Introduce yourself.

The Otherweb is an information platform that aggregates information from all around the web and filters junk out (using AI).

Our podcast is an unsafe space where we discuss the internet, the media, and the information ecosystem in all its flawed glory.

They worked together on the podcast until the pandemic caused Dr. Riz to spend more time treating patients who were developing limb blockages due to COVID.

Share an experience that has shaped who you are today.

I spent 15 years of my life building perception systems. Cameras, computer vision, that sort of thing.

I figured that the most important thing I can do with my life is to try and fix it.

Tell us about your podcast audience.

They’re primarily people who use our products (we have ~126k active users right now).

In most cases this means the person is an information-junkie, a techie, or both.

We’re focusing on the “meta” of information online – why do people create what they create and consume what they consume?

What incentives drive this ecosystem? And how can we fix it?
