Shownotes

Ever watch two lawyers talk about art? This isn’t the setup to a joke - this episode Jason and Philip talk about their relationship with art and how art is operationalized and monetized in virtual worlds that need to be created.

They are joined by Robbi Firestone, an artist who has successfully sold her digital artwork via blockchain technology and someone passionate about how the metaverse could lead to worlds exploding with creativity and expression.

Could is the operative word because if Jason’s doodles make the metaverse, it would become an amateurish hellscape.
