    Artificial Intelligence - was this podcast written by a chatbot?

    It's a challenge for a chatbot and a challenge for you too. 
    Tom was too tired to write the latest podcast so he asked ChatGTP to do it instead.  Your challenge is to see if you really think it was possible for a chatbot to create this podcast.
    And of course to practice your listening skills in the company of VivaLing.
