It’s like an early Christmas for me… took a walk and listened to podcasts with film music composer Hans Zimmer and with Jaron Lanier, the godfather of virtual reality. You can find the two excellent podcasts here:

Why Hans Zimmer Won’t Be Making Music for the Metaverse

The Metaverse: Expectations vs Reality (w Jaron Lanier)

I loved the first podcast, with Hans Zimmer. He is very smart and quite charming. Thoroughly enjoyable interview. That second podcast with Jaron Lanier is brilliant. I was nodding my head a lot. Deserves repeated listening.
