Behind The Scenes at Pop17


Pop17 is a two-to-three minute daily exploration to track, analyze and understand the new cultural phenomenon of online micro-celebrity.
TechCrunch, Virgin America and Perkett PR sponsor the show.
The show’s host, Sarah Austin has an extensive Wikipedia entry. The sentence on Wikipedia that got my attention is: In the tradition of Paul Krassner, she sometimes combines legitimate news coverage with personal journalism and prankster activities.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. After working for seven agencies in five states and freelancing for several more, I ventured out on my own in 2009. Today, as head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon, I'm focused on providing effective integrated marketing solutions to mid-market clients.
