The Real Pod: Puckerlips and Lily conspire to get The Bachelor NZ back from the dead

Jane Yee, Duncan Greive and Alex Casey gather around the oval table and talk about the latest happenings in New Zealand television and real life in New Zealand.

This week’s episode is notable for Alex emerging from a flu coma to valiantly attempt to record a podcast. Jane and Duncan are operating on about five hours’ sleep between them so it had all the makings of a disaster. Luckily the Bachelor woke up from its sleepwalk and is now looking like a classic season. We talk a bit about Lorde impersonators and No Lights No Lycra (a movement Alex is apparently a part of?!) and Max Key corner is on. But this week, it was all about the Bach.
