Paired is genuinely one of the most original podcasts out there. The idea of Pairy the AI becoming sentient and trying to get an understanding of the world is genius. As you begin to wonder how the show can evolve, the AI manages to escape the confines of the room to connect (pair) with all sorts of devices in the world around them. There is an underlying story arc, about which I don't want to give too much away - it is only briefly and occasionally touched on, but is incredibly moving. This is all helped by the acerbic wit of Pairy, some brilliant and very funny writing and exceptionally talented guests. Since the episodes are short, this show is an easy binge so go on, get connected.......get yourself Paired. I'm so sorry
This is definitely one of those shows where you have to pull out the 'three episode' rule (give it three episodes or so before you make your decision). It does take some getting use to, and you have to adjust yourself to the charm. But once you adjust your expectations, the appeal of the show makes itself so much more obvious.
Smart-home AI just wants to be helpful; She jumps around from device to device (not limited to one home) going on adventures and trying to guide her poor human through whatever uncomfortable situation they've found themself in. (I cannot describe this in a way that communicates how much fun it is. Just try it.) This show is hilarious. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I gave it a go and I'm so glad I did. It's light-hearted, bite-sized episodes, and they're all independent (at least so far) so you can put them on in the background for a giggle or gunshot them (like I did).
