Dudes ‘n Beer Ep: 284 Human Trafficking and #SaveOurChildren with Billy Joe Cain

In this episode of the Dudes n Beer podcast host Christopher Jordan welcomes regular guest and head of the Radical Empathy Education Foundation to discuss the latest developments in their groundbreaking virtual reality experience Trapped: A VR Detective Story, their recent study into the scourge of human trafficking and #SaveOurChildren making headlines across the country with their apparent infiltration by Qanon. With high-profile cases like Jefferey Epstein and now Ghislaine Maxwell as well as a recent Presidential Executive Order taking actions against human trafficking it seems as though the cause has finally made headlines. But these are just the “news-worthy” cases. Everyday hundreds of children are groomed and forced into the world of human trafficking. How is it that such a heinous act could be happening so regularly not only in the United States, but across the globe? What can we do to not only learn to recognize the subtle signs of these being trafficked and how can technology such as virtual reality begin to open the doors of understanding with this all too common menace in our society? Join the Dudes n Beer podcast as we welcome Billy Joe Cain, head of ReefCares.org to discuss the latest developments in the world of building empathy through virtual reality and what we can do to help stop human trafficking.
