In the late 2000s, halfway across the world from the premiere event in the pop culture scene--the San Diego Comic Con--a young man couldn’t understand why the Middle East didn’t have one of these mega events for the aficionados of comic books & pop culture. Pull up a chair & join our conversation with Arafaat Ali Khan, co-founder of the Middle East Film & Comic Con.

There's also a bonus episode where we find out what happened to those two girls who served as a catalyst to getting it all started.


Hosted & produced by Chirag Desai. With support from Abhishek Venkatasubramanian, Sukayna Kazmi & Zainab Ujjaini. Original music composed by Reiner Erlings.
