    All That Is South Melts Into Park ft. Josh Boerman

    All That Is South Melts Into Park ft. Josh Boerman

    Josh (@Boshj) from The Worst of All Possible Worlds joins the gang to discuss the Humane AI Pin's latest new feature (gets really hot), Lars Windhorst's latest personal update ("I am not on the run"), and the return of Nigel Farage to frontline politics. Then, for our main discussion - a hot new company that intends to be the Netflix of AI, but that so far is only able to make different iterations of South Park.Check out The Worst of All Possible Worlds here! https://worstpossible.world

    *PREVIEW* The Half Lives of Others

    *PREVIEW* The Half Lives of Others

    We continue to follow the election with stony faced horror, as the decision is put to the country: “which group of sociopathic bigots do you want to be in charge of pushing the nuclear button, which they have promised to push”? Then, a reading from the Tony Blair Institute on their plan to circumvent the need for democracy by creating a new, digital England entirely under their control.

    Fire Sale at the Accountability Store feat. Dan Davies

    Fire Sale at the Accountability Store feat. Dan Davies

    For this week’s free episode, we’re joined by returning guest and author Dan Davies, whose recent book “The Unaccountability Machine: Why Big Systems Make Terrible Decisions - and How The World Lost its Mind” inspired a discussion of bad AI getting used at the DWP, the post-1970s shareholder revolution, and an incident involving Dutch airport cargo handlers managing to somehow deliver a horrible fate to a box full of squirrels. We very much hope you enjoy.

    *PREVIEW* American Herstory X feat. Jathan Sadowski

    For this week's bonus, Jathan Sadowski of This Machine Kills podcast joins the gang to talk about the “new” generation of AI models announced by Google, OpenAI, Microsoft, and others - all of which seem to want to imitate the movie Her. The value proposition of this to a normal person is unclear.

    Shrimp Jesus the Redeemer feat. Jason Koebler

    Shrimp Jesus the Redeemer feat. Jason Koebler

    The cast joins guest Jason Koebler of 404 Media to discuss the recent downward spiral of Facebook, a platform currently being destroyed by AI and a total lack of content moderation that cannot admit the causes of its crisis because it, too, is dumping money into AI. And yet it is among the notionally most valuable companies on earth. But don’t worry—if you die, your account can be hacked and used to post spam bot comments on the worst art you’ve ever seen.

The future is trash

There is no god but Logan Paul, and Jake Paul is his messenger

Blackpill overdose

A bunch of failed comedians blame the whole world for their own misery.

There is some decent social critique in there somewhere but it is completely overwhelmed by the hosts cynicism to be of any use.

When the hosts get things wrong, they would not take responsibility and say — this is just a podcast.

A better use of time would be to read bloomberg reporting or something.

Wow

Just a great time to listen to how awful our techno planet is, blessed
