Description

"Metaverse" is a word that's hard to define — and means different things to different people. The term was coined by sci-fi writer Neal Stephenson in his 1992 novel, "Snow Crash," to describe a world similar to that which was later popularized in Ernest Cline's 2011 book, "Ready Player One," which was adapted into a film by Steven Spielberg.

On episode 1 of Adweek's Metaverse Marketing Podcast, we're joined by metaverse experts to hear how exactly they define the word "metaverse".
