792: McMillions, Vatican AI, and Blue’s Clues


Show Notes

Sarah was denied entry to a museum and we are fascinated by the reason. The birding community is psyched out of their mind about a bird that was thought to be extinct reappearing. Susie talks about the McMillions docuseries, which covers the McDonald’s Monopoly game scandal and how the people who “won” ended up being the losers. We learn about the Franciscan friar who became the Vatican’s “AI guy,” and what he is worried about for the future of these technologies and how we can prevent the worst case scenario. We discuss all the topics we’ve covered recently that have angered some of our listeners and respond to some of their arguments. Susie shares the wildest story about a man who made millions of dollars on the stock market after he eavesdropped on his wife’s work zoom calls, and the CRAZY layers to this story. We hear whether Sarah would report Susie for crimes. We learn some wild facts behind the color blue, why it’s more rare than you’d think, and why a lot of what we see is an illusion.
