Have you ever been reading an Autopian article and found yourself wishing you could hear the author yammering on about whatever they’re going on about, so you could bask in their voice, their cadence, their overall presence? Of course you haven’t; why would you subject yourself to that? My god, even just imagining it, well, it gives me chills. And I’m one of those authors. Think how I must feel every day.
This is why it’s so hard to tell you what I need to tell you right now: I was on two recent podcasts, and our Publisher Matt Hardigree was on one of those with me, and because federal law probably requires it (don’t check) I have to insist that you listen to both of these fine podcasts that I have soiled with my presence, loudly and lavishly. I’m sorry, but it’s the law.
The latest podcast is just me, on Computerworld’s Today in Tech podcast, where Keith Shaw talks to me about self-driving cars, and I get to go on and on about what I think about them, which is a wonderful luxury and privilege to have. If what I say is interesting to you, I do happen to have a book you could read, if you wanted. Just saying! I also talk about such melodramatic things as The Death of the Journey, and I’m pretty sure I snuck in the phrase “have a wank” in there, so see if you can find it.
The other podcast I was on, this time with Publisher Matt, was the Rocket podcast, which is a podcast about tech and fun geeky stuff, hosted by some friends like Christina Warren, Brianna Wu and Simone de Rochefort.
This time we got to talk about fun stuff like rocket-jet powered cars and Isaac Newton and cheating cars in racing and all sorts of fun car stuff. It’s fun! Look, you can confirm that empirically:
I know your time is valuable, and there are only so many podcasts you can listen to. I get that. And while I’m sorry that you’re definitely probably legally required to listen to both of these, likely at full volume in some public space or restaurant, bar, or coffee shop, ignoring the pleas of everyone around you just shut off that noise, dear god, please, turn it off, I nevertheless have to insist that you do, in fact, listen to these.
Thank you for your cooperation, and I hope there’s no need to involve the authorities.
