What is Potaku? It’s a community driven podcast featuring members of the Kotaku community, and it’s a podcast you can get involved with (or just listen to). I’ll leave it to my main homie ShiggyNinty, co-founder of the podcast to explain.
Websters Dictionary defines “Potaku” as…well they don’t have a definition. But Urban Dictionary defines “Potaku” as ‘A poor Otaku’. Not uh…not really the best definition of what the show is about. Actually it’s about the worst definition I could find, the ONLY definition I could find. This writing thing is hard, why couldn’t you write this Mark? You have the skills and I have the sexy looks, that was the deal and now I’m writing this?! NOT COOL OLD MAN SERRELS NOT COOL.
Anyway! Potaku is the first and best* Kotaku Australia Podcast out! Every week myself, Doc What and two community members will talk about games, community stuff and generally be idiots, something I’m pretty accustomed to.
On our first episode we have the lovely Doc What, DAN! and The Last Question on, discussing everything from meats, new games and Max Payne 3 (Spoiler: I am the only one who talks about Max Payne 3).
Being a community podcast, we’d love to hear your feedback, suggestions on segments, your community news, playdates, meats and ideas for a song for the week! Get in contact with us through email or Twitter!
Don’t be afraid to join us either! This podcast is for you guys and gals! After an episode is finished recording I will put the call out on Twitter for volunteers and usually it will be on a first come, first serve basis. Do not worry about having “gamer knowledge” or having a lack of it, that’s not what this show is about, it’s about getting the community involved, talking more and becoming Super Best Friends!
Download, share and listen because we had a blast doing this! Hope you enjoy the show!
