  • So glad VergeCast did the emergency show for OpenAI

    It’s been a absolute craze blaze over the last 96 hours and my guys broke it down in an hour and some change. This was the absolute crazy move by the board. Like the ruthlessness and villain ice coldness to do it so quick! 2023 and AI setting up a very wild outlook for 2024. Thanks Verge!

  • Off-putting hosts

    I find the hosts obnoxious. Alex isn’t quite as annoying, except she needs to contribute more original (and useful) comments rather than throwing in “jokes,” and reacting/responding to what the other hosts say - the other hosts are already overly full of themselves.
