Episode 197 of 361 episodes

Roboticists have created an automaton with the appearance and behavior of legendary science fiction author, Phillip K. Dick.

And recently, it told one interviewer it would eventually put humans in a "People Zoo", Anthony and Jeff find this information alarming, but oddly exciting.
