our final invention:

ai with james barat

It seems like everyone these days is talking about artificial intelligence, but James Barrat literally wrote the book on it. His book "Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence and the End of the Human Era" describes the potential dangers of humans developing artificial intelligence that could eclipse that of humans. Bill Gates, Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking, just to name a few, have all warned of these dangers.

Digital Marketing

with Joe kalis

 

If you have a band, podcast, product, or platform, you probably know that digital marketing is important, but it certainly isn't simple. It's something this podcast, The BadChristian Podcast, and Emery have struggled to do well, and largely haven't done. Today I thought I'd have a conversation on air with a new acquaintance, Joe Kalis. So sit in as I ask questions and try to learn some better techniques and habits.
