Survivor Guatemala Preview Show Part 1 of 2

Hello Survivor Fans,

This is part 1 of our 2 part Survivor Guatemala preview show.

In these 2 episodes, we'll read through the bios and study the pictures of each player. Then we give our feedback based solely on this data. We'll more than likely be completely wrong with the majority of our predictions, but that's just part of the fun. :)

These two shows are extra special because we got some great audio predictions from Gloria, Bill and Enzo on the new contestants too.

So lets get started at guessing who will be the first to go and basically list the reasons we think each person may or may not have a chance at winning.

As always, if you have comments or feedback, you can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment on your PC and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com.

You can also send us your input as a normal email and we'll read it into the show when we record. Lastly, there's a link for comments on the webpage here. It's not too late if you want to add your predictions to the record. :)

Note: We're continuing to experiment with a new program called CastBlaster to record the show. We're still learning how to use it, so don't be surprised when you hear some drops and clipping. It's not your player, it's us actively learning a new application.

Also, we're playing music from the podsafe music network. Make sure to check out that site if you're looking for some new tunes for your mp3 player.

Applying for Survivor 12

Hello Again Survivor Fans,

Welcome to another of our special topic shows while Survivor is on summer hiatus. It's a whopper of a show as you can see from the show notes below. This time, we focus on the experience of applying to be on Survivor 12. We talk about the video production, answering the kooky questions on the application, and we spend some time reviewing a risk assessment of what it might mean to us if Stacy were to actually be selected.
There's also an update on Tom Westman, a look at other entertainment options we're pursuing this summer, and don't forget that Survivor reruns begin on OLN TV on July 24th.

Hi Survivor Fans,

Tom Westman is Sole Survivor!
Wow, it's over. So, was anyone truly suprised by who won? :)
It's easy to say he was one of the best contestents to ever play the game. We'll have one more short, wrap-up show to close out our first season of podcasting with our focus on Surivor Palua. After that, well, we haven't completely figured out what we're going to do before Survivor Guatemala starts.

Hi Survivor Fans,

Finale Preview Predictions
This is just a quick update on the Survivor Palau Finale. We review our predictions. Jo Ann offers a theory on Ian's strange behavior and then we wrap up with input from Jac and Bill. It's only 11 minutes long, but we wanted to get those updated predictions in before it airs. :)

Welcome Back Survivor Fans,

Listener Feedback
This was our best week yet for listener feedback. Dave chimed in via the comments section of the last show. You can scroll down and click the comments field to see exactly what he had to say. Sandy expected Katie would be the next one to leave. Bill provided a great, detailed prediction that covered the challenges as well as his expectation that Jenn would be the next to leave. Enzo is back with an audio update that we added directly into the show itself. He did a great job of assembling it and included intro/outro music as well as a title, "Do the Shuffle". We initially thought we might need to cut it down to specific clips, but after checking our storage budget, we decided to just include the whole thing for everyone to enjoy. Great job Enzo! Thanks again to all of you. It's the community aspect of this that makes it really special. We'd love to hear from more of you.

Come on. There's only one show left. Who's your pick for final three, final two, and the sole survivor? To leave an audio comment, call 206-350-JASS(5277). Or you can always add a text comment to this page like Dave did for the last show by clicking the comments link or you can always send us an email at: joannandstacyshow@gmail.com.

Hi Again Survivor Fans,

Listener Feedback
Bill picked Katie to go this week, but he called the reward challenge and family member angle perfectly. Hey Enzo, we missed getting your prediction this week. Hope you're doing well and can catch us up with your predictions for the next episode.

There's only two shows left. Who's your pick for the next person to get voted off the island? How about the final two? To leave an audio comment, call 206-350-JASS(5277).

Hello Again,

Listener Feedback
Both Bill and Enzo sent us their picks for this week along with some observations on how the show is shaping up. Bill's pick last week was particularly astute in that he accurately predicted the fall of the mighty Stephenie. Enzo's feedback said to watch for Greg to be voted off soon. He also highlighted what appeared to be an overt, extreme manipulation by Jeff Probst of Janu last week in Tribal Council. Several of the TV journalists agreed with Enzo and were quite vocal in calling foul on Probst.

It's getting down to the wire. There will only be three more shows before this season is done. What do you think we should focus on when Survivor's over? Who's your pick for the next person to get voted off the island? To leave an audio comment, call 206-350-JASS(5277).

Here's our picks for next week. Jo Ann thinks that Caryn will be next and follow the order that Tom called out this week with her as number six. I think we'll finally see a puzzle challenge for immunity next week which means Tom will not win it. Since it's all Koror now, Greg and Jen will finally be able to execute their plan to start eliminating the stronger players.

Welcome Back,

Woohoo! We got more listener feedback. :)
Bill sent us an email asking for more complete coverage. He caught us making a format change which shortened the show and left out an item he really wanted to discuss. I think we have a plan to fix that now Bill, and thanks for sending in that request.

We got our first voicemail from Laughing Pygmy, the host of the Pygmy Island website. Check our show on Episode 4 for some more background on his site. He included his predictions for the final two which was really cool. Sounds like he's a big fan of Stephenie too.

We really enjoy the listener feedback. Hey, is there anyone out there that would be interested in doing an interview like the one we did with Survivor Fan Sandy? We got a device from Radio Shack that will let us make a digital recording of the call. We'll pay for the call and include it as a special segment on the show. We've got a set of sample questions we can send ahead of time to let you know what we're looking for. Let us know if you're interested.

Send us feedback on the show or your pick for who's going to get voted off next. To leave an audio comment, call 206-350-JASS(5277). Or you can always add a text comment to this page by clicking the comments link or send us an email at: joannandstacyshow@gmail.com.

Here's our picks for next week. We're going to avoid the obvious choice of Stephenie. Jo Ann thinks that a female alliance will emerge as the power center and Tom will be next to go. I agree that those ladies are pretty sharp and very likely to recognize the strength in numbers they have. My prediction differs only slightly. I'm going with a hunch and guessing that it will be Ian. What do you think?
