RAT.HUB | Start­up Pod­cast: Lin­da Rath in con­ver­sa­ti­on with Aela Calan

From Lin­da Rath about Aela Calan:

I am very hono­red to be cal­ling Aela Cal­lan as my first guest on the second sea­son of my pod­cast RAT.HUB. Aela is an award-win­ning jour­na­list and film­ma­ker, she work­ed as a for­eign cor­re­spon­dent at Al Jaze­era and pro­du­ced docu­men­ta­ries for Al Jazeera’s 101 East pro­gram. She was sel­ec­ted for a pres­ti­gious John S. Knight fel­low­ship for jour­na­lism inno­va­ti­on at Stan­ford Uni­ver­si­ty and a few years ago she star­ted her own com­pa­ny cal­led head set.

When I met Aela more than five years ago, we regu­lar­ly dis­cus­sed how vir­tu­al rea­li­ty is going to chan­ge jour­na­lism and how it can help tell bet­ter sto­ries. How times have chan­ged. I remem­ber Aela always went to all the inter­na­tio­nal con­fe­ren­ces to see the latest and best VR expe­ri­en­ces and she’s had a very clear under­stan­ding of what immersi­ve tech­no­lo­gies can do for jour­na­lism. i am bey­ond exci­ted to speak with her.
