Episode 39: Barry Kirwan – Aliens, AI, and Arriving Late to the Party

In this episode, I chat with Barry Kirwan about the psychological effects of the pandemic, the experience of writing in the early hours of the morning, and predicting existential threats. We also discuss aliens (first contact and arriving too late into the galactic community), what Artificial Intelligence does and does not mean, and the demotion of robots. As usual, there’s also The Lightning Round and The Big Questions.

Books of his we discuss are: The Eden Paradox Quadrilogy, The Children of the Eye Trilogy
