The Real Pod: Survivor NZ is back and these celebrity cats have a secret

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, we dive into the still Thailand lake of Survivor NZ season two. Alex brings all the exciting gossip from the premiere event at TVNZ, and we get to the bottom of some gnarly questions. Which contestant is a Real Pod superfan? Were the exploding rocks actually dung? And would overnight rice kill one or all of us if we decided to make it?

Beyond that, we bring you a Real Pod exclusive story about Art and Matilda’s adopted cats. Which local celebrity/arts and crafts hero previously owned them? The answer may shock you. We also review some deep bronze fake tan and award a tasty chicken meal to a bald hedgehog that’s down on her luck. It’s The Real Pod, and it’s all too real.
