Welcome to The Reality Escape Pod, your lifeline when you need a getaway from the real world.

With this Podcast, your hosts David Spira & Peih-Gee Law explore immersive gaming from all angles, alongside guests with incredible experience in this realm.

Our guests have made awesome stuff: ARGs, puzzle hunts, tabletop games, and of course, escape rooms… to name a few. Our aim is to bring together different segments of the gaming world and share ideas between them.

The Reality Escape Pod is brought to you by co-hosts David Spira and Peih-Gee Law.

Room Escape Artist readers already know David. He’s one half of the driving force behind REA. They likely know Peih-Gee as well. She started writing for REA as a Hivemind reviewer early in 2020, and she hosted the Q&A sessions for RECON ‘20 Global.

David and Peih-Gee met, appropriately enough, when they both appeared as guests on No Proscenium’s podcast to discuss immersive gaming and Survivor (which Peih-Gee considers the world’s greatest immersive game). Peih-Gee is a former two-time contestant on Survivor and also an enthusiastic ambassador for the immersive gaming community.

In the course of working together on REA and RECON, David and Peih-Gee enjoyed countless conversations about the escape room industry, trading war stories and opinions on everything escape room related. And then it clicked… these conversations were the foundation of the podcast David had been eyeing.


The Reality Escape Pod is produced as a season of episodes. Each podcast is a structured 30-60 minute interview with a knowledgeable guest.

While in-season, episodes are released once a week for free wherever you listen to podcasts.

Bonus companion episodes (for each weekly episode!) are available exclusively for REA Patreon backers.
