Season 2, Episode 4

AI and Comedy with Ange Lavoipierre

Recorded live at Sappho Books, Sydney.

This episode, I talk to Ange Lavoipierre. She is a journalist and comedian, and I want to talk to her about AI, dystopias, and comedy. Ange has been a journalist since age 19, when she joined the ABC newsroom, and started covering night shifts and breaking stories. Fast forward 15 years to this summer, Ange became national technology reporter, and she is deep in the rabbit hole of AI news. She is also a stand-up comedy performer, as a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe.

The three influential texts that Ange chose were:

  • Harrow, Joy Williams

  • Lost, Annie Ernaux

  • Gilead, Marilyn Robinson
