Robert Hernandez is a Digital Journalism Professor at USC, and he serves a sort of innovation lab to see how journalists can use emerging technologies to tell stories. I talk with him about some of his projects including “The Deported: Life Beyond the Border” and a series of “Homeless Realities” 360 videos and Snapchat filters of immersive stories of the homeless population featuring audio guided tours of photogrammetry scans of their homes. So we cover what he’s been finding to be the unique storytelling affordances of VR and AR, and I share some of my deeper thoughts on the philosophy of journalism at the end of the episode.
