this changes nothing, i am still dead inside

There's also 10k posts, which is Hussein and Pheobe talking about internet stuff, but like with Masters of our Domain it's usually funniest when they're just doing the intro riffing or pointing and laughing about funny twitter stuff. A lot of the time when they get stuck into the main focus of the episode it kind of drifts and I realise my attention has wandered.

Depends if you want funny or interesting I guess. TF usually maintains a decent balance between the two. I still think KJB is probably my favourite extended universe podcast, but anything with Milo on usually slaps.

I might subscribe to the MoD patreon just for the 9/11 script reading and the Prince of Thieves episode.

Is it just me, or does it sound sort of like they just created their own, seperate trashfuture?

New technology podcast, Human Error, launches on BBC Sounds

Presented by comedian Olga Koch and journalist Hussein Kesvani, Human Error podcast will get listeners up to speed with the state of technology today while drawing upon the knowledge of relevant experts.

Published: 2:00 pm, 21 July 2021
Updated: 1:59 pm, 21 July 2021

Hussein and Olga will explore the biggest, most interesting and surprising tech stories as well as examining the unforeseen effects technological breakthroughs have had on communities across the world.

Human Error will take a deep dive into the tech world, covering topics such as; the world of bio-hacking, hate speech within gaming culture, the job of online moderators, the future and ethics of facial recognition software, the ways in which technology improves our health, wars taking place online rather than with violence, online anonymity and technology and the environment.

Olga says: “Oftentimes tech entrepreneurs spend a lot of time wondering whether or not they could, without stopping to think if they should. In Human Error, Hussein Kesvani, the Jeff Goldblum of the podcasting world, and I, the Jeff Goldblum of the stand-up circuit, finally stop to ask if they should. I sincerely hope listeners will enjoy our podcast as it answers hard-hitting questions like, what happens if you wi-fi enable your dog?”

Hussein says: “Human Error is a show about the weird, hilarious and unexpected effects of the technology we use, abuse and abandon in our everyday lives, and what it tells us about how we live as a society. If you find yourself up at night asking, ‘What happened to Microsoft Clippy?’ and ‘Will my Bluetooth Hoover turn on me in my sleep?’ It’s a must-listen.”

Human Error is a Daddy’s SuperYacht Production for BBC Sounds.

Human Error trailer is available to listen to here.

Episode 1 of Human Error will be available on BBC Sounds from Wednesday 28 July.

Same, but the Cars 2 episode where they were going off on the bits about "So if there is a car Pope who wears a crucifix, that means there was a car Jesus... And a car inquisition."

I would not be surprised to find this mentioned on the next free one.

10k is an odd one, because they do make good analysis of posting, but the Owen Jones episode was deeply weird because they kept asking questions and then going on huge, long answers themselves and barely involving Jones at all.

Like so many things in life, improv is fine if it's done well. But the vast bulk of it is not done well and is absolutely self-indulgent and embarrassing, and that seems to be what they're mocking.

Milo also seems to hate it with a passion and has occasionally brought it up on trashfuture.
