Top Episodes This Week
This show is one of the best produced podcast I have come across in a while. We are in the AI revolution but we are just sleepwalking towards it.
This is a really great episode and a relatively gentle introduction to Darknet Diaries for anyone who has never listened before.
Truth to Power
A deep dive into “deep fakes”. But also a look into how the same tech can be used for good. Enjoyed hearing more about Lyrebird (AI voice clone tech) that was acquired by Andrew Mason’s Descript (podcast audio editing tool). Also that first bit where the host trolls were cousin was 🤣🤣🤣
Chocolate Chicken Chicken Cake
One of my favourite podcast episodes of all time. A favorite party question of mine is: "If the world was going to implode and all the books in the world are going to burn down, would you save the Shakespeares (arts) or the Newtons (science)?" I'm not going to tell you the answer, but this episode really flipped how I thought about this! Also, the origins of the episode title is hilarious. I also won't spoil that for you.
The teens tricking Instagram
The amazing inventiveness of teenagers. Also known as you learn something new every day on matters relates to protecting one’s privacy.
