It’s been a busy week in the world of the metaverse, capped off by a fascinating display of the next generation of 3D avatars as Mark Zuckerberg and Lex Fridman recorded a podcast fully in their Codec Avatar form via a Meta Quest headset.

During their conversation, Yon & Priya cover what we saw and learned from Zuck’s podcast appearance, the recent layoffs at Epic Games, where Roblox is headed coming out of their developer conference, and much more.
