Led by journalists from Newsarama, PanelXPanel, The Hollywood Reporter, Crunchyroll, and elsewhere, Popverse works by writing simultaneously for two distinct groups: casual fans looking for videos and stories about their favorite things (and what could be their next favorite thing), and ardent experts who is looking for deeper dives and original reporting on industry stories that others don't generally cover. Here at ECCC, Popverse editor-in-chief Chris Arrant will be explaining what Popverse is, and how it sits inside ReedPop and the larger pop culture environment - and why its where your next potential customer is heading.
