Daily 411: How to be a reddit superstar

The 411 is your daily dose of news relating to online culture! And boy, if you’ve ever wondered about how to make it as a reddit superstar, check out redditor undian. It was recently revealed that his IRL identity is Ben Eisenkor and he’s a biogeochemist (try saying that three times fast!). This excerpt actually speaks volumes about where he found his popularity: “Clearly, the thousands showering his posts with upvotes shows that redditors in the site’s biggest communities aren’t just looking for the latest meme, funny GIF, or cringe-worthy pun. Substance, it seems, will make you a star.

I'm a journalist, producer and host who thought I would get into "traditional" broadcasting until the lusty call of the Internet drew me in. I've been fortunate enough to have launched 10 web series about a wide range of niches, like: Greek culture, Wines, India and Battlestar Galactica (BSGcast FTW!). But these days I love being one-half of Nat&Marie, exploring Internet Culture and dissecting how the web affects IRL and vice versa. Instagram's my vice and Technoviking is my home boy!

    Awesome. Also I had no idea you hosted a web series on Battlestar Galactica. I am so obsessed with that show.

    erinpeaa You didn’t? Ya!! Matt and I hosted a BSG aftershow for a few years and we got to host #Frack parties in Las Vegas and Pasadena. Stars from the show came out to them. They were epic! Oh, those were the days 🙂
