The Real Pod: Loving romance and loving love with Sam Cable from The Block NZ

realpodfeat

Jane Yee and Duncan Greive are joined by a very special guest, Sam Cable, one of last year’s winners of The Block NZ and a man with at least $200,000 sitting in his bank account.

Duncan and Jane went full Blockaholic this week with special guest Sam Cable, 2016 winner of The Block NZ, and a block of Caramilk chocolate. Using the immense power of the sponsorless podcast, the pair help Sam put the call out for a new flatmate. Ever dreamed of living with Sam and Emmett from the Block? For a mere $300 a week, you can.

Sam then goes on to spill the beans about almost every aspect of reality television including how to ruin a shot after you’ve said something bad, whether or not the winnings are taxed, and why his favourite phrase “I just love love” was never included in the final cut.

Warning: this episode contains an obscene amount of Dominos chat as Duncan learns that Sam designed his local Dominos Pizza joint and proceeds to pitch his life away in an effort to secure a carb sponsor.

Behind the scenes of Scribe’s new documentary

'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.'
