OK Smart-ass

This is the show where we put technology under the microscope we take a photo of it with our smartphones, zoom in really close, we chuck it into the blender, press the button and look at what’s happening in technology innovation and gadgets that make our lives so much more exciting.

Who is the Smart-ass?

Should we spell the name of our podcast smart-arse or smart-ass? 

Who are these crazy nerds and why do they love technology so much?

These are the very important questions we want to delve into every fortnight on OK Smart-ass (arse).  And for those people in North America a fortnight is not only a cool game but it also means we do an episode every two weeks.

Patrick is joined by aerospace engineer Ryan who reckons AI Chat isn’t as smart as everyone thinks. 

Bing AI Search had a brain fart but that’s nothing compared to the scientists wanting to blast moon dust around the earth to stop global warming.

Diesel and petrol cars to be banned in Europe. Medical experiments into magic mushrooms are being combined with VR, and looking at your phone too much could make you dumb and dumber.

Not only will you help us cover our production costs but you will probably get a smart ass xmas card from Patrick and a jet-pack from Tor*

*Disclaimer: Tor isn’t going to give a jet-pack to anyone! I don’t know why Patrick** is allowed to write this stuff without first checking with Tor.

**Disclaimer: Fine, then I’m not going to send out any xmas cards, except to anyone who sends one to me***.

***Disclaimer: If you don’t take this seriously Patrick, then no one is going to support us by going to Patreon and you’ll end up out of pocket with not enough money for stale bread! And you can kiss goodbye to buying yourself a jet-pack****.

****Disclaimer: Fine.. Ok then, fine.


What do you mean I always have to have the last word!
