Tristan and Aza will treat your attention with care as ...

Think risk is boring? Let Risktory blow your mind. New episodes are released every Monday, 6:30am, US Eastern Time.

AXRP (pronounced axe-urp) is the AI X-risk Research Podcast where I, Daniel Filan, have conversations with researchers about their papers.

You can visit the website and read transcripts at axrp.net.
