Aud // rey ,

One of the best AI podcasts ever.

I'm generally pretty wary of AI "ethics" because the discourse is so heavily skewed towards technocratic notions of "fairness" and "transparency" and often centers white men. I also guard my podcast feed against shows I'll never listen to. The Radical AI Podcast was a risk for both of these reasons, but definitely worth it.

They know what's up – they focus on critical discussions that need to happen in this space, and interview folks who are truly doing cutting-edge research in AI – and don't focus solely on the technical aspects or overly-optimistic projections of "how AI will save us." Jess and Dylan ask thought-provoking questions and do what every good interviewer should – know when to take up space and when *not* to.

It's a good podcast. You should listen to it.
