KMO talks with computer scientist (and Jepordy! champion) Roger Craig about the various approaches to and methods behind contemporary uses of artificial neural networks. It gets pretty crunchy at time for a general audience, but there's fun banter waiting on the far side. Gambate!
581: Erratic & Dramatic

KMO talks with Josh Slocum about what it means to live in a Cluster B world. On his show, the Disaffected Podcast, Josh cites example after example of how the political left has succumbed to the rule of narcissists, both grandiose and covert, who have imposed an irrational order upon their faction in which the loudest and most histrionic actors rule through intimidation, accusation and the sheer force of their emotional intensity. In a conversation like this, there is no avoiding a discussion of the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard defamation trial.

KMO welcomes drug writer and scientist, Lex Pelger, back to the program to talk about France, podcasting, UFOs, the supernormal, and the diminishing returns of psychedelics. KMO and Lex share their evolving approaches to reading and keeping books. Do not call up what you can't put down.

Fresh back from promoting the GEBB comic at EarthX 2022 in Dallas, Texas, KMO returns to the Big Room of the C-Realm Podcast with a conversation recorded on the expo floor with Dave Gardener, the host and producer of the GrowthBusters Podcast. Dave spells out the case against growth, and KMO provides a bit of skeptical pushback to help Dave shore up his arguments.
Later, we hear from Anna Haskell and Slava Borisov, the founders of Padverb, a service that helps podcasters find great guests for their programs. KMO will soon be hosting the Padverb Podcast which should come as a pleasant surprise for those who wish that he'd put out more free podcasts.
