Does this get better??? The story could be interesting but it’s 90% rambling of an insane person saying the same thing over and over again in diff ways and then a liiiittke storyline sprinkled in there

Mostly people critiquing humanity, philosophizing about humanity and describing what they did to get away from an ominous AI. Couldn't finish it.

Heard about this show from an ad in Midnight Burger. Dropped it after listening to episode 1 and 3/4 of episode 2. It feels like ChatGPT's first audio drama: there's a thread or two connecting the overall whole, but the narrative inbetween is disjointed and rambling. Perhaps this narrative style is meant to convey Kurt's mental condition, but it just feels like word soup most of the time.
