The Real Pod: New year, new us, same old celebs

The Real Pod assembles for the first time in 2018 to dissect the week in New Zealand pop culture and real life, with special thanks to Nando’s.

Jane Yee, Alex Casey and Duncan Greive are back for another year with a new and improved Real Pod, featuring more new segments than you can shake a Shakti mat at. We look back at a bountiful summer in local celebrity news, including baby announcements, reality stars launching businesses and one very bad case of sunburn for Luke from Married at First Sight NZ.

Beyond that, we debut a plethora of new regular sections from ‘The Si-Nal Countdown’ to ‘Keep Up With the Hoskings’ to ‘You Look Like You Need a Nando’s’. How many days does Simon Barnett have left on More FM? What ridiculous skill does each of us have to master by the end of 2018? And what’s the funniest community notice board message of the week? You’ll have to listen to find out.
