We hope everyone is having a fun holiday season! (Yes we know that traffic is a mess, our relatives think we’re gaining weight, and we’re all very nearly broke — but still! Happy thoughts.)
In the spirit of positivity and geeky fun that costs nothing, we (Tania and Mina) are resurrecting a thing we used to do — the podcast about fun and geeky stuff. Welcome to the Five By Five podcast, where we talk about the things we love. It’s not just any ol’ podcast — it’s a LIVE one. Yes, the Five By Five podcast will be streamed live on YouTube, and will be available after the broadcast on our YouTube channel so if you miss the live airing, you can still listen to it (and make your friends listen to it) anytime.
Tune in on Thursday, December 26, 7:30 to 8:00 PM Manila Time (GMT +8). As our YouTube channel isn’t live-stream capable yet, we’ll be airing our first few eps on another channel, but we’ll post the link to this episode here just before we go live.
- Geeking out – Mina talks about the new television show “Reign” and Tania geeks out about an anime with creatures that are zombies but not exactly zombies.
- Awesome new thing to try out this week
- Author interview: Kate Evangelista, author of young adult novels Taste, Reaping Me Softly, and Savor.
- We answer your Twitter questions (use hashtag #5x5podcast).
- Arrow moment – How do we feel about Barry Allen/The Flash, are Oliver’s abs threatened?
- Your Tweet must include the hashtag #5x5podcast.
- Make sure your tweet doesn’t begin with a “@”. If you’d like to tag Kate or the hosts, put @kateevangelista (or @minavesguerra or @taniaarpa) in the middle or end of your tweet. However, just including the hashtag #5x5podcast will suffice.
- No spoilers for Savor!
- No spam! Only podcast- and topic-related comments and questions, please. And only questions for Kate will be eligible for the prize (but we’d love to hear from you about the podcast topics or anything else geeky).
- You may be from anywhere to join, but we can only ship the prize to an address in the Philippines.
- Your question must be tweeted before or during Kate’s live interview, questions tweeted after that are no longer eligible for the prize.
Tania and I will post the link to the live broadcast on Twitter just before we go live, so don’t forget to follow us at @minavesguerra and @TaniaArpa. You can also get the link to the live broadcast by visiting this post. Catch you guys on Thursday!
