Hi there, ladies and gents; welcome to Episode 27 of Stacey's Pop Culture Parlour! Joining Stacey in The Parlour this month is her good friend and fellow nerd; Paul Richardson!
Stacey and Paul get their teeth into a heck of a lot of stuff this episode, including reviews of MULP: Sceptre of the Sun, Indestructable Hulk, Broad City, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and much more!
Of course, they espouse their opinions on Captain America: Winter Soldier, but Stacey's insanely huge love of the Ninja Turtles distracts them from finishing their thoughts on that one! (In case you're interested; Bucky was amazing, Batroc was so tits he needed to be in it tons more and basically the film is TOPS.)
So grab a drink, a slice of cake (or a hot cross bun), and enjoy this month's Pop Culture Parlour!

Welcome one and all to Episode 26 of Stacey's Pop Culture Parlour; the podcast best served with tea and cake!
Hold onto your Battenbergs, ladies and gents, as Stacey brings yet another slice of awesome to The Parlour: none other than comic writer extraordinnaire; Kelly Sue DeConnick! For those who have been living under a rock for the past YONKS, Kelly Sue is the mastermind behind Captain Marvel (which, if you aren't reading, then you are missing out on one of Marvel's best comics right now), Pretty Deadly (which is stunning, so hop to it guys!) and loads more besides.
After some technical issues, the ladies get down to it and talk about nigh on everything, including the economics of comics, how much Emma Rios absolutely rules, David Bowie, having breakfast for dinner, reproduction Grease 2-style and much, much more!

Happy birthday to me! It's Stacey's Pop Culture Parlour's 2nd birthday, and to celebrate Stacey is joined by not one but two lovely gentlemen; Jamie Smart and John-Paul Bove!
Now, in case you're some sort of crazy person and don't know who these wonderful people are; John-Paul Bove is the writer for Panini UK's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic, and the colourist on many, many comics, most notably IDW's Transformers and Jamie is the bonkers mind that created such wonders as Chaffy, Looshkin, Ubu Bubu, Space Raoul and much more! The lads join Stacey (separately, of course; Stacey's technological prowess is not quite prowess-y enough for multiple guests at once!) to talk about all sorts of things, such as conventions and social awkwardness, fishcakes, spoilers, working, colouring, keeping secrets and...spoon shankings?!
So sit back, grab a slice of cheesecake and enjoy this extra-long super-fun episode of Stacey's Pop Culture Parlour!
On a serious note, HUGE thanks to those of you who listen and support this little podcast; I really appreciate every single one of you! Here's to plenty more birthday specials in the future!

What's this now; another episode of Stacey's Pop Culture Parlour, less than a week after the last? What the deuce?!
Well, ladies and gents, Stacey had the honour of speaking to an absolute legend and couldn't resist sharing the results with you as soon as humanly possible! You might remember him from such things as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Biker Mice From Mars, The Mask, Animaniacs, Pinky & the Brain and SQUILLIONS more besides; it's the one and only, voice actor extraordinaire and all-round bloody lovely bloke, Rob Paulsen!
Join Rob and Stacey as they talk about all things voice acting, and even more besides! From the perils of the internet to a mutual love of John Williams, voicing not one but two Ninja Turtles and getting paid to make weird grunting noises, this is a must hear episode!
Enjoy! Oh, and... NARF!

Hey guys, Stacey here! Just to get all serious and sappy here; I have to thank Rob again (I will probably never stop thanking him, you know) for taking the time from his busy schedule not only to talk to little old me, but also to make me feel so entirely comfortable, and leave me smiling from ear to ear post interview. He is a tip top chap and I honestly feel hugely lucky to have had the chance to chat with him. I hope you all enjoy the show, and I apologise for the loudness of my mic; it was new and I haven't quite get the hang of it yet!

Welcome to the 24th installment of Stacey's Pop Culture Parlour! This month, The Parlour is graced with the presence of super-intelligent, Comic Book Outsider and all-round top notch gent, Scott Grandison! Beware, here be spoilers...
Stace and Scott get underway by discussing the latest series of Sherlock at quite great length! After coming to the conclusion that they are both firmly in the category of 'Cumberbitches', Stace and Scott sink their teeth in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Almost Human, Twilight Zone #1 and much more!
So grab a tea and your choice of biscuit and enjoy Episode 24 of Stacey's Pop Culture Parlour!

We wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! That's right, it's Christmastime, and what better way to celebrate than with a nice scrummy portion of tasty podcast goodness?
This episode of The Parlour sees Stacey joined by returning guest and person-still-willing-to-share-a-hotel-room-with-Stacey; Jenni Newman! The ladies recall their experiences at Thought Bubble Comic Con in Leeds last month, chatting about their nerves approaching the Gods and Goddesses of Comicdom, their purchases, sharing a hotel room, and the highlights of the con. Also contains a somewhat spoilery review of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special (can you say HELL YEAH?!) and a lot of gushing about Jamie Smart's Kochi Wanaba hardback.
Stacey and Jenni also get all festive up in here, naming their Top 3 Christmas Films! So grab a nice hot chocolate (or a mulled wine, if you're feeling properly festive), a wedge of Christmas pud (or, if like Stacey you hate the fruits involved in a Christmas pud, a slice of Yule log) and enjoy this latest installment of Stacey's Pop Culture Parlour!

PS. Hello, Stacey here to say 2 things;
1. Once again I have to apologise for some technical issues; I actually did quite well editing out the zillion-and-one times one of us lost audio entirely and we had to drop the call, but there are still some weird things going on. Occasionally it skips bits of our sentences, and we lose sound on Jenni once or twice, and I apologise. I reckon it's Skynet trying to sabotage me...
2. MERRY CHRISTMAS! Thank you to all those who choose to spend their spare time listening to me and my buddies ramble about the things we do/read/see/listen to; I am very thankful for every single listener, and I hope you all have a fun, safe, happy, pressie-filled Christmas, and all the best for the New Year! Have fun and be merry, y'all!!

During the massive chat-fest that is episode 22, Stacey and Lee review Gravity, The Walking Dead, Night of the Doctor, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Attack on Titan and loads, loads more!
So grab a nice hot beverage, a slice of your favourite cake, and curl up by the fireplace with the latest episode of The Parlour!

Ladies and gentleman, welcome to another episode of Stacey's Pop Culture Parlour! This month, Stacey is joined by the utterly lovely Brenda, of Geektress fame! Be prepared for tangents galore as Stace and Brenda get their talk on about all things pop culture.
Expect ruminations on (and most likely massive spoilers for) the Dexter finale, Sleepy Hollow, Hunger Games (both books and movie), How I Met Your Mother, World's End and...bear epidemics?!
So grab a slice of your favourite cake (I highly recommend Battenburg) and enjoy this installment of pop culture babbling!

Oh hello there! Welcome to the twentieth installment of Stacey's Pop Culture Parlour; the podcast about all the jazz you want to hear about, best served with tea and cake! Making his return to the Parlour this episode is Matt Davis; you may remember him from the episode in which you couldn't hear a word he said... Well, thankfully this time around you can hear him clear as bell, and boy do we ramble!
Listen in as Stacey and Matt discuss the casting for Doctor Who, upcoming Marvel and DC movies, Knightfall, Guardians of the Galaxy, World War Z and...football?!
All that and more in this glorious-sounding episode of the Pop Culture Parlour!

Welcome to Stacey's Pop Culture Parlour, where tea, cakes and rambling go hand in hand for an hour or so for your audio enjoyment. Joining Stacey in the cyber-parlour this episode is the utterly dreamy Stevie Disme from Comic Book Queers! Be prepared for a lot of man-oggling, guys...
As well as a ton of dribbling-over-comic-hotties, you can also expect talk on Nickelodeon's first series of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Pacific Rim, Trillium #1, The Wolverine, appropriate behaviour at comic cons and much much more!
So please, grab a mini Battenburg and enjoy this latest installment!

These little apology footnotes are getting to be a bit too frequent... Ahem, guys, I would like to extend my humblest apologies for the following;
1. To Stevie himself, for fudging up the time difference between his bit of the US and my bit of the UK, causing him to be hanging about waiting for me for far too long; you're a star for waiting for me!
2. To all you lovely listeners for the technical issues at the start of the episode; there's some skipping/crackling, then a whole chunk missing; I lack technical prowess and couldn't fix it, sorry
3. And finally, not so much an apology as an admission; like a div I kept referring to this episode as episode 18, when it is clearly 19. I blame Stevie for distracting me with his luscious dulcet tones!
Whilst I have you here, myself and some lady-buddies are doing a 10k Memory Walk for Alzheimer's Society in September; please go to www.justgiving.com/stacebobandfriends and give anything you can. It's a great cause, and incredibly appreciated.
