From the Super Mario Wiki
“This is Podley's Place, a humble little cola shop where folks mix stories and drinks.”
Podley is the proprietor of Podley's Place, a soda bar in Rogueport. It is likely that he came from the Beanbean Kingdom and brought his supply of Chuckola Cola with him to Rogueport. As a result, many residents of Rogueport are frequent visitors. Podley is the one to reveal to Mario that Admiral Bobbery's depression is a result of his wife's death and why he refused to sail another day. After explaning the whole sad story of the Admiral's past, Podley then says to Mario to give Bobbery his wife's final words, because when Podley tried to do it, he stopped after seeing Bobbery in a miserable state of mind.
