This week we interviewed Shirin Oskooi. She left the game in episode 11 of Survivor Worlds Apart. After years of applying, Shirin finally realized her dream to be on the show. Unfortunately, that dream quickly turned dark. She was frequently targeted by most of her fellow castaways and ostracized for her quirky behaviour and obsession with the show. Even after being degraded and dehumanized by several male castaways she fought on and found little moments to celebrate and enjoy her time on the show. We admired her perseverance and triumphant spirit.
Listen to this interview to hear more details on that infamous no swimsuit event, events leading up to Will's hostile outburst, how she's working to turn her experience into a positive for others and more!
