UploadVR’s weekly podcast, The VR Download, is LIVE on YouTube today at 10:30 AM PST (17:30 UTC)!

Unlike regular video podcasts, The VR Download is broadcast from virtual reality! Our team are together in a virtual space, giving us many of the benefits of a studio even though we live on different continents.

Our Special Guest this week is Nonny de la Peña, a pioneer in Immersive journalism, founder and CEO of Emblematic Group.

This week’s Hot Topic: Oculus Quest and Valve Index are backordered to February. What does this mean for VR?
