I heard this on the radio the other day and kept trying to not figure this out today.

It's supposed to be Do Andriods Dream of Electric Sheep, and it is a story by Phillip K. Dick, a famous Sci Fi writer.

Basically, if you ever saw the movie Blade Runner, then that is the story...

Thank you Rose of Sharon! You are right and yeah, I saw Blade Runner many moons ago.

But this interview was with a robot ethicist or something (will have to look that up) and he threw out this sentence and it's screwing me up. I think I know what book I want to read next! Thanks!!!

Will post an update if I can find out the program, interview, interviewee etc.

Appreciate both of you responding!

It was just brought to my attention that when you shear mechanical sheep, you get steel wool.

This whole thing is spinning my gears.

Prime video had a show for 1 season based on his works. if you like Blade Runner, a few of the episods were pretty good.

You are something else Debbie1986! Thank you so much. This is a welcome distraction from trying to find the interview that started all this. I will very much enjoy watching!!!
