The Real Pod assembles to dissect the last few weeks in New Zealand pop culture and real life, with special thanks to Nando’s.
With Duncan still basking somewhere on a desert island, Alex and Jane reconvene in The Spinoff studio to pick apart the past week in local weird news, pop culture and reality TV. We had a glittering evening at the premiere of Aladdin with every New Zealand celebrity ever, before the entire nation was thrown into disarray at the arrival of the unruly tourists onto our newsfeeds.
Beyond the Primo robbery, the Christmas tree robbery and the bloody Takapuna rubbish, there’s somehow still more news to talk about. What does season two of Heartbreak Island have in store? Why is Max Key playing coy on Celebrity Treasure Island NZ? And which podcast host sold their bra on TradeMe to a cornie?
OH, AND WE EAT SOME OF THE HOTTEST CHILLI CHOCOLATE IN THE WORLD.
