…For our members.
It’s one of the many perks for being a Pulptown+ member.
Last week, we gave them early access to our procrastinator’s guide to Orlando’s 2020 general election, the week before, there was a members-only giveaway to win a Steven Madow print of a rocket launch over Exploria Stadium. Next week, they’ll play another round of I Spy for bragging rights and newsletter shoutouts.
Look, we know times are tough right now (If you ever want to talk about it, we can wine and Zoom 🍷). But if you’re down to support this dream of ours, we’d love to have you. It’s $8 a month to join as a Pulptown+ member, and in addition to the perks above, you’ll also get our sincerest gratitude.
