Stop Everything!


Event Status

Stop Everything! is the ABC pop-culture podcast that’s become a phenomenon in its own right. In addictive weekly episodes, co-hosts Beverley Wang and Benjamin Law press pause on the zipping zeitgeist to turn a critical eye on the big moments in culture and entertainment: from Get Krack!n to the Met Gala to the Game of Thrones finale.

In September, they’ll join us for a live recording of the show devoted especially to the theme of pop-culture confessions. With guests Joel Creasey and Lawrence Leung, Beverley and Benjamin will divulge their surprising and possibly disgusting guilty pop-culture pleasures.  

You’re invited to share yours, too. Blind Date? Father Brown? Top Gear? Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club? It’s a safe space (you absolute monster) so disclose your true trash entertainment loves and enjoy the greasy collective embrace of your fellow filthbags.

Divulge your pop-culture guilty pleasures (anonymously or not) via our online form here – or arrive early to disclose your disgrace in our dedicated confession booth on the night.

Drinks available for purchase at the event.
