Chat w/ Milad Entezami (Tehran Game Convention)

July 29, 2017

Earlier this month I attended the Tehran Game Convention at the invitation of the convention and the Iranian government I experienced warm hospitality, delicious food, and a suprisingly large and active game development and publishing scene. I wanted to share more of this information with the world, so I invited one of the conference organizers, Milad Entezami, to come on the show and tell us all about Iranian game publishing and development.

Disclosure: My trip to the TGC was paid for by the convention, and I was visiting Iran at the invitation of the government. That being said, I was not paid to make this podcast. Milad's conversation closely matches both the experience I had in Iran and a number of collaborating sources. :)

Tolerance

July 17, 2017

I'm working through a bunch of things after my trip to Iran, including the viewpoint of other on my decision to travel to Iran, and while I am sorthng through my more concrete thoughts on that specific trip... I needed to get this out there. It's not about games, its not really about entertainment, but its some stuff I am working through, and perhaps it's interesting.
