The Real Pod: The Block is back, Bill English has Snapchat and Si still won’t give up

Jane Yee, Duncan Greive and Alex Casey gather around a pile of cheesy Lotatoes to talk about the latest happenings in New Zealand television and real life in New Zealand.

It’s a huge week on The Real Pod, with the New Zealand pop culture news about as piping hot as the cheesy low-carb Lotatoes that are up for review. The Block NZ is back with a carbon copy of last year’s cast, Jeremy Wells got a multi-million dollar library fine, Bill English is still tanking on social media and Si & Gary just won’t give up the Cruise dream.

Duncan also re-pitches the idea of an MP hotlist, Alex brings some Colin Mathura-Jeffree gossip from a celeb-studded opening night, and Jane measures The Herald‘s Lady Bronagh for the America’s Cup.
