This is a Take Two! Guest Co-Host Shannon Algeo and James's, previous episode was lost to the either, and they had to gather to do it again! Awe the world of podcasting! We re-dive back in to highlights from this week’s debate, Mom & Dad are fighting? What is the beef between Warren and Sanders, or is this just tribalism amongst their supporters taken to extreme degrees on the social webs? Are the media, and Russia at it again? Find out why Lev Parnas has James throwing tables and where he believes we should really be focused and unified. Cynthia Enrivo said “un uh” to the BAFTA’s over POCs being snubbed AGAIN. Also... what is Meryl Streep’s process: we have theories! Could the She Devil herself Roseanne be at the center of it? In the main event, Shannon is going to align our chakra’s highlighting an ancient yoga practice James dubs Adult Napping. We look into why in these times we need to become awake to the things that are sleeping inside of us, how we become what we repeatedly practice (whether that’s stress, or anxiety), Shannon defines trauma, what the Four C’s of Life are, how we contain multitudes, and scientifically, why diversity is beneficial to everyone. We are going to connect to our inner world!

It’s going to get so nerdy! More than usual- this is going to be a 12 off the nerd scale so get ready! We've got The legendary Cymatic Bruce a VR Evangelist, DDR World Champion, Co Founder of Alt Space VR, and just a fabulous blerd! We are going to revisit some of our favorite Sci-Fi and Fantasy movie epics like Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit, The Matrix Trilogy, leading into a discussion about the Witcher and how best to enjoy this diverse fantasy epic (you can tell what I did over the break). And in the main event Bruce leads us in a conversation about video games and tech by first talking about the god father of video game consoles... Jerry Lewis, who was an early Black Silicon Valley engineer and creator of the Fairchild Channel F. He’s kind of like Bruce’s Obi Wan because through him we get Bruce’s origin story, and being Black and navigating the tech and video game world. This of course launches us into so many conversations about the Black Silicon Valley Exodus, toxic masculinity in the competitive video game world, the history of marketing video games to boys how that came to be, and the inclusivity of some pockets of the video game world over others and the direction it’s all heading in. Get your Star Wars Mandalorian Nerd goggles on and your Witcher’s Sorcerer's tarp on because you well get wet... with all this sweet sweet nerdtastic talk.

 

Cymatic Bruce: https://cymaticbruce.com/, Twitter: @CymaticBruce, YouTube, co-founded Silicon Valley Virtual Reality (SVVR), an international organization for VR professionals and pioneers; AltspaceVR, a socialVR platform that has since been acquired by Microsoft; created and delivered hundreds of hours of science curriculum via The Tech Museum in San Jose; accrued over a million views of his gaming/VR video content; and has presented, performed, and competed worldwide.
