ChatGPT marked its first birthday on Nov. 30 with OpenAI entering a whole new era filled with familiar faces and few new ones. Brian and Sarah keep things casual on this episode, welcoming friend of (and off) the pod Mason Del Rio, a data scientist and analyst with media production experience, to discuss ChatGPT's impact in its first year. [Editor’s note: Mason also helped us with editing this episode, which we greatly appreciate.]

For coders, creatives, and writers, the online world is increasingly saturated with AI-powered content. What’s going to happen next in 2024, and what will it mean for the workforce? All of this and more are on the table, along with a suspenseful edition of "Two truths and l’AI." Find out if Sarah finally cracked Brian’s strategy once and for all.
