It’s the “Pop Life” Talkshow!

Anil Dash

Welcome to Pop Life, a weekly interview series with some of the most interesting people shaping (or reshaping) culture. Pop Life is like a podcast, but in a live text chat instead of audio. Each week, you’ll be able to join in live and submit questions for our guests to answer in realtime.

Join us.

Pop Life happens every Tuesday at 1pm Eastern Time/10am Pacific. You can follow along on the web, but to ask questions or participate in the live show, you’ll need to download the free Talkshow from the App Store. Talkshow is a new format, kind of like texting in public, and Pop Life is designed to use this new format to show us different sides of these guests than we’d discover through a regular audio podcast or a standard print interview.

About Pop Life

Pop Life is hosted by me, Anil Dash. I’m excited to team up with the nice people at Talkshow to make this possible. (I’m also an advisor to their company, but I’d be doing this show regardless.)
