My good friend of 10 years, priest, exorcist, philosopher and theologian Fr Chad Ripperger joins us to discuss the benefits and potential dangers of Artificial Intelligence. I am also joined by my best friend, Eric Egan, as co-host for this episode (in hind-sight, we realized it would have been better if he had been a co-guest rather than co-host). He has a MS in Computer Science and is constantly studying the field of AI. This episode was originally filmed on Oct 5, 2023. (No, I am not trying to copy or compete with Matt Fradd's "Pint's With Aquinas" so much as being inspired by him and having fun with the name. Matt is, however, my favorite Catholic podcaster and I admire his work... and St Augustine... and pipes and cigars... and really good beer.)
To see the short film that Eric and I recently made that deals with A.I. and abortion, visit Eric's website (https://www.trh.media) and enter your email to sign up for the newsletter. Eric will send you an email with a private link for viewing the film. As it is currently being submitted to film festivals, we cannot currently share it publicly.
