About The Uncanny Robot Podcast

Humorous and surreal short stories and audio dramas read and performed by humans. Our stories aren't nonsensical gibberish as some might assume. We combine our storytelling skills with AI-conceived concepts to create tales with a story arc, fully-developed characters and satisfying endings. We feature human voice actors, not computer generated voices.

Written and performed by Bram Stoker Award Finalist and Clarion West 2015 Graduate Thersa Matsuura and audio engineer Rich Pav.

  • "Did I think I wanted to hear AI generated text read by humans? No...but I was wrong. I was entertained, humored, and maybe even a bit delighted."
  • "My new favorite podcast! I really hope it gets some attention. Some of the stories are so hilarious."
  • "I'm listening to the episode on Elvis at work right now and I'm literally falling over laughing! This is priceless! I have no idea how you are reading this with a serious voice."
  • "If you’re not listening & subscribed to Uncanny Robot, you should be. One of the most clever, entertaining podcasts to come along in a long time."
  • "My brother's response after listening to 'Elvis Lives' was "What on earth did I just listen to?" and then "...are there more like this?"

  • "When I first listened I didn't think I would like it. But I've grown to love the Asteroid Arnie/Annie stories. They are so funny and totally surreal. I was laughing out loud."
  • "An innovative and unique use of AI as art—reveals in turn the very not-human aspects of Artificial Intelligence, and the surprisingly or accidentally human aspects; the stories are oddly compelling, sometimes dreamlike, sometimes hilarious, sometimes just weird— uncanny, I suppose— it’s very enjoyable, and fascinating."
