"Narrator James Fouhey gives life and heart to a group of misfit robots on a mission to save themselves from the evil AI corporation "uniMIND." Cog (whose name is short for "cognitive development") is a robot who looks and acts remarkably human. After an accident leaves him damaged, Cog wakes up in a lab surrounded by scientists who want to remove his brain. With the help of four robot accomplices, Cog escapes and embarks upon a funny, action-packed adventure to find the human engineer who built him. Fouhey creates a variety of distinct robot and human voices. Most memorable is Cog's, whose voice is na•vetŽ that makes him sympathetic and endearing. S.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
