Sinopse

Away with words. Good riddance - no one reads anymore anyway. This is a verbal quest for immortality. Kristofer Velasquez is a writer, director, producer, teacher, and father who has chosen this podcast as a way to create a collection of musings - sometimes creatively written, other times just curiously spoken - that might outlive him. From original fiction to commentary on everything from horror and science fiction, to writing and creativity, to technology and philosophy. Maybe this is a way to speak to his children after he's gone. Maybe there's a way ... with words.

    Happy Halloween: The Winter Hollow 61-66

    Sabrina Storey may have a single buckshot lodged somewhere in her brain. That’s the only way to explain her memory loss and dangerous sleepwalking episodes after surviving a horrific shooting at her college. She may not know how she ended up in the hospital, but she knows that PTSD doesn’t include her nightmares directly affecting reality. Her recollections are like a jumbled pile of photographs. Her only companion is a broken camera that may hold clues to what happened. Ghostly visions somehow complete the puzzle of her history and the map of her destiny. And now she discovers she's responsible for a new life. Have her injuries severely damaged her mind? Or are her fugue states actually harbingers of the future? Her dreams are trying to tell her something, but what exactly? One of the school shooting suspects is at large and somehow she's involved. She's running from the memory, but there's someone - or something - coming after her. Hunted by her past. Haunted by her future. For Sabrina, remembering that one

    Away With Words: The Answer to the AI Puzzle

    07/10/2019 Duração: 18min

    If the Terminator or Westworld has taught us anything, it’s that we fail at time travel and cyborgs will always be so much cooler. But they also taught us that in all scenarios, people end up being pretty useless to a race of robots. So before Siri makes it to the 2020 election ballot, Kris shares some insight on the riddle of artificial intelligence. Make sure you’re wearing headphones so that AI folk like Alexa won’t hear this paradigm-destroying epiphany. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/vaudial/support

    Well, this is going to be awkward. Kris just found the solution our stalled human evolution in the face of the apocalyptic progression of technology and our regression of our collective #intellectual development … and it’s more awkward and longwinded than this sentence.
