In our final episode of 2017, we have a conversation about sexual assault and the role of friends, family, and the church with Pastor Heather Thomas. Historically, the Church hasn't been a place that cultivated conversations about sexual assault and abuse.

Somehow the machines develop a conscious and the will to act, and for whatever reason, they decide that humans are a threat and in the case of the Matrix a resource.
