Episode notes

Payal Arora, Marcus du Sautoy, Tarun Khanna, Renata Lok-Dessallien, Pragya Sharma and Meredith Broussard moderated by Sanjoy K. Roy.

Has technology, with its augmented and extended reality, and the social disengagement of the Pandemic, transformed our perception of the real? Has the virtual world  changed and upended the significance of physical experience? What are the definitions of reality? What defines the new realities?  Writers and thinkers, futurists and traditionalists discuss and debate if the virtual has overtaken the real.
