    Web 3.0 Virtual Reality Creator Ashley Briley

    In this week's episode of the Black Girl Nerds podcast, we welcome VR creator Ashley Briley.




    World Builder Ashley Briley made “Den of Horrors,” a successful Horizon Worlds horror experience that was building up traction and excitement in the Horizon Worlds community. Meta reached out to her to gauge her interest in the project without revealing its ties to the Nope film. As soon as Monkeypaw and Universal saw “Den of Horrors” they were blown away and asked to work with the creator of the world. Ashley agreed and formed a group of diverse creators (Samantha Nunoo, Matt Torres and Kevin Dixon) to help her kick off building.

Ashamed

I’m so ashamed that I just found this amazing pod. It’s a must listen. Keep up the excellent work.

came for GoT

Started listening for the Game of Thrones coverage because I wanted a more diverse perspective of that show, but stayed and listen to the coverage of Hamdmaid’s Tale, which I don’t even watch. I love the ladies’ entertaining and informative banter.
