This week on The Real Pod, the team wash up in a MAFS-free world.

We dissect their loved-up Woman's Day shoot and wonder how the hell Erin Simpson owns a seven bedroom property in the Auckland housing crisis.

This week on The Real Pod, we heave our way to the end of Married at First Sight Australia wearing nothing but our Earth suits and eating nothing but chilled Tim Tams. What is Paleo Pete mad about now at the airport? Which one of us used to be a devoted postie? And what in the name of hell is the Champagne Lady's new show about?

We also task Duncan with a terrifying new Projekt and edge closer to Simon Barnett's shock resignation from More FM, before raising the age-old question: does chocolate go in the fridge or absolutely not?
