Features reimagined as audiobooks

"The leaders of [Israel] threaten us with military action," the Iranian supreme leader proclaims as a gleaming white missile prepares to launch. "But I think most of them know — and if they don’t, they should — that if they lay a finger on us, the Islamic Republic of Iran will raze them to the ground."

So begins Polygon's latest feature, "The Game Industry of Iran." You can read it on Polygon, of course. You can also listen to it in the latest episode of Polygon Longform, our features podcast, below.
