Ep 12: Weekender Files - Jim McDonald

Welcome to episode 12 of The Popko Project podcast where I’m joined by the man, the myth, the legend, Jim McDonald. Jim is the guy who started the Weekender publication back in 1993.

For those of you who don’t know, the Weekender back in the day was THE BIBLE when it came to arts and entertainment in Northeastern, Pennsylvania.

Jim tells us how it all started, why he left, Condom Man, a Weekender expansion that never came to fruition, where he is today, and more! And what I really got from this conversation is to always be optimistic, take chances, and when someone tells you you can’t, prove them wrong. I’m honored that he took the time to be a guest as part of this series called Weekender Files. It would not be the same without the man who started it all.

These episodes dubbed “Weekender Files” take a look back at past employees reflecting on how they started at the Weekender, what the Weekender meant to them, memories, the ups, the downs and where they are today.
