As "Ready Player One" hits theaters, the hosts of "I Love You So Much: The Austin360 Podcast" brought in movie writer Joe Gross to talk about the Austin connection to the newest Steven Spielberg film and how it depicts a future were virtual reality blurs the line between what's real and what's not.

In a chat with Omar L. Gallaga and Addie Broyles in this week's new podcast episode, Gross explained why Spielberg appeared to be having so much fun introducing the film to crowds during South by Southwest and how the movie differs from the 2011 book written by Austinite Ernest Cline. They also discussed the movie's vision of our technological future and what that means for how we use VR now.
