Listen and comply with ‘Hard Fork’
Apple | Spotify | Stitcher | Amazon | Google
A track that includes A.I.-generated variations of Drake and the Weeknd went viral — earlier than being taken down by streaming providers. Is censorship of A.I.-generated songs the best way ahead? Or can singers profit from artificial voices, as some artists like Grimes are suggesting?
Then, HatGPT: Kevin and Casey pull headlines out of a hat and generate their very own takes on the information.
And Ben Smith, the previous BuzzFeed News editor, discusses the top of the 2010s digital media period.
“Hard Fork” is hosted by Kevin Roose and Casey Newton and produced by Davis Land and Rachel Cohn. The present is edited by Paula Szuchman and Jen Poyant. Engineering by Alyssa Moxley and unique music by Dan Powell, Elisheba Ittoop, Marion Lozano, Sophia Lanman and Rowan Niemisto. Fact-checking by Caitlin Love.
