Big Brother 19 Premiere Week with Liana Boraas

We were somehow tempted to watch Big Brother again this season and, before that wears off, we wanted to break it down. Since somebody on the podcast should know what they're talking about, we enlisted Liana Boraas to give us the lowdown on who these people are, whom we should like/hate, and what to expect from this season of silliness. You can listen below, here, or on iTunes here.

Remembering The Genius: ID Exchange with Mike Bloom

Two years ago, we waited impatiently for the premiere of what promised to be the greatest ever season of reality TV. Esteemed sunbae Mike Bloom joins us today to look back with hindsight on an episode that set the bar very high and easily cleared it. How well does the premiere frame the rest of the season? Does any of the craziness make more sense in retrospect? And are any of us over the loss of our idol and his lurid pink sweaters yet? All this and more on the first of hopefully many more Genius podcasts, available below, here, or on iTunes here.

Survivor 34: Season in Review

Survivor: Game Changers is officially in the books and today we're back to evaluate Sarah's win, offer our parting thoughts on the cast, and debate how history will remember the season as a whole. Plus, what other tweaks could be made to Final Tribal Council? What will be the lasting impact of Advantage-geddon? And who's coming back for another shot?  All that and more below, here, or on iTunes here.

UK Snap Election with Michael Botta

Put the kettle on and settle in for a leisurely edited podcast about a hastily convened election. Michael Botta joins me as I figure out what just happened and explain it to you as if I knew the whole time.

Listener Survey

We always love hearing from you but haven't made any formal attempts to solicit feedback. As we think about how to improve the show moving ahead, it seemed like a good time to fix that. I set up a listener survey that you can give as much or as little attention to as you like; feel free to skip questions that don't seem relevant, but as far as we're concerned there's no such thing as too much detail. All answers appreciated!
