Hey ya’ll we’re back for a very special merge episode! Yep that’s right, we discuss the Survivor: David vs. Goliath merge episode in all it’s glory. What have Scott and Ryan been up to? Do they still like Survivor? Do they still like each other? Why don’t they have a guest? Find out all of that (and maybe even some of our thoughts on the season) in this year’s episode of Snakes, Rats and Goats!
It’s the dead of night and as always we bring back perennial favorite, freelance Survivor challenge consultant and all-around fantastic guy, Myles Nye to discuss the Survivor HHH Finale. Who is Scavenger Hunt Boy, how is Ryan (Elder) like Jeb Bush and what’s a challenge coin? Find out all of that and more in one last Heroes, Healers and Hustlers late-night podcast extravaganza.
This week we welcome writer/actor Jim Wise (MadTV, The Tonight Show) to the show. Jim shares with us his nearly non-existent history with Survivor (see below for a MadTV sketch he wrote involving Jeff Probst.) We also shed some light on Scott’s mysterious improv days as well as our annual half-hour long discussion of Three’s Company. Jim takes the “which 80s sitcom star was on Survivor” quiz and gives us his thoughts on just who in the world is going to win this crazy season.
For our first guestless episode of the season we go Know-it-alls-style and keep it short, sweet and on point. Don’t worry, still plenty of fruitless and confusing digressions! Scott comes up with a new TV show idea, we invent a new law of game theory and we check in on how Scott and Ryan are feeling about Randy from Gabon these days.
This week we welcome 12-time Jeopardy champion, 4th all-time Jeopardy money winner, 3rd place Jeopardy Tournament of Champions, and zero-time Survivor viewer Austin Rogers to the show. We discuss the similarities and differences between Jeopardy and Survivor including jargon and superfandom as well as a host of other nonsense. So put some synergy on that ideation and settle in for a good Pagrahming because it’s Austin’s birthday and we’re talking Heros, Healers and Hustlers.
This week we welcome Survivor “virgin” and co-creator/director of Princess Rap Battles Steve Gossett to the podcast. Steve’s background as a director, wrestling referee, and one-time reality TV hopeful give him a unique perspective on the show. How do you record good audio in 2 feet of ocean water? How many cameras are at every immunity challenge? Who are Red Pam, Skinny Hobbit and Sand Thor? For better or worse we discuss all of that and more!
Every so often we take a break from having a guest who knows nothing by having a guest who’s seen it all and this is one of those guests. We welcome the fantastic Peih-Gee Law (Survivor: China, Survivor: Second Chance) onto the podcast to talk about her experiences and what she thinks of Survivor HHH. We discuss how Survivor is like a dating show, which Survivors are most like Muppets and Scott wows us with some new, original content of his devising.
