Rise of the Machines

Rise of the MachinesBlendover Episode Eighty Five:

Andy Sorcini joins Blendover to announce to us all: the robots are coming! Dyson, the vacuum cleaner company, is now in robotics… Greg analyzes a study claiming that medical mistakes resulting in death could number up to 400,000 a year – and we investigate the assertion. Later, we learn what the big deal is about Flappy Bird, & have the latest news for The Avengers sequel!

BlendoveR is a fun, hard-hitting podcast where rules are regularly thrown out the window in favor of honest, open commentating opinions.  Presented by Greg Davies (cGt2099 from The-TrukstoP.com), and Terr Ciavarra (Media Nox from medianox.bandcamp.com), we stray on to any topic that presents itself or wanders off onto its own tangent.

…in plain sight…Blendover Episode Eighty Four:

Caers Mane returns and we pick up our last conversation on inequality – this time with particular reference to the USA. We follow up on the murder of Australian Chris Lane in Duncan, OK, and then discuss why CVS will stop selling cigarettes. Later, we catch up on Pussy Riot, as the band conveniently hit the stage in the US while Sochi is on – & we discuss the latest Star Wars news.
