Introducing Shell Game, a Strange and Immersive AI Experiment

A new podcast from Evan Ratliff

Shell Game is a new show, about things that are not what they appear. For the first season, I’ve spent the last six months finding out what would happen if I made a digital replica of myself and turned it loose in the world. This is the story of the wild ride that followed, as I attempted to replace myself… before someone else could replace me.

Here’s a preview of what’s to come. First episode July 9.

Thanks for signing on with us, even before you knew what it was!

If this trailer has you on the edge of your seat, please spread the word! We’re fully independent and self-funded, so your support makes episodes.

Thanks,

Evan

A podcast about things that are not what they seem, hosted by journalist Evan Ratliff. In Season One, that thing is Evan’s voice. By creating a voice clone and hooking it up to an AI chatbot, Evan set out to discover what happens when you try to take control of the very technology that threatens to replace you.
Over the course of six episodes, Evan’s voice agents talk to spammers and scammers, to Evan’s friends and family, to colleagues and sources, to other AIs, and even to a therapist—all to better understand what AI voice is able to do, what it can't yet do, and what to expect from a future in which more and more of the people we encounter in the world aren’t real.
