Show 57 – First broadcast 3rd July 2009
I am on holiday this week- sort of. I have gone to investigate the old Islamic empire in Spain. I will be back in two weeks to bring you some new programmes. In the meantime I have re-edited some previous interviews that I found really interesting.
Professor Chris Cooper from the Univesity of Essex has made blood his life’s work, from the real to the artificial. If there is anything that you wanted to know about blood, this would be the man to ask. I talk to him about the very nature of blood – what is it and why is it different from sap? We talk about artificial blood, blue blood and even vampires.
A Love Machine?
For this interview I travelled to Manhattan to the Grand Central Station Oyster Bar to meet up with Dr Peter Asaro of Rutger’s University to talk about his documentary Love Machine about machines that you may fall in love with. Over a few beers, I asked Peter if he could love a robot and if he thought that a robot could ever fall in love with a human.
