“I feel very fortunate to be a part of pop culture in some weird way,” says Schroeder, the host of the Play.It network podcast Straight Up with Stassi.

The podcast host and pop culture junkie loves the connections she’s making with people through her show.

“When I talk about something, I turn a lot more people onto that certain thing,” Schroeder says.

Nothing is off limits for Schroeder, who covers the hottest new trends on her show. “Whether it’s chic trends, wacky trends… I don’t know, like, hip trends. Anything that’s sweeping the nation.”

Being in-the-know all the time sounds like it can get overwhelming. So how does Stassi take the edge off? With martinis, of course. But not just any martini. Stassi makes hers with a secret ingredient that tastes great and makes you feel good.

“Anything that people are talking about, I like to talk about. And that is why I feel like Zespri Kiwitinis are gonna be, like, iiiiit.”
