21 – Super Size Me (2004)

Just like McDonald’s french fries, this movie did not age well. It’s Morgan Spurlock’s 2004 film: Super Size Me.

We talk about how much has changed in 14 years since this film’s release; we talk about our own backgrounds with fast food & McDonald’s; we also talk about how a movie’s legacy can be better than the movie itself.

52 – Consciousness & Artificial Intelligence w. Kian Parseyan & Shawn Gray

Hoo-boy strap yourselves in for a mind-melting conversation with Kian Parseyan & Shawn Gray all about consciousness and AI (artificial intelligence).

We lay down the bedrock of what is thought, intelligence, and what makes up “consciousness”, as we refer to it. We discuss how AI differs and emulates human intelligence, as well as the special considerations we need to make regarding our creation of a Artificial Super Intelligence. We also talk a lot about equal parts dreams & statistical analysis. It’s a pretty loaded episode.

Make sure to check out more of Kian’s thoughts over on Medium or at his website! And go get Shawn’s book of poetry by emailing Shawn (shawn.gray@hotmail.ca) to get a copy!

20 – Sausage Party (2016)

What happens when food is alive? We checked out 2016’s Sausage Party to find out and it’s…very adult-orientated.

Sophie & Mitch talk about cartoon food, compartmentalized sentience, and the politics of orgies. We also cover the 2018 Pixar short Bao. Sufficed to say this is a full-sized episode.
