The good news is that The Real Pod team are back to talk some guff about reality TV and real life in New Zealand. The better news is that Mayor Phil Goff is listening (?).
This week on The Real Pod, we continue our hot streak as The Spinoff’s most hard-hitting political podcast by doing the macarena a la Paula Bennett on the National bus. We also recap Bill English’s second Snapchat takeover and check in with Max Key, who is following a girl into the woods for some reason. In another political poll-quake, Paleo Pete might have actually said something not entirely stupid when he told the world they were pooing wrong.
In other news: do you ever feel like a plastic bag? Jane certainly doesn’t, as she continues to bring us all on the tumultuous journey that is her plastic bag free Countdown trial. Duncan recounts being in the crowd for Newshub’s leaders’ debate, the gang tackle the bullying of the Twins on The Block NZ, and Alex has another McDonald’s nightmare. We also prepare for our meeting with Phil Goff, Mayor of Auckland. If that doesn’t sound like good podcast content then we don’t know what is.
