Welcome back to the In Reality podcast, covering all things Augmented & Virtual Reality. In Reality features industry news, commentary, and perspective from AR/VR veterans and experts.

In Reality is co-hosted by Marxent’s Joe Johnson and Joe Bardi. Johnson is the Creative Director at Marxent, and has been in the AR/VR industry for four and a half years following a stint on Microsoft’s Office UX team. Bardi is Marxent’s Senior Content Strategist, and has been in the industry for about a year, after having spent more than a decade in print and TV media.

For this week’s show, the Joes are joined by Rick Hanley, Marxent’s CFO since the company’s inception, and has worked in a variety of finance positions in both retail and marketing. Rick grew up hanging around the department stores his father managed, and got his first taste of retail during that time.

On this week’s show, we’re taking a look at the biggest AR/VR IPO to date, wait for it … Snapchat! We’ll also be talking about the SnapBot, Snap’s Spectacles-hawking vending machine, which may be less novelty and more sign of things to come in retail.

Thanks for listening. We really do appreciate it! Enjoyed the show? Please check out previous episodes at the In Reality Soundcloud page.
