the drax files radio hour [with jo yardley]

broadcasting without permission from an attic somewhere in Berlin [about the metaverse – naturally!]

show #150: sexual harassment at the [vr] workplace…

show #150.jpg

an allegation put forth by a former employee at silicon valley start-up upload vr of sexual harassment and gender discrimination and just a whole bunch of really awful behavior by the two co-founders [and other men] at the company shocked the emerging neo-vr movement possibly more than oculus’ co-founder palmer luckey’s supporting of donald trump’s presidential campaign last year.

drax discusses the matter of systemic discrimination of women [not only in the tech sector] and some ideas how to grow past the “boys club” culture which is seemingly omnipresent in  many industries [yes, not only at FOX news…] with guest Patty Rangel, long time Second Life resident, artist and thinker:
