This is a must-listen for you nerd parents out there! We're shaking things up a bit this week as Russell and Jerry continue the discussion about virtual reality, bringing in "techie pediatrician" Dr. Joe Cohen of Austin, Texas, to help answer some burning questions about VR and our children. Is it safe? How much is too much? And what's the right age to let a child try VR?
