Deepfake Love Season 1 Review - Recapping Netflix's New Spanish Reality Dating Show with an AI Twist - Falso Amor

Netflix's latest reality dating show is a masterpiece. Josh, Frida, and I binge watched the whole season and we need more people to watch it so we can talk about this absolutely unhinged work of art. Deepfake Love (Falso Amor in the original Spanish) is a warning of a looming AI dystopia, a trashy reality show, and an insightful revelation into the neurotypical psyche, all at the same time. And that's realidad. Subscribe to our Patreon for just $5 a month to get an additional full-length episode every single week!

Three Human Realities Existing Simultaneously: The Autistic, Neurodivergent, and Neurotypical Neurotypes

Ready to finally understand how other people think? In general, people tend to assume that the way their brain works is more or less the way all human brains work - but they couldn't be more wrong. The diversity in how the human brain functions is so incredible it tends to be literally unbelievable because our brains cannot even conceive of these alternate ways of thinking, sensing, and processing. From internal monologues to the inability to visualize images to the fundamental thought processes of neurotypical, neurodivergent, and autistic people - you might just learn more about the way other people think within this 90 minutes than in your entire life up to this moment. This episode is a cross-post from the podcast Rethinking Reality, hosted by Erika Heidewald.¬†Show notes, sources, and links to more info can be found here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/65431642Subscribe to Rethinking Reality on Apple Podcasts:https://podcasts.apple.com/in/podcast/rethinking-reality/id1590324022or Spotify:https://open.spotify.com/show/4LxaXTFEBwlDt5oIiFxHsZAliens Watching Reality TV will be back with our regularly scheduled programming ASAP - feel free to email us with requests and suggestions for new shows we should cover!
