I have a bit of a think about how the world asks us to divide ourselves. Yeah, I am still thinking Iran - but in my defense, I recorded this 2 weeks ago. All still very relavant. I promise, near the end, I talk games, entertainment, and culture... but the beginning is a bit political.
I have a long response to the people on my Facebook about the concept of the "Selfmade man" and my experiences in travelling in Indonesia.
I have a very involved chat w/ Kris Antoni from Jakarta about starting and running Toge Productions, makers of the Infectionator series, and one of the most successful independent game studios in Indonesia.
I have a wonderful chat with Pablo Bairan from the Philippines about the Cosplay in the Philippines. If you've ever wondered what that was all about, this is probably the best explanation I've ever gotten about the lure, joy, and mechanics of cosplay.
I talk about the joy of ignorance, and how sometimes it's critical to the process to put your experience aside.
We chat with author and photographer Vincent Carrella about what it means to follow your dreams, what you sacrifice to be a working artist, and what success means. It's one of the most honest interviews I have ever had, and a must-listen for aspiring makers of things.
Chris talks about community, and what it means to belong to something. He also digresses a great bit about Japan, the 1980's, whisky, and Reddit.
Chris talks about overcoming fear, and getting through the wall that stops most people from succeeding. It's shockingly relevant.
I have a chat with entrepreneur, game developer, and businessman Gabby Dizon about founding and running Altitude Games, in Manila. We talk about production, virtual offices, working fromhome, working with investors, and growing a game studio. Lots of great information inside!
I talk my trip to Berlin, and the perils of making assessments w/o context. I cover a bunch of ground. Airline travel, game conventions, immigration, architecture, and the age old question of whether or not to recline in airplane seats.
