“The great power of virtual reality news is that you have a choice in the way you consume it” – Louis Jebb, on news in virtual reality.
Today on the podcast I have my good friend Louis Jebb. Louis is the founder and CEO of immersiv.ly, a new media company, the creator of the worlds first 360 degree, virtual reality (VR) news documentary: Hong Kong Unrest. Louis founded Immersiv.ly as a response to the disinterest in traditional consumption of ‘sensationalistic’ news. Louis believes in editorial awareness, fairness, and authenticity. Louis has also been a great reference for me about the world of media and interviews as I started and launched the Art of Adventure. Here is a guy who knows the power of thinking big and making things happen! Enjoy!
