This was a recently publishee short essay, but ai enjoyed the Text-to-Speech audio voice Peter on www.naturalreaders.com, which I showed in class tonight, so I thought I'd have Peter read this essay for your audio pleasure.
This episode begins with an audio version of "Alexa is Killing Us" a story I wrote recently for Splice Today, about humans, technology, politics and psychology. It continues with a reflection on my birthday and parenting and pre-school futures. It concludes with two instrumental guitar tracks. Enjoy.
This episode is a compilation of 9 previously published episodes, and several musical interludes. If you enjoy this, please consider my book of collected poems: The Spirit In: Poems from the First Year of Fatherhood. $4 e-book, $10 paperback.
