Leisha's cruised into the studio to chat with Rachel and Tess about a sensational dining experience she had last night at Pasture. After being deemed the Best Restaurant in Tāmaki by Metro, Leisha had to check it out and 12 courses later, it won her over. Waxing lyrical over their aged butter and sourdough, their pig crumpets and a drinks menu that's not what you'd expect... Leisha reckons this is an affair that's worth a treat.

Sam tried to watch Chambers, couldn't get into it, so we're talking The Society. And after 10 hours of binge watching the series in two days, Sam's got some thoughts to share. This teen drama has got the running themes to keep you hooked, but is it worth your time?
