"Have a Nice Future is a new podcast from WIRED, where each week, Wired’s Senior Writer Lauren Goode & Journalist Gideon Lichfield speak with the top technologists, thinkers, and creators who are shaping this future we’re racing into. Every episode, we’ll ask each guest—and ourselves—the same question: Is this the future we want? And if not, where do we go from here?"
"This is a blog about AI futurism and AI alignment. It's edited by Ajeya Cotra, and written primarily by her and Kelsey Piper (although we may solicit guest posts in the future)." These podcast episodes are AI-Generated Audio renderings of this version of the blog posts.
"Ajeya leads Open Phil’s grantmaking on technical research that could help to clarify and reduce catastrophic risks from advanced AI. As part of this role, Ajeya conducts analysis on threat models (ways that advanced AI could cause catastrophic harm) and technical agendas (technical work that may help to address these threat models)."
"Kelsey Piper is a senior writer at Future Perfect, Vox’s effective-altruism-inspired section on the world’s biggest challenges.

"Possible is a new podcast that sketches out the brightest version of the future—and what it will take to get there. Most of all, it asks: what if, in the future, everything breaks humanity's way? Hosted by Reid Hoffman and Aria Finger, each episode features an interview with a visionary from a different field: climate science, media, criminal justice, and more. The conversation also features another kind of guest: GPT-4, OpenAI’s latest and most powerful language model to date. Each episode has a companion story, generated by GPT-4, which will serve as a jumping-off point for a hopeful, speculative discussion about what humanity could possibly get right if we leverage technology—and our collective effort—effectively."
