Popternative initially began as a podcast in September, 2015. Hosted by Peter Roumeliotis, guests from the sports, social media and entertainment industry joined the host each week and engaged in a digital dialogue about various issues and topics. Popternative‘s main quest has always been, and remains, to provide our viewers/listeners with behind-the-scenes digital discussions that they would otherwise have a hard time locating.

Today, the podcast has evolved with featured one-on-one interviews, as well as panels that are no longer only available through video outlets. Currently, Popternative receives 2,000-2,500 views/listens each week across all of our platforms. These include: YouTube, Soundcloud, iTunes, Tunein, SpotifyStitcher, Libsyn and Facebook.

All episodes can be downloaded to listen to on-the-go here
