This week's episode is all about videogames' artsy, cool, well-dressed younger sibling: creative technology. We're joined by Nicole He, one of the finest in the space today, whose works include a mind-reading Tinder-swipebot, a voice-activated game that parodies CSI "zoom and enhance" sequences, and an AI that interviewed Billie Eilish for Vogue.

We discuss the brilliance (and shortcomings) of creative technology, the surprisingly wide gap between creative technology and gaming, and the difficulty of making art in a medium that comes pre-packaged with tons of social and political ramifications.
