I love this short audio drama on what happens if an "8 ball" decides what we should do with our life. What if something told us how happy we are for everything we do before we do it? Will we be happier or...?

Fantastic drama exploring the dangers of outsourcing your decision making to a device which knows how satisfying something will be to you. Really makes you think - excellent stuff!

This was a fun episode to listen to... A "decider" toy of sorts. It's a novel idea, but it also makes you think about the downside of giving up control of your own choices to a computer program.

@shelfaddiction This episode was so much fun! Did not expect it. Also, why would anyone turn down a job where you just make listicles of delicious food in bowls all day?!? 🍜 Sheesh! 🤣

@shelfaddiction I also loved how they masterfully inserted the bit on how when she asks the decider whether she wants to be a professional writer, it says 100%, but when it comes to all the steps to go there, it gave low %s. It’s like saying how the destination is the ultimate desire and dream, but the gruelling unpleasant steps in between are also a necessary part of the journey. So simple, but power few seconds in the story.

@mm Nice. I hadn't noticed that until you mentioned it. Very true. Basically nothing worth having comes easy.
