Jason Howell speaks with returning guest Blake Harris, author of the bestseller Console Wars, about his latest book, The History of the Future: Oculus, Facebook, and the Revolution That Swept Virtual Reality. They discuss Harris' three-plus years chronicling the meteoric rise of Oculus, the VR company founded by Palmer Luckey in 2012 that was acquired for over $2 billion dollars only two years later; and how he, after being systematically lied to by Facebook executives, uncovered the true story that led to the controversial firing of Luckey.
