Chat w/ Brie Code (Tru Luv Media)

August 10, 2017

I had the great fortune to meet Brie Code while I was in Tehran, and she graciously agreed to come on the show to talk about AI, programming, managing creative people, a virtual game development lifestyle, working with huge teams (as she did on Assassins Creed at Ubisoft), and starting Tru Luv Media. A great chat, full of great information for people across the creative industries. Some especially interesting insights on "how things get made" in large game studios.

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. :)
