Podcast Announcement: Send Your Topics In!
Next week, June 18-22, we will be having another Reader Appreciation Week! While it may be a little less ambitious and more simple and straightforward this time around, we’ll still provide some goodies for our readers.
Among those goodies is a special podcast loaded with prize giveaways! Familiarize yourself with some of our staff members as they talk about things you want to them to talk about.
Each staff member on the podcast will give their thoughts and opinions on several geeky and otaku-y topics. These topics — every single one of them — will be topics submitted by you, our readers. Not only that, those whose topics get discussed on the podcast will win a pretty cool prize!
Hit the break for more details!
For a chance at getting your topic discussed on our podcast and effectively winning yourself an awesome prize you can:
1) Email your topic to firstname.lastname@example.org. On the subject line write ‘Podcast Topic’ and in the body provide your topic, along with your name and Tumblr handle. If you don’t have a Tumblr, provide your Twitter handle. If you don’t have either, then that’s fine.
2) Submit your topic in our Ask Box.
3) Submit your topic in the comment section below.
One topic per person!
Tips: Send in geeky but creative topics. Also, try to provide broad topics that can be discussed by different people throughout geek and otaku culture. For example: “What’s your favorite anime?” is too medium specific and won’t be able to be answered by the non-anime watchers. “What’s your favorite hobby?” can be answered by anyone!
Keep in mind that a good mix of our staff members will be doing the podcast. Also, each staff member doing the podcast will personally pick a topic to discuss. Whichever topic they each choose, the person who sent in the topic will win that staff member’s prize. Each staff member thinks differently so there’s no telling what sort of topic they’ll favor. All that is certain is that multiple prizes — such as manga, comics, video games, anime and film DVDs — will be given out!
You’ll have all week long to submit a topic. We’ll also publish friendly reminders.
And be sure to catch our special podcast along with other goodies all next week as Population GO celebrates our readers!
