Lydia Poulteney holds a Bachelor of Arts in Film Theory and Practice from the University of Kent. As a former British Airways Air Hostess, Lydia has traveled the world, exploring new countries as well as gaining the confidence to communicate with people of all backgrounds, from the royal family to Elvis impersonators in Las Vegas. She, along with her fiance James Hicks, created the YouTube channel, The Simpsons Theory, in 2020. The Simpsons Theory was built with the aim to create a virtual love-letter to the show that provided a slice of escapism during Lydia and James' childhoods (every night at 6pm) as well integrating itself into their adult lives. With age, they are now able to understand underlying jokes and references, giving them a new respect for the creators and comedy in general. They have loved hearing the stories of fans across the globe, as well as gaining recognition from actual Simpsons creators! These include Matt Selman, Bill Oakley, Rob Oliver, Jefferson Weekley and more.
