Tracks

Oriana Schneps from Below Deck Adventure!
• Oriana Schneps couldn’t have been more professional, kind and fun to chat with. She teases that there is some upcoming drama between her and her cast mates. The thing we don’t really see with Oriana in the show is that she’s actually a genius! Biomedical Degree, startups under the belt, etc. we talk favourites, how she ended up back in yachting, we played some games, we touched on why everyone seemed to dislike Kyle so much… and more. I hope y’all like the interview… • Follow me on Instagram @popoffwithjames @belowdeckaboveaverage @itsjamespike @belowdeckadventure and you can watch the video version on YouTube @popoffwithjames. New episode every Wednesday!

Georgia Rose from season 1 of Below Deck Sailing Yacht!
• You gotta love this little streak of Sailing Yacht crew I got going on! Georgia was just a pure delight to have on! She came prepared with never before heard tea (She was supposed to be on BDSY season 2 AND 3?!), she gave us everything we could want from behind the scenes of the first season, we get what she thinks of all the hate Jenna got, the absolute terrible trolling of her body that made her go to the gym, her return to Parsifal with Glenn, Ciara and Paget after the cameras had left and how that went, and she gives us an epic 2 truths and one lie as a game!• Follow me on Instagram @popoffwithjames @belowdeckaboveaverage @itsjamespike and follow Georgia at @07georgiarose.

• This is a half episode because it is an episode compiled of all the juiciest parts of season 1! • We have Katie telling us that Lexi was “throwing the Hannah situation in her face” and more about fateful night at the jacuzzi that didn’t make it to our screens, Zee giving us pure comedy while playing ‘never have I ever’, a hilarious story of me tricking the fans of my page into thinking a photo of me was the new Captain for one of the BD spin-offs and the reaction I got, F-Marry-Kill with the lovely Scarlett Bentley, Dani giving us her very real take about the Ashley/Gary controversy, Heather Chase and the aftermath of Rayna-Gate, Brooke Laughton and the PURE shade toward the crew members on her season “just there to film”, and more!! Please check out season 1 and season 2 episode 3 will be back with a Below Deck crew member guest next Wednesday ❤️• Please give me a rating and check me out on Instagram, YouTube and everywhere you digest your podcast.

Ciara Duggan from season 1 of Below Deck Sailing Yacht
• Ciara from the very first season of Below Deck Sailing stops by Pop-Off! and by golly, she is such a fking sweetheart! I feel so blessed that one of the privileges I get from running my fan page is that I get to meet such lovely people.• We spoke about the interesting story of how she ended up on BDSY, how she’s good friends (and business partners) with new mom Jess More (she was there during Charli’s birth!), the pact and expectations her and her ex Paget had going into filming, her future as a business owner and university student, the disgusting hate she got in her DMs when the show aired, how literal IGUANAS drop from the Florida trees this time of year (What?!), her future (or non future) in Yachting… and more!

Scarlett is just the sweetest damn thing! And so gorge! We had a good chat, she opened up about what it was like joining the show in the middle of the season and the moment she walked onto the boat to everyone just chillin on their bunks, we talk about the dynamic between Ashley Her and Gary, what it was like sharing a bunk with Ashley after going for Gary, we find out her version of what makes Gary the heartthrob he is, she tells us what makes Daisy such a good Chief Stew, what she does in her spare time, a crazy procedure she had done on her lips!, we play F - Marry - “throw overboard” (her answer was actually surprising), and so much more!I seriously adore her, she couldn’t have been sweeter, more down to earth, and chill! Thank you Scarlett!

Brooke Laughton from Below Deck Med Season 3
Love love loved interviewing Brooke! Her season was one of my very favourite from the franchise so it made this return from my one week hiatus that much more special! Brooke really did not hold back! She pulled the curtain on production and gave us the 411 on how they “whisper in your ear” and nudge you to do things, why did she go for Joao?, her recent engagement and then breakup, how she felt about Colin confessing his love for her, how feel felt like it was more like working on a boat with reality stars than it was working with Yachties, and how she feels her and Hannah are similar and how they are different! Follow her on Instagram @brookelaughton

Get to know me, James! By way of interview by Melissa who is the superwoman behind the hit podcast @sidepieceshow.I was always told to start my podcast because "the hardest part is the audience, and you have it already" Melissa would say. So here I am.

(TEST EPISODE - LOW QUALITY) Below Deck Down Under’s Chef Ryan McKeown
... this rustled some feathers lol... This was a banger first episode! Ryan gives us insight into his yachting beginnings, what his very personal tattoos mean to him, what it was like fighting with the captain, and his huge blowout with Aesha. He does not like Aesha lol there was a lot of backlash for this first episode so, I mean, that must means it's juicy right??ps the editing and audio is not 100 percent, it was just my first interview but they do get better
