“Automation Day”

Gotta love NPR’s “1A” program. Good stuff today. “Happy May Day” by the way.

PRX’s “This American Life”
615: “The Beginning of Now”

The ‘Populist Wave’ Trump rode in on, its origins in working-class blue-collar America, Washington, D.C.’s inability to explain what it does and why, economics, automation, and the tide of History. Yay.

NPR’s “Studio360”
“Handmaid in America”

No robots, but class-warfare sci-fi, flirting with genetics.

I want to see “The Handmaid’s Tale”.
Also wanting to rewatch “Orphan Black”, the modern “Battlestar Galactica”, “Gattaca”, “Elysium”,”Ex Machina”, “CHAPPiE”, and scoop up “Humans” and “Black Mirror” while I’m at it…
