MacVoices #18170: Ken Ray and John Champion on Mission Log, Virtual Reality, and Star Trek Las Vegas

Ken Ray and John Champion are the hosts of Mission Log: A Roddenberry Star Trek Podcast, as well as Mission Log Live, and join us to talk about the history of their shows and their planned activities at Star Trek Las Vegas. The real reason for their visit is their adoption of the virtual reality platform Sansar, and how they are using it to interact with their audience. Even without VR goggles, the experience left a lasting impression on host Chuck Joiner. The discussion centers on how it is working out, what it offers now, and where they hope to take it.
