M3GAN is Predictive Programming. MOVIE REVIEW

Listen to the podcast here.   YouTube version I watched the new Blumhouse horror movie Megan and found it eye-opening.   Conspiracy theorists talk about how movies can be predictive programming, and I felt the same after leaving the theater.  I see a future where we all use technology similar to Megan.   An android or robot that monitors you, knows what you like, can tell you what you want to hear, and gently discipline you.   Gives updates on your health and sells goods marketed explicitly to you.   How far are we now with virtual assistants like Siri, Alexa, or our smartphones and smartwatches?
