Cook Islands: Episode 9

Now that's how you do a double elimination!

If you're rooting for the underdogs, you've got to be happy with how that turned out.

What do you think Nate is thinking after that last vote? He talks smack non-stop, but often seems to be completely out of the loop on the voting. Where does he stand in Raro now? Is he the solid #4 man or did he just get the boot to #5?

Episode 10 is titled, "Why Would You Trust Me?". Who do you think that's directed at?

What do you think Yul will propose as his great plan? Is he working on the plan because he's desperate to save someone or is it just forward looking strategy?
Just how far do think Jonathan can make it now? Do you think it's possible for him to make final 5?

Here are the tribes after episode 9.
Aitutaki: Becky, Ozzy, Sundra, and Yul
Rarotonga: Adam, Candice, Jonathan, Nathan, Parvati

Time for the merge and that means individual immunity challenges! Jo Ann and Stacy both think Candice will be the next to go.

Who do you think will be the next one to be voted out?

We've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and attach it or just type up a quick text message and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com. Lastly, there's a link for comments on the web page here. You can click that link and post your thoughts out there for everyone to see.

The intro music this week is dedicated to poor poor Candice. She just can't fathom how her "friends" could want her to suffer. The outro music is dedicated to the Raro tribe. They just suffered a major setback and the pucker factor has to be high in that camp after the double elimination. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

Cook Islands Episode 8 Listener Feedback

Are you a fan of Survivor?

I don't mean a casual watcher. Someone who says, "Oh yeah I saw the episode where they were on that island".

I mean a real fan. The type that can sit down and talk about what happened in the last episode for over an hour and not think twice about it?

If you answered yes, then we've got a treat for you! It's called the Listener Feedback show and it's another whopper, chock full of new analysis, strategies and commentaries from other fans just like you from around the world. :)

We got a couple more congratulations messages from past Survivors thanks to Listener Lisa to share this week too. One of them makes us crack up laughing everytime we listen to it.
Thanks again Lisa!

This week we hear from: Coby from Survivor Palau, Brian, Hanna, James, Denver Dave, Claudia, Graham, Paul, Kurt, Carol, Brad, Bob, Sandi, Mike, and Billy from Survivor Cook Islands.

We love hearing what you thought, and we've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and attach it or just type up a quick text message and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com. Lastly, there's a link for comments on the web page here. You can click that link and post your thoughts out there for everyone to see.

Our intro tune is dedicated to Candice and Jonathan. In hindsight, calling it a mistake may seem like an understatement. The outro music is dedicated to all the JSFL players who are contemplating their next step for episode 9. It's starting to get tricky now. You have to pick four safe players and the second person on the jury. Brian from Georgia is on hand to help you make your selection, so fear not and follow his sage advice. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

Cook Islands: Episode 8

In the beginning, Yul said "If we break up now, then we're toast!". So saith Yul and so shall it be.

Here's a roleplaying assignment for this week's Listener Feedback show.
If you were Jonathan, who would most likely be voted out next on Aitu, do you stay if offered the chance to join the other tribe?
Now your on Aitu, what's the best thing you can say when asked what you think about your teammate's choice to mutiny?
You're Jonathan again, what's your cover story to explain to Raro why they should keep you?

Now for some conventional questions.
Why is Candice so eager to sell out Jonathan?
What is the significant information that the losing tribe will receive?
Why didn't we see anyone express concern that Jonathan might have the hidden immunity idol?
Do you think there's any chance now that someone from Aitu will make it to final four?

Here are the tribes after episode 8.
Aitutaki: Becky, Ozzy, Sundra, and Yul
Rarotonga: Adam, Candice, Jenny, Jonathan, Nathan, Parvati, and Rebecca

Episode 9 is titled, "People That You Like Want to See You Suffer". It's another double elimination week. Jo Ann thinks it will be Sundra and Jonathan. Stacy thinks it will be Sundra and Jenny

Who are your picks for the next two that will be voted out?

We've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and attach it or just type up a quick text message and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com. Lastly, there's a link for comments on the web page here. You can click that link and post your thoughts out there for everyone to see.

The intro and outro tunes this week are dedicated to Candice and Jonathan who made the switch back to their Raro roots and performed their version of Mutiny on the Bounty. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

Cook Islands Episode 7 Listener Feedback

Time for some more of that Listener Feedback goodness!

Listener Lisa arranged a special treat for our 100th episode but it didn't quite get to us before the celebration show. We really enjoyed it though and wanted to share it with you this week. Thanks Lisa!

Episode 7 was packed with action and everyone has a theory about the "mutiny" option. You guys had a lot to talk about. Let's get to it!

This week we hear from: Lisa, JoAnna Ward, Shelley, Bonnie, Toledo Dave, Ethan Zohn, Mike, Amy, Denver Dave, Bonnie (part 2), Mal Gal, Brian, Carol, Sandi, Bob, and Sarge

We love hearing what you thought, and we've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277).

Lastly, there's a link for comments on the web page here. You can click that link and post your thoughts out there for everyone to see.

Our intro and outro tunes are once again dedicated to Jessica. She added value to the team in the challenges but never really caught on to the whole "Survivor is a game" concept and was finally discarded when the adults decided it was time for her to go home. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

Cook Islands: Episode 7

With tonight's episode we see the last of the "I'm here for the experience" clueless players exit the game. We're finally down to a set of folks that are actually interested in playing to win which makes the stakes much higher and more interesting at each turn.
The tribes are at even numbers now. The merge can't be too far off. These next couple of episodes are going to be key in deciding which tribe enters the merge with the numbers to control their destiny.

Looks like Aitu's plan was to "kidnap" a powerful player and take them out of the game. Was that the best use of the kidnap option?
Is Brad the next to go on Rarotonga?
If you were Brad or Ozzy, would you switch tribes given the opportunity?
He feeds you. He's consistently been a key to winning physical challenges, but how long do you hold on to a powerhouse individual like Ozzy?

Here are the tribes after episode 6.
Aitutaki: Becky, Candice, Jonathan, Ozzy, Sundra, and Yul
Rarotonga: Adam, Brad, Jenny, Nathan, Parvati, and Rebecca

Jo Ann thinks it will be Brad for Raro and Jonathan for Aitu. Stacy thinks it will be Brad or Ozzy.

Who is your pick for next to get voted out?

We've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and attach it or just type up a quick text message and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com. Lastly, there's a link for comments on the web page here. You can click that link and post your thoughts out there for everyone to see.

The intro and outro this week are dedicated to Jessica AKA "Flica Flame". She came into the game as a child and left in pretty much the same state. May she never change. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

No Show for "A Closer Look" Hi Gang,

Well, we didn't see quite enough new material to do a show for today's episode. There were a few things that caught our interest, but we can easily work them into a future podcast.

If we get enough Listener Feedback we'll put out a podcast on Tuesday. Otherwise, we'll be back on Nov 2nd when the next episode titled "Why Aren't You Swimming?" airs.

Thanks for checking in,
Jo Ann and Stacy

Our hosting provider notified us that the problem with downloading episode 100 should be fixed now.

Give iTunes another try if you haven't already and let us know if you're still having difficulty.

Thanks,
Jo Ann and Stacy
Category:Show Logistics -- posted at: 12:25pm PST

Hi Everyone,

Our hosting provider hasn't got back to us on when we can expect a fix. They'll eventually figure out what's wrong and fix it, but this has happened before and dragged on for days.

Uploading the file again didn't make any difference either.

So, we have an alternative for you. It's a multi-step sequence and the file won't download directly into iTunes. You'll save it to your Mac/PC and then you can listen to it directly or you could add it to your iTunes library.

Here's the link to get you to episode 100.
JASS20061024.html

The file is hosted at RapidShare. When you click on the link, you'll need to scroll down and click on the FREE button.

That will take you to the 2nd page where you can choose which RapidShare network to download the file from (Cogent, Level-3, or Telia).  I chose Cogent when I tested it and it downloaded very fast.

You then need to enter the letters and numbers you see in the Captcha image, into the textbox and click the download button.

Note: you don't have to purchase a premium account to download the file. This is a free service for files up to 100MB.

If this sounds too complicated, bear with us and we'll eventually get the problem resolved with our provider.

Thanks for your patience,
Jo Ann and Stacy
Category:Show Logistics -- posted at: 8:19pm PST

Hi Everyone,

We have notified our hosting provider of the difficulties that you are having with downloading the 100th episode.

They responded to say they were aware of problem and are working to resolve it. At this point, we do not have an update.

While troubleshooting on my own, I noticed that previous episodes do not appear to be affected. I'm re-submitting the file in hopes of getting around whatever bug I managed to trigger with the post last night.

If that doesn't work, I will post the show to one of the file sharing services and provide a link to it.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Stacy
