When we bought Nvidia in January 2019, it was $33 a share. Today, it is $800 a share. That was the trade of our lives. We want to find an investment that's just as good as our Nvidia investment using Gemini. And I think we can do it. Basically what we have done is we have downloaded earnings call transcripts from 2022 and 2023.

We're going to load them into Gemini and we'll ask some questions, see how it does. This is the stock that we came to at the end of a long journey, and I'll let you see it as I do it. We're going to swipe up to submit. Order received. So there we go.

Hey, I want to just take a quick break from this episode to tell you about a podcast you should know about. It’s hosted by Nathan Labenz, who was actually on this show and did one of the most popular episodes we’ve ever had about how to use AI as a copilot for the mind.
