Hi Gang!

Team Chucklehead, AKA Ulong, continues their trend as the worst Survivor tribe ever, but we were thrilled to see the "Hypocrite Hick" finally get kicked out of the game. :)

We're enjoying this season and really enjoying creating each Podcast. We hope you're having a blast with it too.

Hello Again!

Survivor moved to a new night and it was certainly a show full of surprises. The only thing we weren't suprised by this week was that Ulong managed to lose another challenge. :)

There are a couple of operational changes to mention on our show this week too. First, I've been experimenting with the audio settings quite a bit lately, but I'm going to forgo the quest to eliminate the noise for now and just learn to live with that hissing sound in the background. I tried to remove it last week and didn't realize until I had already posted the show that it had some strange affect and created echos and some other audible oddities. We're going to switch the text portion of the update over to a slightly different format too.

We aren't really getting any participation on the show :(, so I decided that I'll use this section to post the show notes, a brief guide to what we're saying when in the podcast. From what I understand while listening to Adam Curry on his Daily Source Code podcast, it'll be important to have this data because at some point in the future we'll be able to combine this information with the audio and be able to jump to specific sections that we want to listen to or just to support simple searching. Guess I need to go back and do this for the first few shows too.

Greetings Survivor Fans!

It's Thursday night and time for our our fifth show. First, we're both thrilled that Ulong finally did something as a team and gave Kim the boot! How do lazy people like that get cast to be on the show? I guess she fooled quite a few people along the way and really knew how to say just the right things to be selected. I bet she put more effort into getting chosen for the show than she did while she was there on the island.

We came across a really interesting Survivor site this past week that we wanted to share with you. If you've ever thought you might want to be a contestant on the show you'll want to check it out. It's called Pygmy Island. The tag line is, "Out Write, Out Tape, Out Cast". It's dedicated to helping you prepare the best audition tape and interview to get you on the show. People who have applied for the show share their experiences. There was one really detailed account that we both enjoyed reading that described the trials and tribulations of a woman that almost made it to the final cut. It was very insightful and you'll enjoy it if you like behind the scenes information or just want some suggestions for when it's time to apply for season 12. :)

We know Ulong is adrift as a team now with little hope of recovering. But it was interesting to get a little more insight into how Koror is shaping up this week too. Sounds like the lines are being drawn. The majority is Tom, Ian, Katie, Greg, and Jen on one side. The Koror minority is Coby, Caryn, Janu, and Willard. Unfortunately, it's not clear at this point that they'll ever be tested. I think Ulong now holds the record for a team with the most consecutive losses in any season of the show. From the previews for next week, it looks like things won't be getting any better for them either.

Here's our picks for who'll go next. If it's Ulong, then we're going to say that James will go next. He really annoyed the ladies this week and they won't forget it. If a miracle happens and Koror ends up at tribal council, then we think it will be Caryn instead of Willard now. She's proven herself to be equally weak and she's definitely a lot more annoying.

Who do you think would have won in an island sumo match between Janu and Angie, or how about a battle of weaklings with Kim vs. Caryn?

Who's your pick for the next to leave, and who's going to win it all?

Hello Survivor Fans!

We're back again with our fourth show focusing on episode 3 of Survivor Palau. This was a classic episode in that one of the characters that we both wanted to get the boot survived, and a strong but injured player left the game too early. That appears to happen all too often in this game. There was a small improvement in the editing of the show this week thanks to a short reward challenge. We actually get to hear Ibrehem talk this time. It was nice to see a few more interactions back in camp. Did anyone else think there was a chance that Tom or Ian could kill a shark with a sharp stick? :)

Speaking of Koror, there's some obvious problems brewing there between Cayrn and Katie, but they managed to avoid having to thin the tribe again due to their strong overall teamwork. I bet they will not have any problems deciding who leaves if they ever do end up at tribal council.

Did anyone else think that was a particularly crappy reward for this week's reward challenge? How is sewing gear and some materials going to get you excited in those conditions. How about some food or materials to improve camp like a tarp? That looked more like a desperation reward. As in, "if we don't get them clothes soon, they're all going to end up naked". :)

If you are not aware of it, CBS has a nice additional show that airs on the Internet on Fridays called Survivor Live. They interview the most recently ejected contestant and get to ask some more in depth questions. You can call in and ask questions too if you're one of the lucky ones that gets through. Occasionaly, you get some good background stories that explain why the previous episode was edited strangely or just some extra details that they can't cover in the 1 hour show. If you're a fan of the show, you'll probably enjoy Survivor Live too.

Here's our picks for who'll go next. If it's Ulong, then we're going with the safe bet and say that Kim will go next. She adds no value. Maybe they'll actually come together as a team and get rid of her. If there's an upset and Koror ends up at tribal council, then we think it will be Willard.

Who's your pick for the next to leave? Do you like Palau so far? How does it compare to previous seasons? Leave us a comment or shoot us an email at:
