The Real Pod: an apology to Polly and Grant and a lament for the Champagne Lady

This week Jane, Duncan and Alex (and fill in recordist Don Rowe) really lean into this whole post-MAFS life. Pray for them. 

This week’s #realpod starts, like all should, with an apology. To Polly, and to Grant. We implied that they were no longer surfing the airwaves. We were wrong – they are rockin’ More FM in Wellington five days a week, as nature intended. That being out of the way, Jane, Alex and Duncan careen into the Champagne Lady, a pod icon who has unfortunately said two very unfortunate things lately. These are discussed and lamented, followed by analysis of the latest findings from the MAFS NZ experiment, a detour through Max Key corner and a quick run through of the post-reality TV tattoo scene.
