."
  • Ingrid asks, "How do I paint my saxophone green so I can be a better lesbian youth?"
  • Anonymous asks, "I have shame because I want to have sex with a Bengal tiger. How do I reconcile such brutal fantasies?"
  • Brian asks, "My girlfriend took me to her estranged sister's wedding and I found out she might have molested a foster child. What should I do?"

Special Segment: Lionel reads from his memoirs and Margaret hosts a special news report

Final Thoughts: If you got even slightly aroused by Lionel's erotic story, please seek therapy!
