Survivor 31 Cast Interview: Peih-Gee Law

The idea of Survivor as a popularity contest apparently wasn't direct enough, so the cast for next season is down to a public vote and we don't want you to mess up by not voting for Peih-Gee. We invited her on for a brief chat about Survivor:China, the upcoming season and the ongoing campaign, and why you should Obey the Law and give her a second chance.

As always you can listen below, here, or on iTunes here.

Survivor 31: Voting Forecast + S30E12 Discussion

Survivor 30 is technically still a thing, but today we're primarily back to break down each S31 candidate's chances at reliving their dreams of immeasurable stress and starvation that they horrifically botched the first time and will probably do again. Is CBS honestly foolish enough to let America control 100% of the cast? How should potential bubble people be approaching their campaign strategies? Is a negative better than a zero? And has Kass set a new personal (perhaps world) record for obliviousness? Plus, our latest takes on S30 but honestly who cares at this point. Listen on the player below, find the direct link here, or find us on iTunes here.

Season 31 discussion starts at 45:40

Survivor 30: Magic Mike -- Episode 11 Recap/Analysis

Despite the actual outcome seeming all but certain, everything else appears to be totally open-ended and today we're back for another round of our signature baseless predictions that will sound ludicrous in retrospect. Mike continued to make compelling TV, but did he coordinate his Tribal Council gambit properly? And now that he's down six to one, is he suddenly the safest person in the game? Does anyone -- production included -- know the rules to Dan's advantage in the event of a tie? And what can be made of how things might shake out next week? All that and more when you listen below, here, or on iTunes here.
