X Factor NZ: After the Factor Podcast – Hey Now, Hey Now, Don’t Dream it’s Over

The brave final three Nic Sampson, Joseph Moore and Eli Mathewson dissect the finale of X Factor NZ, and celebrate the triumphs of beatboxing Beau.

Topics covered include the darker message behind Beau’s winning single, how the series has changed them and their facial hair, and how the X Factor is like global warming. Looking towards the future seasons (there won’t be any), the team predict that Lou Bega and Nikki Webster take the judges tables by storm, and the new contestants will include beatboxers and big-eyed kids.
