Episode 38 - Local Radio Station Interview
Back in June I was interviewed as a guest on a morning talk show called “Chicks Dishing” at a local radio station, WLTN-FM, in the White Mountains region of Littleton, New Hampshire. In this episode I replay the show, about a half-hour. We were invited on air to promote a new local meetup group, the Littleton Tech Meetup, but we spent considerable time talking about virtual reality. It was fun framing the conversation for a general audience including people who probably have never seen or even heard of virtual reality and augmented reality.

I took this opportunity to speak with many of them before and after their trying VR for the first time. And I assembled the recordings here for this podcast.

Episode 30 - Wired Illuminates the Artificial Reality Revolution
Yesterday a fantastic article was published in Wired, "The Untold Story of Magic Leap, the World’s Most Secretive Startup" by Kevin Kelly proportedly about the stealth startup, Magic Leap, but it’s really an amazing survey of the state of the art of the VR and mixed reality revolution. I’ve decided to share it with you, Audiobook-style in this special episode. Actually I’m not sure this is entirely legal and I will happily take it down if Wired insists, but meanwhile, if you listen to this episode please also visit the actual article on Wired.com so they’ll benefit from your eyeballs.
