Following an insane period of time without an episode, Mike and Patrick return to talk about how only three hundred and fifty U.S. dollars and a couple of piercings can turn you into a bona-fide cyborg, and what implications that may have. Touching on self-driving cars, what it means to have a sense, and how hackers will stop your heart, they examine the important question of becoming a cyborg and whether it is all downhill from there.
