The Real Pod: The Block is on the up and plastic bags are on the out

The good news is that The Real Pod team are back to talk some guff about reality TV and real life in New Zealand. The bad news is that there’s still a pile of rubbish outside Jane’s house. 

Another week of literal and metaphorical rubbish on The Real Pod this week, as Jane continues to lament the emotional dump on her berm and Duncan talks at length about a new supermarket in suburban central-west Auckland. Bill English’s son is trying to be Max Key, and Alex is trying to get fit after using a Fitbit because Helen Clark told her to.

Elsewhere, there are maggots in the McDonald’s soft serve and irate holiday makers in Invercargill. KFC have got new virtual reality training, which might come in handy when the new, trimmed-down version of My Kitchen Rules New Zealand returns.

All that, and we still don’t have a sponsor. Outrageous.
