Listen to DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF MINIMUM WAGE?50:149 October 2023

Flick Ford is joined by feminist techno science researcher Thao Phan and Australian screenwriter Clem Bastow. The three discuss a wide range of topics including parallels between The Writers Guild strike of America and the ongoing strikes occurring at a number of universities in Australia, including Monash University, the University of Melbourne, and more. Plus, the ongoing threat of AI's impact; specifically in the arts and film industries, and how it will affect the future of artistic labour. They conclude the episode by humoring Gareth Edward's messy, confused and mildly received release THE CREATOR (2023).
