The Real Pod assembles to dissect the week in New Zealand pop culture and real life, with special thanks to Nando’s.
This week on The Real Pod, the team dissect the horror of Troy on Married at First Sight Australia, potentially the worst ever tuna-monster in the history of reality television. We also learn that our local celebrities are a lot like us hoi polloi. Toni Street has an embarrassing changing room story, John Key shops at Countdown and Zac Franich and Erin Simpson went to the basketball just like Duncan did.
Beyond that, we relive the funniest local television moment of the year so far, get swindled by a Lewis Road breakfast milk scandal, and award a hearty Nando’s meal to Mike Puru for a very solid Twitter gag.
