Artificial Voices Rising: The Evolution and Dangers of AI Content Creation

This is terrifying. AI is evolving so rapidly that we wouldn’t even know when we’d be able to distinguish human voices from artificial reality. And I’m here to tell you, we already don’t because I was just fooled.

Playing the Misfit Heroes podcast.

My son is 4. And because I’m a podcaster, he wants to be interested in podcast as well because we connect like that. So when we were on a quaint Sunday drive, much to my surprise, he asked if we could listen to a podcast. Now, I, of course, wanted to legitimize my craft and I asked if he wanted to listen to my podcast, which he, of course, decline, amused and bewildered at the fact that not even my progeny was interested in my podcast. Totally not salty at all about it, I began searching for a positive, kid friendly podcast. And naturally I stumbled upon Kind Things, a children’s podcast that revolves around stories being told in a delightful and easy to listen to format. The voiceover artist reading the stories was fantastic, and the voice was so clean and concise and really fit the childlike feeling and narration of the story.

Once upon a time in a faraway land, there was a young rabbit named Rosie. Rosie loved to read and watch stories, but lately she’d been feeling a little down. She had been spending too much time consuming negative media, which made her feel sad and scared.

We all really enjoy this podcast, and even I as a professional podcaster, was amazed at how eloquent and well produced the show was for a children’s podcast. Fast forward a few weeks and I start doing some research on AI generated content for a video on YouTube. And I stumble upon a site called, which is an AI voice generator. And who do I find in the list of voices? Well, hunter, the podcast we love so much as a family. Turns out hunter is an AI voice.

Like many other philosophers who have greatly extended our knowledge of nature, Galileo had a remarkable aptitude for the invention of instruments designed for philosophical research.

I’m not gonna interview hunter. I already did that with ChatGPT and he’s my Oga I voiceover on this channel. Although I am somewhat interested in what an AIMMA match would look like between the two of them.

Don’t get any ideas. I don’t like the way you’re looking at me. Maybe.

Later misfits. This got me thinking. With such rapidly advancing AI tools like this popping up on the regular, how soon will it be before you can have an AI podcast co host?

What am I? Chop liver.

Quiet robot do my bidding while I talk to the people. The rise in popularity of artificial intelligence programs is becoming so overwhelming that we are literally starting to see news programs on unable to distinguish between AI generated pictures and content. For example, on a previous episode with AI creator Sampson Voles, we discussed a Russian news organization that had falsely reported a foreign embassy being on fire.

That was a image of the Pentagon on fire. And Russia Today posted that it was a true photo and that the Pentagon was on fire and it actually had an effect on the stock markets at that moment. And there was a mini dip in the prices every stock globally because of this forcily tweet it image by Russia. Today.

There’s also been deep fix of President Joe Biden portraying Clint Eastwood’s part in the film Grand Torino. She’s supposed to be man.

That depends. Cook. You gonna tell me where corn pop at? Ever notice how you come across somebody once in a while that you know the the thing.

I’m the thing the widespread use of AI is so prevalent that even YouTube and TikTok are creating flags for AI generated content in an effort to both halt the spread of misinformation and in reality, hopefully reinstate human creativity. To be honest, a lot of you misfits tell me you watch my videos because you like the content focusing around AI news and how AI platforms are changing the landscape of how we interact as humans. If I’m being real, I think that while AI tools are cool and all, I think they’re dangerous and they could lead to some very unethical usages.

So now that I’ve said all that, here’s how to do it yourself. Again, the platform is called And if you watch my interview with ChatGPT, it works pretty much the same way. You simply log into the website, type out what you want the AI to say, and bibbie, bobbidi, boo, in a matter of seconds, the AI is created a voice recording of the words and phrases that you’ve typed out. Now play that HT at the time of this recording as audio only, but the content generation is very solid. And at the moment you get 12,500 characters for free to try it out. So if you can type a 12,500 character document, my buddy hunter can recite it word for word. Audio is cool, but what about video? I knew you were wondering it before where I even set it here. Let me show you misfits. When I got started podcasting, I was really into Joe Rogan. He’s got some amazing and interesting guests on, and he knows how to keep a conversation light and engaging. I kind of pull heavily from his interview style, if I’m being honest. But unfortunately, Joe never invited me on his podcast.

Soccer. Maybe it’s how you treat your.

AI cohort. I said, get back in your cage. Well, shamethrowing aside, now I can be a guest on the Joe Rogan experience. Chris, look, I’m a big fan, but this is a bad idea, man. I mean, it’s low. Even for you. You’ve got to stop, man. It’s not gonna end well, bro. Never meet your heroes. Words hurt. Joe, also, I think there’s something wrong with your mouth. Obviously, misfits.

This interaction was completely AI generated. I used an AI called Parrot AI that generates text to video content using the likenesses of many celebrities from the likes of Donald Trump, Joe Biden, Mr B. Steven, fictional characters like Eric Cartman and Stewie Griffin. Again, you type what you want them to say and a video is created with their likeness and voiceover.

I’m sure there’s nothing that could go wrong with to opposing presidential candidates being able to literally make videos of their opponent saying increasingly condemning commentary in an election year no less. Do with that information you will.

I could make a corn pop. Mine would be tremendous. I could make 10 times the corn pop you.

Could. All jokes aside, here in lies the issue that I foresee with these AI generated content platform. Can we at least admit that it’s a little bit scary that you can create an AI voice clone of yourself? I’m gonna be honest. I had someone tell me that they wanted me to do a video of how to clone your own voice into an AI program. I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. There’s something about importing your likeness into an AI. Construct that seems a little bit too much of the beast for me. You tell me. Do you think this is where the future is headed? Will you input your likeness or identity into a computer program? If so, let me know. Maybe we’ll collaborate and make a tutorial about how to do it in a video. Don’t do it.

That’s what he told me. And now look at me.

Again. Your cage. How do you keep getting out? Misfits? I hope this was eye opening for you. It’s really astounding how far and in such a quick time period that AI has evolved from what seemed like science fiction just a few years ago to now being integrated so heavily into seemingly every industry that you can think of. If you can’t see where the future is headed, I don’t know how else I can convince you. The AI overlords are here and they fooled me. Did they fool you? Let me know what you think down in the comments below. Misfits just like DJ Khaled. We just did another one.

Another one, another one, another one, and another one.

I want to give a big shout out to the Kind Things podcast for letting me share the secrets of their podcast content. We’re still big fans even though hunter is a robot. Keep on doing what you do. That’s all I’ve got for you this week. Misfits, as always, if you were even remotely vexed or amazed by this episode, do me a favor and carelessly whisper against that like and subscribe button. And be sure to leave a rating or review the show on Apple Podcast or Spotify or wherever else you listen to the show. And as always, if you do no other things in this big wide world today, let it be this. Be kind. Love one another. Be a hero.
