The Real Pod: But first, let me take a selfie (biscuit)

The Real Pod assembles to dissect the week in reality television and real life, with special thanks to Nando’s.

This week on the Great Kiwi Bake Off, it’s all about weird biscuits. Savoury biscuits. Mushroomy biscuits. Biscuits about cross fit. Who had the best biscuit art of them all? Why is Trev so good? And how cool is Louise’s secret ramen shop? All this, and the key to the perfect macaron (it’s all in the feet).

Beyond that, we’ve got a lot of Real News to get through. The Spinoff Book launch was a huge hit and basically became an all-night Colin’s Cranny, Duncan ate a lot of wasabi in front of Jack Tame at the TVNZ launch and Art Green is posting many mysterious Instagrams from very mysterious locations. It’s The Real Pod: for real.
