Shacknews was crazy enough to give Donovan and Greg their own show, tune in!


If you’re familiar with Shacknews, you know that 2020 has seen us livestreaming more than ever before. With most of us spending considerably more time at home, Twitch has been a great way for us to stay connected with our awesome community. Today, we’re excited to debut a brand new show. Pop! Goes the Culture! is a new discussion show centered around the going on in the world of popular culture. Hosted by Contributing Editor Donovan Erskine and Video Editor Greg Burke, the show looks at the most interesting stories not only in video games, but movies, TV, comics, and more. 

Pop! Goes the Culture! will go live every week on Thursday, at 1 p.m. PT / 4 p.m. ET. Join us for our inaugural episode today at that same time over on the Shacknews Twitch channel. Or, feel free to stay right here and watch the stream on Shacknews. We’ve got a fun show planned for today, covering a diverse range of topics.
