We hear from a researcher in ethics of video games who argues that in order to combat harassment, there will need to be structural changes in both our digital and physical lives. Then later on, what's Jeff Goldblum's morning routine? Does he want to go to space? And why has he given up caffeine? We hear from the Hollywood star as a second series of The World According to Jeff Goldblum is released. What can games teach us about managing communities in the VR spaces of the metaverse? From Wired, Lucy Sparrow, a PhD researcher in ethics and multiplayer games, argues that to build healthy communities in virtual reality, we must move beyond automated penalties toward proactive forms of governance. After a career spanning half a century, Jeff Goldblum is showing no signs of slowing down. For The Wall Street Journal, the beloved actor talks to Lane Florsheim about his morning routine, his plans for the future and the piece of advice he has carried with him since he was a teenager.
