Finding Genius Podcast

Apr 1, 2024

In this episode, we sit down with Joan Cohen to discuss her latest book, The Deepfake: A Novel. Newly released in April 2024, Joan takes us on a journey into the life of Sylvie,  an employee at an AI company. In this gripping story, we are confronted with the ethics of AI, corporate scandals, and a woman’s self-discovery. This incredibly well-timed and thought-provoking narrative highlights the potentially harmful effects of powerful technology with wisdom – with an added bit of romance, too… 

Joan is a Massachusetts-based author with a background in sales & marketing at computer hardware and software companies. Once she retired, she returned to school to pursue an MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Since then, she has written two books, including The Deepfake and her 2019 release, The Land of Last Chances: A Novel.
