A new podcast episode of Cloak & Dagger, an OSINT podcast, came out today that I make a special guest appearance on.

For this piece, I collaborated with the show’s host to cook up images in Midjourney that tell a completely false and invented story about how the Chinese government is experimenting with massive space arcs that they are lifting off the planet using huge balloons.

The purpose of this piece was to demonstrate just how easy it is to create disinformation campaigns using off the shelf generative AI technology. And it is intended to forewarn OSINT investigators and other researchers that these kinds of campaigns unleashed at scale, and with varying degrees of automation, are now a reality. What are we going to do about it?
