Episode 28. Selena Coppock of Two Wick Minimum

“Standup comedian, writer, and candlehead Selena Coppock talks with guests about their individual candle journeys, including candle stories, favorite scents and #wickpics.

Who doesn’t like a candle burning away on their desk, on the kitchen table or while you’re having a bath?!

Well, maybe the last one is more of a required taste but very few people would say they dislike candles – surely…

The right scent, the right size, the right jar, lots of accessories – there’s a lot to take into consideration these days, not least with countless lifestyle brands now diving into the world of waxy wonders.

But even though candle selection is a serious thing, our guest – Selena Coppock – doesn’t take things TOO seriously, mainly because she’s a standup comedian and all-around giggler at life.

Selena’s premise for Two Wick Minimum is to interview her friends, many in the entertainment world, about their love of candles and what scents they love/hate and the memories that specific candles create.

The podcast is a riotous listen at times but, actually, also pretty useful if you’re looking for a new scent to buy or avoid.

Selena joins us for our latest episode, to share a story or two about the show and her take on what’s hot or not in the candle universe.
