Latest Episode- AI reading Abstracts

I do not like this format.
1. AI readings are easy to block out. I’m guessing because they are used for mandatory “learning modules”, like HIPPA, that I have been trained my brain to ignore that tone. As I was listening and driving I realized I hadn’t heard what the podcast was saying.
2. Just reading the abstract is not helpful or entertaining. It is the discussion surrounding the idea (good or bad) that holds my interest. I can read the abstracts, or scan for what interests me most.
