Hey, listen! I’m Stacey, owner of this here Pop Culture Parlour. I’ve always been a bit of a nerd, but really came out of my shell when I first met my now-husband back in 2005. He bought me a Captain America comic, and it was like love at first read. I took to comics like a fish to water, and made my first forray into the world of podcasting soon afterwards, guesting on the rather fabulous Geek Syndicate show as Listener of the Month. (Episodes 41 and 41b, if you fancy listening to my early stage of geekdom!) The following month another nerdy bird made it onto the Syndicate, and listeners decided the pair of us would make a great lady-nerd podcast pairing. And thus, Comic Racks was born! Iz and I quickly hit it off and became swift buddies, attending conventions, interviewing some of our favourite creators and Iz even ended up as one of my bridesmaids!
Unfortunately, after a little over 60 episodes, Iz and I decided to call it a day on Comic Racks, due to general life thingies getting in the way. After a few months without podcasting, I couldn’t contain myself any longer. Although I don’t think my opinions are particularly important, I love podcasting too much to give it up. So, after some gentle cajoling at Thought Bubble Comic Con in 2011, I started getting plans in place to create The Parlour. And the rest, as they say, was history!
Stacey’s Pop Culture Parlour is a monthly podcast on movies, comics, TV, books, video games and music; best served with tea and cake! Each month sees a new guest co-host or interviewee join me in The Parlour for around 90 minutes of reviews, news and rambles on all things pop culture. I’ve been incredibly lucky in that I’ve been able to chat with some wonderful people through The Parlour, such as fellow podcasters, comic creators, voice actors and more. It’s great fun chatting with like-minded people about the things I love, and hopefully you can tell that we’re all having a blast with each episode.

Why not put the kettle on, grab a slice of your favourite cake and check out an episode or two?
