Pop GO Presents: Reader Appreciation Week Podcast

populationgo:

Pop GO wouldn’t be what it is today if it didn’t have the continued support of the readers. So this week, while not as ambitious as the first Reader Appreciation Week, is meant to do just that: show our appreciation to our wonderful readers out there!

To help celebrate this week, a few staff members — Calvin, Erin, Ian, Paolo and Steve — came together and recorded a special podcast this past weekend. And thanks to those of you who sent in topics, they had a lot of good things to talk about!

If your topic was chosen by a specific member and discussed by the rest of the staff members, then you will be given an awesome prize from the member who chose your topic! Did your topic get chosen? Download the podcast to find out!

And even if you didn’t send in a topic, give the podcast a listen. Very good discussions were had on it, and it’ll allow you to familiarize yourself with a few of our writers.

Hit the break to listen to Pop GO’s special R.A.W. Podcast! :)

Caine’s Arcade

Nine-year-old Caine Monroy spent his summer vacation building his own arcade in his dad’s used auto parts store, using numerous boxes. Filmed by Nirvan Mullick, the director saw Monroy’s arcade while looking for a door handle in the auto parts store. 

In a heart-warming effort, Mullick set up a fun flashmob to enjoy Monroy’s arcade and filmed his response.

Who says arcades and imagination are dead these days?

Pop GO Celebrates “Reader Appreciation Week”!

populationgo:

In honor of all of the readers who has helped Pop GO surpass the 10,000 follower mark, we will be dedicating all of next week, starting Monday, Dec. 5th until Friday, Dec. 9th, to all of the wonderful geeks and otaku who have made it possible!

Compared to the more prominent blogs on Tumblr, 10,000 may not be that big of a number. But to a humble geek site like ours, it is beyond anything we have ever imagined. Pop GO wouldn’t be where it is today without the continued love and support that our readers have shown us the past year. Therefore, next week is all for YOU.

In addition to a few prize giveaways and contests, we will also be giving our readers the opportunity to be interviewed and featured in our Hi 5 segment.

Hit the break to find out how!
