Don't Forget Hooves Legs You're Standing On: TM 158 (ft. Patreon CEO, AI Tech For Cows)

This episode marks our two-year anniversary of being on Patreon -- something that we never expected to be as crucial to the show's survival as it's become. Thank you for the support over the last 24 months, and letting us continue being able to bring the show to you every week.

Producing Tech's Message on top of my full-time job as an editor at Bloomberg takes anywhere between eight and 12 hours a week, most of which tends to take place at the weekends. The Patreon community, along with the valuable word-of-mouth promotion of our free listeners, has made this extra workload feel manageable. Thank you!
