Dog Buttons and Flying.. Cars?

Bunny the dog has 5 million Tik Tok followers and an array of buttons that let’s her talk to them. By pressing a button, she can construct rudimentary sentences that her owner believes constitutes a sophisticated understanding of language. Anthony and Jeff discuss the research into Bunny and other animals, and whether this technique might be used to unlock communication in pets. Then, with over a dozen companies actively working on vertical take off and landing vehicles, is the flying car future actually happening? Jeff and Anthony take a look at the current state of personal air transportation.
