Ep 86 - The Salesman
PSA: We recommend you listening to this episode even if you haven't seen Asghar Fahardi's "The Salesman". The first half is a really fascinating discussion about the recent executive order which would ban Fahardi from attending this years Oscar ceremony.
Finally, Shahir gets to introduce Matt to his favorite working writer/director. But can the strength of Fahardi's work pierce Matt's cold dead heart? How many Marvel/DC and Hasbro references can the guys cram into the episode while discussing politics, Iran, national cinema and Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman?
We're also joined remotely by Iranian cinema expert (out of the 3 of us!) Rya Backer (@ryabacker), who fills us in on all the little details we might have missed!
