For the first time in human history, a self-driving car killed a pedestrian. But who’s really at fault? If the person behind the wheel takes the fall, suddenly we are living in a world where one can go to jail for the crimes of an AI.
This non-fiction story is told within the frame of a sci-fi radio serial, in which we meet Cass and Icarus, who discover this reportage in the future.
This is episode 01 of BELLWETHER, a podcast of speculative journalism from Sam Greenspan.
