    Sorry for the separate Pocket God email but this is sort of exciting news for us. one of our best friends is living with Jackie Martling who used to be the head writer for the Howard Stern show and we are currently working on an app for him.

    Anyway, since we are at #2 and it will be hard to beat iDracula because its such an awesome game, he is going to help us out by promoting Pocket God on his show tonight. If you have Sirius, please listen and if you have the energy, call in. This is a huge deal for us because both Allan and I are huge Jackie and Howard Stern fans. When the Jackie Button comes out, I might even get a chance to go on the show with him to promote it.

    4:00 Pacific and 7:00 eatern, tonight in about 20 minutes.

    Anywhere we can listen to this on the web?

    If not, will you record the audio for us to hear later on?

    I'll try and get a tape of it, I think I can get it from jackie. to listen on the web though, you need a sirius subscription.

    and I'm not sure if I can put it in a public place, so I would only be able to send it to people via PM.

    Huge Stern fan over here.

    I was at the rally when he had his last show at K-ROCK.

    You'll shoot to #1 for sure now.

    And "lives with Jackie"? WTF? Is Jackie that hard up now? ;)

    It was awesome, at the start of the show, he told a story of how he came over to our house for new years eve about 3 years ago and clogged up the toilet that sits near the place where everyone was hanging out.

    Then he really talked up pocket god and the fact that we have the Joke button that is almost done, his show partner Ian sounded like he had played the game which was really cool to hear.

    Then he gave us 3 more shout outs during the show, and a really big plug at the end. It was awesome!

    I'm going to try and get the tape and see if I can post segments of it on the blog.

    I asked him to do it literally as he was late and running to the studio from his condo, He accidently flubbed my last name (said Dave Bolt instead of Dave Castelnuovo) but its all good, just as long as the word gets out.


    It will be interesting if we see a spike or if it pushes us. I have been getting a lot of youtube reviews asking for promo codes in the last half hour, more than usual.

    Actually, Jackie's also going to go on the Joey Reynold's show between 12-3 EST tonight, he's going to mention the game. I guess it's a nationally syndicated show and it's available online on the WOR website.

    We owe Jackie such a solid for all this promotion that he is doing for us. We couldnt be happier.

    btw, I will still do the official jump the shark thread tonight. Just trying to get some stuff done before starting it.
