Artificial intelligence chatbot ChatGPT produced a 51-minute episode of The Joe Rogan Experience that features a near-flawless rendition of the podcast host’s voice and OpenAI CEO Sam Altman’s voice.
The episode begins with an AI-generated Rogan welcoming the audience to the first episode of the “Joe Rogan AI Experience”, speaking in a manner and tone that is hard to distinguish from a real person.
“I’m your host, Joe Rogan, or at least this AI model sounds like me. Let me tell you, folks, this is some next-level stuff we’re launching here today,” Fox Rogan continued. “Every word in this podcast was created with ChatGPT.”
AI chatbot ChatGPT can influence people’s moral judgments, research says
Throughout the podcast, Rogan and Altman’s synthetic voices discuss numerous topics, including the need for ethics in AI, ChatGPT’s potential impact on the content industry, whether people should be concerned about fake AI content, and Elon Musk’s talk about OpenAI.
A conversation between two fake voices may seem authentic to an uninformed listener. However, there are instances where Rogan and Altman’s syntax and speech patterns can seem overly cumbersome or inhuman.
For example, ChatGPT tries to mimic the natural pauses of human speech, with Rogan and Altman saying “ah”s and “ums” to convey genuine and staggered thought processes. However, pauses sometimes appear too frequently or sometimes feel inappropriate
Additionally, when asked a question by the wrong Rogan, the AI-generated Altman almost always restates the question while answering the question. Practicing public speakers often engage in this type of response, where the output almost always repeats the question, usually in a very similar fashion.

The YouTube channel that posted the AI-generated conversation also released a second episode with a podcast between Rogan and a synthetic voice of former President Donald Trump.
“Joe, it’s great to be here,” the fake Trump said at the start of the podcast. “I’m doing fantastic. Just fantastic. The energy in this room is amazing.”
Throughout the video, the AI expertly manipulates Trump’s manner of speaking and common use of strong adjectives like “comprehensive,” “incredible,” and “brilliant.” Rogan’s voice has also been improved from previous videos; However, the fake Trump noticeably lacks the assertive voice of his human counterpart.

The video quickly garnered a flurry of reactions on Twitter, Rogan himself noticed, Who wrote, “This is getting too slippery, kids.”
Others were shocked by the video, expressing concern about the potential of the rapidly evolving technology.
“This is the scariest thing I’ve ever seen,” British writer Joshua Vernson tweeted. The potential for nefarious uses of AI has advanced to varying degrees. It feels like we’re closing in on Pandora’s box.”
Richard Beauregard, a former actuary and business software expert, called the video “mind-blowingly dangerous” and predicted that in less than 10 years no data “will be credible again.”
“Everything you see and hear will be fake, and no one will be able to tell,” he added.
AI-generated photos of Trump resisting and running from the NYPD circulated on Twitter ahead of his federal indictment in late March.
Last year, an entire AI-generated episode was released with a fake interview between Rogan and Steve Jobs.
