The Real Pod: We bow down to the Survivor Queen and do a sick stunt


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

This very normal episode of The Real Pod begins with Duncan in the toilet and ends with him being stood on by Alex while Jane shouts loudly. Inspired by the hypnotist from The Block NZ‘s Dinner Wars, it’s probably not the safest stunt we’ve ever done. We also bask in the glory of Survivor NZ winner Lisa Stanger (spoiler alert!) and the eternal light of our favourite celebrity, Colin Mathura Jeffree.

Beyond those amazing topics, we share some disgusting pillow secrets in our new segment Pillow Talk, explore the benefits of using horse shampoo and re-review a Shakti mat. Also: what does Dani from The Bachelor NZ have to do with our new swish studio? You’ll have to listen to find out. It’s the Real Pod, and it’s about as real as it gets.
