Please note, as this episode was recorded in isolation during Melbourne's fifth lockdown, there are a few audio issues. Thank you for your understanding.

Born at the close of the 60s, Marjane Satrapi grew up in a changing world. A child of upper middle class, left-wing Iranian parents Marjane came of age during the 1979 Iranian Revolution and the violence of the Iran-Iraq war. Her unique perspective on the revolution and war gives us a child- and teenager- eye view of a violent, complex and turbulent period in a beautiful part of the world.

Good news everyone! As of 19th July, 2021, Stan has the film version of “Persepolis” available to stream. If you’re in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia or home isolation in another state or territory due to the federal government’s extreme failure in controlling the COVID-19 pandemic and their abysmal vaccine rollout, do yourself a favour and check it out! What else are you going to do?

Thanks to Mr Grayson Brown for lending us his voice acting talents as our newsreader. You the real MVP.


Thanks to the ABC for not suing us for using Charles William’s “Majestic Fanfare.” Due to its use in jest and the shortness of the snippet, it probably counts under “fair dealing.” You don’t have the money to sue us and we don’t have the money to fight it. Let’s just chill. 

Women of War is recorded on Wurundjeri land. We pay our respects to their elders past and present. Sovereignty was never ceded.

This episode contains references to civilian deaths, brainwashing, bombing, torture, immolation, gas poisoning and other atrocities of war, child soldiers, drug addiction, forced marriage, sexual assault and rape. And swearing. 

All efforts have been made to ensure the accuracy of the information presented in this podcast however with the nature of historical research, there may be mistakes or inconsistencies.

For further reading -- read the book! It should be at your local library, or support your local bookshop. Marjane's other works include "Chicken with Plums" and "Embroideries."


Emma Watson’s interview with Marjane Satrapi can be found here.

If you’re here because you’re studying Persepolis in VCE, nice work on looking for extra resources! Send this to three friends to gain luck from the Gods of VCAA, and good luck on the GAT.
