On this week's episode of Meat and Three, we explore what happens when food is consumed through a screen. From a simple TV or computer monitor to the more complex VR goggles, the sensory experience of food is fundamentally shifted with the mediation of a virtual barrier.

Kat Johnson first ponders the significance (or lack thereof) of fruit cameos on cable news. Next, Tash Kimmel looks at how urban foraging is aided through a virtual platform. We then move to the world of virtual reality. Emily Kunkel examines how VR can be used to unlock new therapeutic and utilitarian applications of food, and Dylan Heuer talks with Jenny Dorsey about how she uses VR to bring political and metaphorical meaning to the dinner party format.
