This is not a great moment for the written word. A looming writer strike is poised to, well, strike Hollywood. VICE is shutting down Waypoint, a gaming outlet that stressed journalistic integrity over fanboy fawning. IDW announced massive layoffs and a questionable choice as their new CEO. And all this as the grim specter of AI threatens to replace human writers - hell, VentureBeat is already using it to help write and edit articles. Tony and Haygood discuss the present and future of authentic, human creative output!
