The Real Pod: A shark ate a mince pie… à la Troy

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, Jane returns to the hosting chair and Duncan and Alex couldn’t be more relieved. We look at an exciting and delicious incident involving a shark and a pie, take a look at a lawyer turned clown doctor, and check in with Duncan’s evolving relationship with Haydn from Married at First Sight NZ (status: it’s complicated).

In reality TV news, The Champagne Lady is getting her own hit TV show on Face TV, Nasser continues to seep bad vibes on Married at First Sight Aus and the Max Key Dancing With the Stars rumours continue to froth away. Beyond that, we find another rogue pooper and ask one crucial question: does a sink need to be cleaner for a baby or a salad? It’s The Real Pod, and it’s too real.
