This week we meet with new Gradcast host and our guest Susan Anthony. She's been and goes from time to time to the arctic to find and study how spiders up there handle the cold.
This week we talk to Mark Filipowich and his research into cyberpunk and steampunk literature. He looks into how these sub-genres of science fiction reflect ideas about our relationship with machines.

This week, our bold heroes talk to FIMS student Alan Del Pino. He's looking at the value of intellectual labour, and its potential problems in a future with products like Google Drive.
