The Real Pod returns, late but not never, with a lot of bum talk and a similar amount of trash talk.
This week arrived late on The Real Pod thanks to Jane’s colonoscopy, a frightening event she describes in great detail on this week’s pod. We also discuss the combination of vitriol and silence which greeted The Spinoff’s story on 7 Days’ gender imbalance, and the even greater fury coming from TV writer and sourdough fan Gavin Strawhan toward Duncan.
The episode is tinged with sadness, however, as Duncan and Jane tearfully farewell Alex, who’s flying to Europe like her spiritual guru Anne the Champagne Lady to drink wine and potter about. We sent her off right though, with the return of Max Key corner, an update on Simon Barnett’s 2019 career plans, a lotato update… and the outrageous news that we’re giving away a freaking hardout fancy and expensive Huawei phone! For details you literally have to listen to the pod, but we have contrived a real funny and dumb entry mechanism and we’re bloody excited to see what you do with it.
