The Real Pod: Sailing the seven seas of gossip on a sinking pirate ship

The Real Pod team smash 1000 coffees to discuss Miss Universe NZ, The Block’s resurgence and our producer Mad’s brush with death. Plus: an exciting new Mike Puru segment. 

As the pirate ship at Rainbow’s End makes its final voyage this week, The Real Pod stowaways are regaled with producer Mad’s tale from the seven seas. Alex recounts a weekend hopping between investigative journalism and Miss Universe NZ, Jane shares some juicy Married at First Sight goss from a jazzy night out and Duncan somehow manages to talk about his cheese noodle recipe again.

Also: The Block NZ is rating better than ever, Max Key wants to host an election debate and/or cut his hair, and we launch a brand new self-help segment called Puru the Guru. Watch out Bridget Saunders, The Real Pod is coming for your gossip crown.
