Robo calls make advances

The hated robo call is making advances.

Make sure to try to listen to the Thursday PhilCast in the first half hour to hear an audio clip I have of the latest trick companies are using with these robo calls.

The robot voice is now so high-tech that it is programmed to almost sound human, actually responding to your questions!

How do they do this stuff?

A reporter found out about it and recorded a 'conversation' with the robot trying to sell him something...even denying she was a robot!

Yikes.

We'll discuss and you can hear it for yourself today on the show.
