That's right guys, it's that time of year again! This February sees Stacey's Pop Culture Parlour celebrate it's 3rd birthday (cor blimey!) and as per usual there's a big old bundle of birthday fun here for you to enjoy!
Joining Stacey in The Parlour for a slice of birthday cake and a spot of chinwaggery are two delightful gents; Pat Loika and Shaun Steven Struble! If you don't know either of these top notch fellas (where have you been?!), now's a good time to get to know them.
Pat was recently heralded as the comic book industry's greatest sidekick in a Buzzfeed article, and they're not wrong! Whether it's through writing and drawing himself, convention attendance and photography, working with Comixology or just reading a ton of comics and watching a load of films, Pat is very much immersed in the nerdy world of pop culture. Who better to chat with then on such topics as conventions and cosplay, what was wrong with the Civil War storyline, the latest Spider-Man news, Batman vs Superman and more! Also find out why Stacey hates the First Avenger, how Pat got into comics, and the pairs thoughts on *that* Fantastic Four teaser...
If you're new to The Parlour, you might not know that Stacey is a HEWGE fan of Image's tip-top comic "L'il Depressed Boy". Imagine her surprise, excitement and social-anxiety-terror when it's writer, the rather splendid Shaun Steven Struble, popped by The Parlour to talk all things nerdy! Hear more about why L'il Depressed Boy is so great, why meeting famous people is simultaneously wonderful and horrendous, how song lyrics can be completely bamboozling, and more! Stacey shares her thoughts on the new Ghostbusters line up, Shaun shares the origins of LDB and suggestions are made on how best to deal with topless rappers... Also, beards!
Hope you all enjoy this whacking great slice of birthday goodness!

Hey gang, Stacey here! I'd just like to say a little apology to you lovely listeners and to Mr. Struble; I have no idea why but either Skype or Pretty May pitched a bit of a hissy fit during his recording, and so some bits are a bit jumpy and weird, and some bits had to be sliced out completely. I think what's left in there makes sense (mostly) and it's still a pretty great chat, but apologies for the sound and the missing segments. S x
