The publication

Welcome to Pop Goes the City!

Born of the desire to have an honest online destination exclusive to Dallas and Collin counties, Leslie Chatman created and launched Pop Goes the City in the summer of 2011. As a reflection of her life, Pop Goes the City is focused on life and society in Dallas and Collin counties. It serves as a platform for her to share information on events, local businesses, people, shopping, and must-have finds in housewares, accessories, fashion, and beauty.

Leslie loves to talk to people and Pop Goes the City is the perfect outlet to interview local movers and shakers, business owners, and influencers. In turn, she can introduce readers to the people behind the places and things they love most in the metroplex.

Since launching Pop Goes the City, Leslie has had the pleasure of interacting with some amazing people outside of the Dallas area as well. A large majority of the content on Pop Goes the City will be local information. However periodically, she will write about people and things around the web and beyond the metroplex that she thinks North Texans should know about.

In the summer of 2017, Leslie decided to launch the Pop Goes the City podcast as a companion to the online publication. On the podcast, she will interview locals and non locals to discuss various lifestyle and society topics.
