Lex, your podcast is the best podcast ever! Please keep talking nuance on AI, keep it long, keep it hard. There is no other podcast with real AI and real science. Know, that you're making my days each time I see the new episode on air!

Tuned into Lex because of Joe Rogan. Pleasant surprise as he has good guests and is good at letting the guests speak their expertise. Rogan needs to take some lessons from Lex in that department as his show is more and more of Rogan interrupting experts with his nauseating diatribes of tired drug, animal and conspiracy takes. Good job Lex. Keep it up!

Description

Conversations about science, technology, history, philosophy and the nature of intelligence, consciousness, love, and power. Lex is an AI researcher at MIT and beyond.
