Q&A: Introverts versus extroverts, faith in the consultation room, and a moratorium on AI research
More quickfire initial thoughts in response to questions from listeners. This week we discuss whether introverts are marginalised in the church, or actually disproportionately likely in the pulpit? We also consider how spirituality might play a role in healthcare, and in particular how Christian doctors could appropriately bring their faith into their surgeries. And finally, we wonder if a recent call by tech figures for a six-month pause on all AI research will actually mean anything.

- We’re going to start doing Q&A episodes like this a lot more often, in part to allow us to run the normal episodes in full over a single episode, rather than being split into two halves. So please do email us with feedback, questions, disagreements or any other thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
