THE TWILIGHT POD
After more than a year of social distancing for Alex, Jane and Duncan, the Real Pod trio are back in the same room for an emotional reunion and the long-awaited analysis of a cinematic masterpiece.Approximately a thousand years ago, the idea of The Real Pod maybe, possibly, perhaps one day recapping the Twilight movie was floated. The people heard the rally cry, and a small but incredibly insistent movement began.The comments on Facebook asking “Twilight pod?” kept trickling in, and after the sixth or seventh one, we finally relented. As if we could outrun it... as if we could fight it off.So here we are in Forks, Washington, diving deep into all the mystery and wonder of an unstoppable love between vampire and human. Join us as we talk 2000s fashion, terrible hair, fast cars, mushroom risotto, twenty-three year old doctor dads and that scene in the parking lot. Plus Alex drops a bombshell about R-Patz that none of us smelt coming. It’s The Real Pod, and it’s really, really long. What a stupid pod… What sick, masochistic podcasters.– Sign up to The Spinoff's newsletter Rec Room for weekly recommendations along with all our latest videos and podcasts.

The Real Pod reassembles to dissect the seventh week of The Bachelorette NZ, with special thanks to Nando’s.The good news is that we are all back in the same country for the first time in a long time, the bad news is that it is definitely not because of The Right Reasons. In a snap decision, Jane left LAX for New Zealand 48 hours ago and recaps her journey home for us in these freaky times of Covid-19.It's a better time than ever to travel to our alternate reality in Argentina, where the boys are still pulling down pants and popping grapes willy-nilly. Mike and Michael decided they were done with Lesina's grilling, Logan had a revealing session with his notebook and AMOG has come completely loose at the seams.It's The Real Pod, and it's still real.

The Real Pod: In which we deeply respect the culture of The Bachelorette NZ
The Real Pod reassembles to dissect the cultured fourth week of The Bachelorette NZ with special thanks to Nando’s.This week on The Bachelorette NZ, a burrito bust-up ends in anaphylaxis, Steve chows down on some one ply and the Buenos Aires hostel goes full Lord of the Flies. It's become abundantly clear that that the show is less about two women finding love, and more about a bunch of blokes slowly losing their mind over a talking bottle.Also Duncan makes a formal apology to Richie, Jane reveals her drop crotch truth and there is a fierce debate about visible farts vs poop burps. Oh, there's also a bit of a bombshell from Alex. It's The Real Pod and, today, it's real as hell. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

The Real Pod: The awkies intruders hit The Bachelorette NZ
The Real Pod reassembles to dissect the fourth week of The Bachelorette NZ with special thanks to Nando’s.Oi oi me homies, it's intruder week on The Bachelorette NZ and we are about as shook as a humble kūmara being wrenched from Dargaville's finest soil. Michael! Mac! Mike! Richie! Elliott (again)! The lad culture in the mansion is officially ruined, the cat has been set amongst the pigeons and all Aaron can do is sing his favourite Lonestar tune.Lesina took Elliott out for a danger cruise, Lily made gelato with Liam and the boys pranked each other till the stars turned cold. Will Steve ever forgive Aaron for interrupting him? Will Logan's kissing ever get better? And how long until Tavita's hernia explodes all over the Buenos Aires?? All that, and a quick round-up of MAFS AU and Love is Blind. It's The Real Pod! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

The Real Pod: The Bachelorette gets naked, teary and herniated in Argentina
The Real Pod reassembles to dissect the nude and rude third week of The Bachelorette NZ with special thanks to Nando’s.Two wonderful women and a mixed bag of lads jetted off to Argentina this week, one which saw a serious culling of the meek set of the herd. Conor, Flynn and Mr Wedge all departed, nearly joined by Tavita, who was only saved after his hernia was given a double shaka down at the hospitable.The big change at the 'actually plausible winners' end of the competition was Aaron disintegrating before our wide eyes. First he snitched on Steve for his hobby of the odd sly dart, then he did a diary cam in maybe the worst possible location in their mansion/prison, then he fell apart in ways which we found either endearing or terrifying. Alex, Jane and Duncan recount every wild moment, with a little recap of the first few MAFS AU weddings for dessert. Delicious, like a block of fresh gouda.
