WPBriefs - WordPress News in Shorts


About WPBriefs

WPBriefs is a weekday podcast that delivers the latest WordPress news in three minutes or less. It’s a quick and easy way to stay up-to-date on the latest WordPress news and events. It is an AI-generated podcast, so it’s not perfect, but it’s pretty good. WPBriefs is a great way to stay informed.

How it’s Made

WPBriefs uses a variety of AI technologies to make it possible.

The content is pulled from a collection of WordPress news RSS feeds, filtered, and then fed into OpenAI to generate the script. The script is then passed to Amazon Polly to generate the audio. The website uses Jekyll and is automatically updated when the script is created.

You can read more about the process in the WPBriefs: How it’s Made post.
