The Spectacle Podcast: From Organic Stupidity To Artificial Intelligence

In this week’s episode of The Spectacle Podcast, American Spectator publisher Melissa Mackenzie and RVIVR.com and TheHayride.com publisher Scott McKay have some big issues to discuss.

There’s the ouster of Tucker Carlson at Fox News and what that’s going to do not just to his career – they discuss Carlson’s next steps – but Fox News, the cable news business and even corporate media.

There’s Joe Biden’s announcement that he’ll be running for re-election in 2024, something which isn’t much of a surprise but does give rise to conversation and speculation – and you know Melissa and Scott aren’t bashful in that regard.

And there’s the continuing rise of artificial intelligence as a factor in our economy and our lives, a topic on which Melissa and Scott roam about the landscape quite a bit in a very entertaining show.
