Continuing their discussion of the new Spike Jonze love story, Her, hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon take on some prickly issues the film raises about reality and subjective experience.

If possible, is any of this likely to occur any time soon?

And perhaps the most fundamental question:

Tune in and explore!
