E116 Talking Iran with Ana Lily Amirpour | The Sarah Silverman Podcast
We’re taking a step back from our normal run of the show to bring you a very special exclusive interview with film director, screenwriter, producer and actress: Ana Lily Amirpour as she gives us a deep dive into what’s happening in Iran right now. Tune in to listen to this powerful interview and look below to see ways you can stay informed and even help.
HELP IRAN ACCESS THE INTERNET
This group of engineers have figured out a way to bypass the internet block in Iran. They provide internet access for 300,000+ Iranians. Internet access is crucial, because it allows information and videos to flow out of Iran, and keeps people inside Iran informed on protests, strikes, and other collective actions. Contributing (any amount) to these engineers is a way to help many people in Iran who currently rely on this service for accessing the internet. These engineers must stay anonymous for their safety.
