The Real Pod: Evidently, fear is not a factor for Heartbreak Island

Screenshot 2018-06-19 at 4.32.33 PM

The Real Pod assembles to dissect the week in New Zealand pop culture and real life, with special thanks to Nando’s.

This week on The Real Pod, we’ve infiltrated the Radio Live studio to deliver you yet another week of reality TV recappery. Dancing With the Stars NZ is getting down to the wire with group dancing, bare feet, and a lot of bad music. Survivor NZ continues to deliver as many blindsides as it does tuna feasts, and Heartbreak Island has folded Fear Factor into its 400-show format.

Beyond that, we look at the shocking truth about brussel sprout growth, taste some delicious hot dogs and express outrage at the fact that people get paid for doing a job. It’s The Real Pod, and it’s real as heck.

'We knew that potentially it could be an incomplete or unfinished story arc and that the end of the story might well be Scribe's vanished again.'
