00:00:00 - Jetpacks may still be a dream, but robo-cars are coming to a road near you very soon. How will these cars perform when there's a life on the line? The Paleopals discuss the burgeoning field of robo-ethics based on an article in The New Yorker by Gary Marcus.
00:23:44 - Since the Paleopals don't usually record from a car, robotic or otherwise, it's safe for them to have a drink. Kelly's parents hooked her up with a Strongbow cider. Patrick get's poetic with New Holland Brewing's oatmeal stout The Poet. And Ryan mixed up an Aged to Perfection cocktail, which Patrick compares to salad dressing.
00:29:17 - This week in Trailer Trash Talk the Paleopals try to wrap their heads around Jeff Syke's suggested preview but likely only serve to spoil the finally released John Dies at the End.
01:06:49 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like robotic cars, not to be trusted. Jesse W. wants to know Kelly's opinion on kleptoparasites: are they brilliant or lazy? YOU DECIDE! Patrick promotes Jordan Gledhill's webcomic, rm - Rf /, who featured a certain cryptid in it's most recent comic. And Alexis H. used the only resources at her disposal, markers, to craft some holiday inspired Brachiolopes to send to Ryan.
