Originally started in 2007, Eagles on Pogo Sticks doubled its writers’ team in spring 2014. The focus of the site remains the same: films, TV, books, comics, games, anything that’s vaguely and specifically (pop-)cultural. The name of the blog is best explained with one of those newfangled movey-soundy picture dealies:

However, that in itself still doesn’t explain who we are and why we do what we do. So, without much further ado, here are the writers, in their own words:


Mege1 has a proper day job, but likes to type away like so many monkeys until there are short stories, novels, plays and screenplays. He also has opinions about movies, books, plays and suchlike and is not afraid to share them. He hails from near Bern, Switzerland.

thirithch loves – sometimes quite indecently so – to have and share opinions about all forms of storytelling, whether it comes in the shape of a book, film, TV series, computer game, stage production or anything else. He even did so for a living until the state of Switzerland decided that there’s something iffy about handing taxpayers’ money to an individual for what he loves doing. He started Eagles on Pogo Sticks as a way to force himself to write more, and so far it seems to be working – but he’s expanded to using the blog to blackmail friends with interesting opinions to contribute their thoughts on a regular basis. Whatever will he think of next?
