This week, St. Louis on the Air host Don Marsh took a look at the burgeoning field of virtual reality from a business perspective. On Friday's "Behind the Headlines," St. Louis Public Radio Engagement Producer Kimberly Springer brought a journalistic perspective to the discussion.

 

She highlighted several projects from publications such as the New York TimesThe Guardian and the Center for Investigative Reporting and also discussed the ethical implications of VR's use in journalism.
