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 which serves Chuckola Cola. His appearance bears a resemblance to the Beanish, but he's not confirmed to be a member of the species. Having lived in Rogueport for a long time, Podley knows much about the townsfolk. He 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. Podley is also said to have been in love with the Twilight Town resident Eve. However, when Mario takes on her trouble and talks to Podley about this, he claims to know no such person.
