Ben Fertig - Blithe and Bonny Eucalyptus Mint Candle
After an 8 month hiatus, Selena is finally back to entertain her beloved candle friends with hilarious, silly candle conversation and hot takes about wholly uncontroversial topics. This week she is joined by L.A. resident, comedian, and fellow Hamilton alum Ben Fertig who did not come to play. Ben mentions some high-end hits (Maison Louis Marie, Creed, PF Candle Company, Le Labo, Blithe and Bonny), the value of trays in home decor, and the sentimental value of candles.
Lauren Maul - SLOW BURN
This week, Selena sits down with her friend, the uber-talented Lauren Maul, to discuss an unlit candle as a life unlived, Lauren's brief tenure as a wax experimenter, and the hard truths about beeswax candles. They swoon over SLOW BURN, a glorious candle from country superstar Kacey Musgraves (named after her gorgeous, moody song) and discuss Dylan McKay's wick. (music: bensound.com)
Jeremy Glass - Discount Aisle Candles
This week, Selena sits down with her first-ever straight, white, male guest, writer and self-described "candle boy," Jeremy Glass. Jeremy's candle journey started young and he is a lifelong member of Team Vanilla, much to Selena's shock and horror. Jeremy is about to become a father to a baby girl and he can't wait to teach her all about candles. (music: bensound.com)

Plus, Shawn secures a spot on Two Wick Minimum: All Stars. (Music by Bensound.)

Thank god for this
I love candles so much and it never occurred to me how much I needed to hear people talk about candles until my candle-loving friend recommended this pod to me. Selena is so funny and has such a great podcast voice and her guests are great too. Love hearing what she has to say about non-candle things too. Highly recommend!!
Everything I didn’t know I needed
Love love love this podcast!! I had no idea I was so naive about the greater candle community, but Selena balances ridiculous satire & genuine love of the finer things in life beautifully. I’ve been thinking about my candle journey in anticipation of season 2, and I gotta say, it explains a lot 😅
Finally a Podcast for Candleheads
Love this podcast! Selena is such a great host, effortlessly blending comedy with a true respect for the personal journey of candle lovers! Subscribed!
