Premium Episode 33: Death to All Digital Humans (Unlocked)

Up until now, for different reasons, we’ve avoided talking about both Israel and AI. We haven’t talked about the ongoing Palestinian genocide because there are much better voices to listen to than us to help you understand the extent of the horror in Gaza. We haven’t talked about the AI bubble because arguing with marketers and hypemen is boring.

The feverish pace that Democrats in the House and Senate have been passing bills for military aid to Israel while most of their party is against it might just bring about a reckoning. And NVIDIA’s rocketing up to become the third most valuable company in the world should be all the proof needed that the AI bubble won’t stop until it swallows us all.
