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: 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.

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.

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!

Post Show Recaps' Antonio Mazzaro fills in to offer early thoughts on the finale and speculate about the long-term legacy
advantage of Game Changers. Where does Sarah's win stack up historically and how will her success impact future seasons? What are the pros and cons of the new jury format and might it actually affect strategy going forward? And how will the producers adjust the twist ratio after Advantage-geddon took out the possible GOAT? All that and more below, here, or on iTunes here.

As always we have no idea what's going on, and for once we're not alone. In an episode that flummoxed players, Probsts, and fans alike, what sense can we make of what happened? Will the much-hyped Twist-a-geddon be even worse? And who - Sarah or Brad, Dom or Colin, vanity or charity - will emerge triumphant? All that and more on this week's show, available below, here, or on iTunes here.

It's family week in Fiji and today we're back to declare our eternal love for the true game changers of the season: the editors. With only two weeks to go and several winner candidates still in play, which of Sarah or Brad has the inside track, and might one of them fall before Day 39? How realistic are Cirie's chances of making it to Final Tribal Council, and could she still lose if she gets there? And how many times in a row can we pick Andrea to be the next one out? All that and more below, here, or on iTunes here.
