Survivor fans, have I got the podcast for you today. Podcast #76 is with former contestant Stephen Fishbach, who is a walking encyclopedia when it comes to this show. So much fun listening to him talk about all the history and former seasons of this show that I essentially have completely forgotten. My favorite part is when I ask him 5 trivia questions and just to hear him think out loud recalling past seasons and locations and winners is crazy to hear. I guess I could do that for the “Bachelor/ette” franchise, but to hear someone else do it for another show really took me back. I was amazed at his recollection of this show. You talk about two people geeking out on one of the all-time reality shows ever, this podcast has it all. Two hours worth of talk on this and I enjoyed every minute of it. As always, if you want to respond to the interview, please include Stephen’s Twitter handle (@stephenfishbach) in your replies. I felt like we could’ve done another two hours as I had topics written down that I never even got to. A great listen today. Hope you enjoy it.
