The world around us is an amazing place, filled with beauty… And with science. But let’s face it, sometimes the science can be so confusing that it takes a PhD to understand it. Well, you’re in luck. I just happen to have a PhD. Come and take a seat. Perhaps I can explain the world around us in a way we all can understand.
Welcome to Conversations in Science. I’m Dr Judy L Mohr.
Call me Doc.

I swear have I have not been on the eggnog, but I know that Santa can make it around the world to deliver all the presents to the good little boys and girls. Although, I’m not sure that Jessie was entirely convinced. Join me and I try to convince Jessie Sanders (and a special guest) about the science behind my latest Christmas thoughts.
When I hijacked Jessie’s POV, I spoke about Sophia, the robot that was granted citizenship of Saudi Arabia. There was a lot of discussion about various ethical issues surrounding robots. I knew right away it was time to phone a friend.
On this month’s episode of Conversations in Science, Jessie and I had a blast talking with Sean Welsh, who is at the forefront of this new field of science that crosses into philosophy. The field is known as Robot Ethics.
