Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds

Nina Schick (@NinaDSchick) specializes in how technology is transforming geopolitics and society in the 21st century. She is the author of Deepfakes: The Coming Infocalypse.

What We Discuss with Nina Schick:
  • What deepfakes are and how they're created using technology that is getting exponentially more sophisticated every year and accessible to anyone.
  • How deepfakes go beyond novelty and into dangerous territory occupied by blackmailers, propagandists, terrorists, conspiracy theorists, and other unsavory ne'er-do-wells who profit by making the rest of us doubt what we can trust as reality.
  • Why deepfakes are so much more concerning than reality-bending manipulations of the past.
  • The potential positive uses of AI-assisted deepfake technology that will change our world as dramatically as the advent of the Internet.
  • How we can discern between real photo, video, or audio footage and imposter deepfakes to avoid being duped by 21st-century technoshysters.
  • And much more...

    496: Schizophrenic Mother a Duty Like No Other | Feedback Friday

    1:07:13

    The schizophrenic mother with whom you've never had a great relationship is out of hospital and probably in need of high maintenance care. You feel guilty for saying so, but just being around her makes you want to leave town and disappear without leaving a forwarding address. Is there a way to ensure she's taken care of without taking on the burden of providing that care, and does it make you a terrible person for even wondering? We'll find answers to this and more here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: jordanharbinger.com/496 On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: How can you ensure your schizophrenic mother gets the care she needs without taking on a burden that eclipses your entire life? Your cousin is in the middle of a divorce from an emotionally manipulative woman who is threatening to lie to the police that he's been abusing her -- which would threaten his DREAMer status and potentially send him back to the country where he was born but hasn't seen since he was nine (he's 29 now). Is there any legal protection he can pursue? You're getting a divorce from your husband, who also happens to be your business partner. You don't want a stake in the business you helped build from the ground up, and you don't want money; you just want your dog and your truck, and you want to start a new life. But are you making a mistake to walk away with nothing? As a high school teacher, you're worried the kids you teach to live in today's world won't have a place in a tomorrow operated increasingly by artificial intelligence. What will the future of work look like, and how can you best prepare your students for this potentially dystopian future?

    495: Jon Acuff | The Surprising Solution to Overthinking

    1:16:15

    Jon Acuff (@jonacuff) is an Inc. Magazine Top 100 Leadership speaker, host of the All It Takes Is a Goal podcast, and author of multiple bestsellers. His latest book is Soundtracks: The Surprising Solution to Overthinking. What We Discuss with Jon Acuff: Jon defines a soundtrack as those repetitive thoughts that play automatically in your head that shape more of your choices than you know -- and this is why you need to curate your soundtrack. Three questions to ask yourself if you want to identify a broken soundtrack that derails your ambitions -- and change it into one that goads you into action. How you can flip a worry-inducing soundtrack into one that instills confidence. Being prepared always leads to an action; overthinking always leads to more overthinking. Something better to tell yourself than "Fake it 'til you make it" from the son of the guy who coined that phrase. And much more...

    494: Rutger Bregman | Humankind: A Hopeful History

    1:14:36

    Rutger Bregman (@rcbregman) is a historian and author who has published five books on history, philosophy, and economics. His latest is New York Times bestseller Humankind: A Hopeful History. What We Discuss with Rutger Bregman: How crises like the London Blitz during WWII and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina tend to bring out the best in people rather than the worst. Why a crisis that forces us to isolate rather than connect with each other as a way to cope (like the COVID-19 pandemic) may make some of us behave counter to this tendency, but not most. The evidence that prevails against veneer theory -- the idea that humanity is only buffered from acting on its vilest and most selfish instincts by the thin veneer of civilization (perpetrated by those in power throughout human history). The negativity bias vs. contact theory: how we can counter the effects of past bad experiences with others by increasing our exposure to diversity. How a real-life Lord of the Flies incident disproved the thesis of William Golding's fictional counterpart and showed how six shipwrecked schoolkids cooperated to thrive on a remote island for more than a year.

    493: Should You Sue Uncle Sam for Allegation Sham? | Feedback Friday

    52:11

    Your promising military career was derailed when former colleagues falsely accused you of wrongdoing to cover their own misdeeds. Even though the timeline proved that your alleged malfeasance would have been impossible and you were cleared of all charges, you missed promotions, eligibility cutoffs, special pay, and accompanying bonuses over the course of the lengthy investigation. Adding insult to these injuries is the message that your higher-ups have elected "not to go forward" with reinstating your qualifications and reimbursing you for your losses. So now you're wondering: should you sue Uncle Sam for this allegation sham? And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: jordanharbinger.com/493 On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Your military career was derailed by accusations of misconduct proven untrue, but you've been denied back pay or promotions due. Should you sue? [Thanks to attorney and friend Corbin Payne for helping us with this one!] In an out-of-character lapse of judgment, your girlfriend got drunk, drove, hit a car, and got arrested. As a result, she may spend a year in prison. While you feel bad for her, you don't want to be pulled down by her bad choices. Should you stay or should you go? In spite of the pandemic, your new business is thriving. Unfortunately, your mental health isn't, and establishing self-care boundaries with your workaholic business partner isn't panning out. Should you try to navigate the partnership for the sake of all you've built, or let it go for the sake of your sanity? What's the best way to get your child to learn a second language at a young age?

    492: Michael Shermer | Why We Believe Weird Things

    1:00:17

    Michael Shermer (@michaelshermer) is the founder of&nbsp;Skeptic&nbsp;magazine and several books on the nature of belief. He&rsquo;s the Director of The Skeptics Society, a non-profit dedicated to the promotion of science, reason, and critical thinking. He joins us to discuss why people believe weird things. [This is a rebroadcast that originally aired in 2016.] What We Discuss with Michael Shermer: How do beliefs form and persist even when we know they&rsquo;re wrong? Why do skeptics (and restaurant owners) scowl at the mention of Uri Geller? Why are smart people even more susceptible to faulty beliefs? How do our genes influence our political and religious beliefs? What&rsquo;s the difference between a skeptic and a cynic? And much more...

    1:31:47

    Ray Dalio (@RayDalio) is the founder of Bridgewater Associates &mdash; the largest and best-performing hedge fund in the world &mdash; and author of&nbsp;New York Times&nbsp;bestseller&nbsp;Principles: Life and Work. His latest book is The Changing World Order: Why Nations Succeed and Fail. What We Discuss with Ray Dalio: What history can tell us about the cycles our society has endured before and what we should expect from the cycles to come. The cycle we're currently experiencing in terms of our economy and security as a country (and as a planet). What Ray sees as the way forward to ensure these cycles serve as warnings -- not just echoes of past disasters. What the West needs to do to remain competitive with China and other emerging world powers. What Ray has learned from grieving the recent loss of his son. And much more...

    1:14:43

    You love jumping out of random hiding places in your house to startle your fianc&eacute;e, but your fianc&eacute;e does not share your enthusiasm for this "hobby" and wants you to knock it the heck off.

    489: Frank Bourassa | The World’s Greatest Counterfeiter Part Two

    1:03:20

    Frank Bourassa counterfeited and sold $250 million in fake US currency until he was nabbed in an undercover operation. Now he runs a security company and works with the police to catch other counterfeiters. What We Discuss with Frank Bourassa: How someone creates a quarter of a billion dollars in American $20 bills that not only look genuine, but feel genuine even to experts. The hours of research that Frank spent learning how to create counterfeit money that would pass most muster without immediately going to jail on his first attempt. The catalyst that drove Frank to pursue a life of crime in the first place (and has probably tempted most of us to consider it from time to time). It takes money to make money: Frank reveals the startup fees that went into his operation to literally print the perfect $20 bills en masse. How much labor actually goes into a counterfeiting project at this scale -- once you find a crew you think you can trust. And much more...

    487: Connect with Cult Father, or Don't Even Bother? | Feedback Friday

    1:01:03

    You basically grew up in a cult, and following your own path as an adult was seen as an act of "rebellion" in the eyes of your dad, from whom you've been estranged ever since. He's even forbidden you from setting foot on his property until you "repent, return, and remain." Now, years have passed and it doesn't sit well with you that your relationship is so strained. Should you try to reconnect with your cult father, or is it even worth the bother? We'll try to find answers to this and more here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: jordanharbinger.com/487 On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: After "rebelling" against the cult in which you were raised, should you try to reconnect with your estranged father, or is it even worth the bother? [Thanks to cult expert Steven Hassan for helping us with this one!] You fell behind on paperwork your job legally requires, and even though you provided it to the inspectors before the pandemic lockdowns began, you've yet to hear back from them. Now your wife says if it causes you to lose your job, she'll never forgive you. Is she overreacting? How do you handle this? You've got a new, cushy job that pays handsomely, but you're unfulfilled because it's not the work you signed up for. Quitting now means you'd have to pay off thousands in sign-on bonuses, but you feel like you're doing your career a disservice by sticking with it. Should you just shut up and be grateful, or cut your losses and find something that better suits you? Over the past year, you&rsquo;ve become obsessed with learning. You read books, consume newsletters, and listen to hours of podcasts every day. The bad news: you can't seem to retain any of it. Are you just overloading your brain circuitry, or is there a trick to getting all this new info to stick? Have any questions, comments, or stories you'd like to share with us?
