Jerri Lynn Hogg, Director of the Media Psychology PhD program at Fielding University joins Holly for a conversation about virtual reality and where it’s taking us. From educational environments that we can now create, to augmented and virtual spaces, we ask the questions of how are we changing as we become more connected this way and how is technology influencing us? What are the ethical implications of following a 12 year old girl around a Syrian refugee camp and how do these new “realities” affect us with their ability to harm or heal?

After listening to this you'll find yourself asking the questions, "Where am I putting unnecessary limitations on myself?" or saying, "I can’t because they - someone else - won’t let me." Catherine Clinch breaks through barriers and lets us know that you don't have to be done just because they tell you leave the table.
