I Am a Guest on the VR in Education Podcast with Craig Frehlich

Yesterday evening, I had an enjoyable, wide-ranging conversation with Singapore-based teacher Craig Frehlich on his VR in Education podcast, about the intersection of social VR and education. (He had discovered me via that article that Patty Marx wrote for the Dec. 9th, 2019 issue of New Yorker magazine.)

Here’s a link to the 30-minute episode if you want to have a listen.

I Am This Week’s Guest on The Drax Files Radio Hour, Talking About Douglas Rushkoff’s Article and Social VR

On Saturday I was a guest of Bernhard Drax (a.k.a. Draxtor Despres in Second Life and Sansar) on his long-running weekly podcast, The Drax Files Radio Hour.

We talk about Douglas Rushkoff’s provocative article, Most VR is Total Bullshit. But Drax and I also discussed many other topics in social VR, including mentions of Sansar, High Fidelity, AltspaceVR, VRChat, Rec Room, Decentraland, and the forthcoming Facebook Horizon. We also talk a fair bit about Facebook in general—and Drax takes me to task for rejoining the Facebook social network!

Here’s a link to the podcast. It’s about an hour long. Enjoy!
