    Why didn’t Chris and Dan get into Berghain? (Part 1)
    Two Americans embark on a quest: fly across an ocean to try to get into the most exclusive nightclub in the world – Berghain. A German techno palace where the line outside can last 8 hours, and the bouncers are merciless in their judgments. The club does not explain how it makes its decisions about who can enter, but one foolish podcaster will try to explain anyway.  Support the show: search engine.show To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

    How much glue should you put in your pizza?
    An internet breaking news story. As we told you last week, Google has begun offering AI-generated answers to search questions. But some answers, it turns out, are strange. Users were told, for instance, that glue was an appropriate ingredient for homemade pizza. We talk to reporter Katie Notopolous, who baked and ate her own homemade glue pizza.

    How do we survive the media apocalypse? (Part 2)
    Last week, Google announced a fundamental change to how the site will work, which will likely have dire effects for the news industry. When you use Google now, the site will often offer AI-generated summaries to you, instead of favoring human-written articles. We talk to Platformer’s Casey Newton about why this is happening, why publishers are nervous, and about a secret new internet you may not have heard of, a paradise to which we may all yet escape.   Support the show at searchengine.show!

    A Curious Life

    A Curious Life
    A Curious Life, hosted by Hadley Christoffels, is a show where we go ‘behind-the-scenes’ with interesting folk from all across the data ecosystem. It is a series of chilled out campfire-like discussions where we explore how the trait of curiosity has impacted their lives and careers. Hadley has spent the last 2 decades helping businesses extract value from data. As a self-professed lover of “all things D”, he enjoys learning about new technologies, people and ways of thinking. And how that gets us one step closer to scaling the value gained from using data to inform better and faster decisions. As a husband and father first, his hope is that the innovative use of data will have a positive impact on future generations in both Enterprise and Society at large. http://www.acuriouslife.ai
