(Reminder: all of the podcast episodes are now in the Kruiser Kabana section of our shiny new podcast page. I will be doing little teaser blurbs here and/or in the Morning Briefing for each new episode.)
I have frequently explored my love/fear relationship with the pace of technology in the 21st century, most recently in a VIP column last month. After just a few days of playing around with ChatGPT (yeah, I was late to the party), I’ve got nothing but love. Screw the pod bay doors and your overwhelming creepiness, HAL — I’m all-in.
In this episode I’m exploring what I think AI will be able to do for me as a writer. There’s a lot of potential, and I’m going to be plunging headlong into experimentation with it for the next several months. Just for kicks, I asked ChatGPT to write me a quick intro poem for the podcast. Here’s what it came up with:
The Kruiser Kabana show is one of a kind,
With guests and topics that blow your mind.
A mix of humor and knowledge, it’s quite a feat,
An entertaining hour that can’t be beat.
So if you’re looking for a podcast to try,
One that will make you laugh and not sigh,
Give the Kruiser Kabana a listen, my friend,
You won’t regret it, it’s a fantastic bend.
It’s not Shakespeare, but it’ll do for an unpaid “staff writer.” This is something that I have been reading a lot about in recent years, and this probably won’t be the last time I write about it. Maybe I’ll chronicle my experiments with it.
Or maybe I’ll have it chronicle my experiments with it.
