A listener has emailed in his dilemma off the back of our recent series of episodes: His small evangelical church teaches a traditional Christian message on relationships and marriage, yet offers single members like him no opportunities to meet like-minded women. Is it OK for him to turn to dating apps to fish in a deeper pool, or are the apps unavoidably commodifying his sisters in Christ and conforming him to secular cultural ethics on relationships?

Then, we ponder a recent news story about AI robocalls in the United States trying to interfere in the presidential election and wonder what may be coming down the track as this technology gets rapidly better and easier to deploy.
