Real Pod #21: ploughing through Survivor NZ and a whole lotta Shapes

Jane Yee, Duncan Greive and special guest Mad Chapman gather around Jane’s table to talk about the latest happenings in New Zealand television and real life in New Zealand feat. Survivor correspondent Joseph Harper.

With Alex Casey waltzing through Paris eating baguettes in a beret, Duncan and Jane ushered Mad the producer into the limelight. It was a night of a thousand, or maybe just 15, snacks, all of which were Shapes. Far too much time was spent grossly chewing on mic and ranking the five original flavours of Shapes, which probably reveals something about each of our psyches but we’re not sure what. Saunter on over to our Facebook page for a chance to win the full Shapes set for yourself.

Duncan also speaks to Joseph Harper (featuring some great broadcasting transitions) about the best and the worst of Survivor New Zealand‘s debut season. Is it better than New Zealand’s Next Top Model or The Bachelor NZ? Back in the studio we ponder the poor execution on The Block NZ last week and the potential jackpot of having America’s Cup winner Blair Tuke as out next Bachelor. Bonus: Jane accidentally delivers a sick burn on her favourite person Mama Chapman aka Mad’s mum.
