My new favorite podcast!

I love hearing all sides of an issue, and this podcast ffers just that. Rather than presenting a single point of view and arguing for it, Ms. Fake brings us cutting edge ideas from the frontiers of technology and then explores the pros, cons, opportuities and challenges. This kind of thoughtful debate is a a gift to the entreprenuers developing these ideas, and for me, it's been a fantastic source of provactive, thoughtful dinner table conversation for our family - for example,the episode on lab-cultured meat sparked a lively discussion between our kids who who are both omnivorous and vegetarian, and the episode on the Woebot AI therapist sparked great conversation around online/offline/bot-based interactions. I'm looking forard to more episodes- my only wish is that we could send in questions about the topics, as they are so interesting!
