Cook Islands Preview Show

Are you as psyched about the new season of Survivor that starts this Thursday as we are?

We can't wait, and what better way to get ready than a preview show where we wade in and share our extremely biased views on how we think all the new castaways will do before we ever get to see them in action?

Our "Judge a Book by its Cover" show gives us an excuse to get to know the new Survivor contestants and sharpen our psychic powers as we do just what our parents and religous leaders taught us not to do which is to judge people on surface detail alone, without any real knowledge of who they are. We, of course, encourage you to play along at home, and we got some great feedback this time too.

A special thanks to: Fancy, Carol, Hanna, Sandi, Graham, and Bob for taking the time to share their opinions too.

Here are the tribes at the start of Survivor 13: Cook Islands

Aitutaki: Billy, Cecilia, Cristina, J.P., Ozzy

Manihiki: Nathan, Rebecca, Sekou, Stephannie, Sundra

Puka Puka: Becky, Brad, Cao Boi, Jenny, Yul

Rarotonga: Adam, Candice, Jessica, Jonathan, Parvati

If you're interested in participating in the JSFL, send us an email with JSFL in the subject line to let us know, and we'll add you to the roster and send you additional instructions. The prize this season will be a Survivor t-shirt. Not sure what the JSFL is? Check out the links section below for the rules we used last season along with the results.

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.

We really like podsafe artist madsumo's music and his tune title "On the Grill" works great for our "Judge a Book by its Cover" show. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

Cook Islands Preview Request Show

It's time to kick off a new season of Survivor with our traditional "Judge a Book by its Cover" show.

We want to hear what you think about the 20 new contestants for Survivor Cook Islands.
There's not a lot of information to draw on. It's not clear yet how all these diverse people will interact with each other or what agendas they plan to follow throughout the game.
Study their pictures, read their bios and let us know how well you think they will do this season.

We of course want to hear what you think about the decision to divide the tribes by race. Is it a grand "social experiment" or just another stunt that Mark Burnet proposed to stir up interest in the show?

Who's your pick for the first one voted out?

How many episodes will they air with four teams before they merge down to the normal two?

Go out on a limb, and tell us who you think will win it all.

Will Exile Island play a significant role in this season?

If you're interested in participating in the JSFL, send us an email with JSFL in the subject line to let us know, and we'll add you to the roster and send you additional instructions. The prize this season will be a Survivor t-shirt. Not sure what the JSFL is? Check out the links section below for the rules we used last season along with the results. Listener Carol from northern California was our winner. Here she is pictured with the buffs she won.

BOSS 14 Day Field Skills Part 5 Part 5 concludes the story of Stacy's adventure this summer at the BOSS 14 Day Field Skills class and focuses on days 12 through 14.

Day 12 begins the Student Expedition phase of the journey. At this point, the students are given a set of maps and directions for their way points on each day, along with the phone numbers of key staff in case they have an emergency. The group's first goal is to hike up out of the gulch on their way to the sandstone tanks. They will meet back up with the instructors at the end of day 13.


A special thanks goes out to Chris and Mike who shared their pictures from the journey to help tell the story visually: Podcast Pics BOSS Experience

Part 4 continues the story of Stacy's adventure this summer at the BOSS 14 Day Field Skills class and focuses on days 9 through 11.

Day 9 concludes the Group Expedition phase with a challenging hike through the gulch and includes the beginning of Solo. During Solo, the students are on their own with no contact for 48 hours. Will Stacy be able to get fire, will he be forced to eat pinole and raw vegatables the whole time?

BOSS 14 Day Field Skills Part 3 Ok, we're finally back. Stacy was quite ill for the last few weeks, but he's much better now and we're ready to continue.

Part 3 resumes the story of Stacy's experience this summer at the BOSS 14 Day Field Skills class and focuses on days 6 through 8. The group was reenergized during their stay at Durfey creek and ready to tackle the Group Expedition phase. Day 6 begins with Mike and Stacy leading the way, sort of. :)

BOSS 14 Day Field Skills Part 2 Part 2 continues the story of Stacy's experience this summer at the BOSS 14 Day Field Skills class and focuses on days 3 through 5.

With day 2 and the challenge of The Needle behind them, the group heads back up to the small pool of water for a drink and then they're off again on another long journey which includes hiking up the side of a mountain for a little extra challenge. Day 4 focused on the sanctity of life and brought some much needed food. Day 5 was about powering up for the next phase, Group Expedition. At this point, the instructors begin to transition control of the navigation for the hikes to the students.

Exile Island Finale Listener Feedback

Greetings Survivor Fans,

We're going out with our biggest Listener Feedback show yet. It's a little over an hour and a half long, so you'll probably have to partake in small doses if you're a die hard Survivor fan and plan on listening to the whole thing.

We're thrilled so many of you were moved to send in your thoughts. It's been a great season primarily because of your participation.

This episode we hear from: Graham, Carol, Jason, Bonnie, Paul, Dave, Hanna, Fancy, Brad, Sandi, Amy, Bob, Mallory, Damien, and Josh

We'll be back again in mid to late June with an update on Stacy's adventure in the desert and news about other shows during the summer hiatus.

We'd love to hear from you during the off season too. We'll be gone for a couple weeks starting Memorial Day weekend, but we always enjoy chatting about our favorite show with other fans.

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.

We liked the intro music this week because it reminded us of how much fun we had watching Survivor with you this season. All good things come to and end and this outro music works both in title and melody to celebrate that moment. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

Exile Island Finale Feedback Show Delayed Hey Gang,

Our hosting provider is planning a major upgrade for tonight. From past experience, we know that these events typically result in multi-day outages. :)

So, we thought it would be best to delay the show till Thursday and avoid the usual headaches that coincide with their growing pains.

To those of you that got your inputs in already, thank you very much. We're that much closer to having the show done.

If you thought it was just too rushed and you didn't have time to respond yet, there's still time! We'll be accepting email, audio files, and voicemail up till Thursday afternoon PST.

If you need to vent or celebrate, we're still accepting input for the Finale Listener Feedback show. Now's your time to sound off.

Exile Island Episode 13 LF

Greetings Survivor Fans,

We got enough responses to do a special Saturday version of the Listener Feedback show. We really enjoyed hearing what some of you thought of the final four cliffhanger.

This episode we hear from: Paul, Jason, Mallory, Sandi, and Bob

We're planning on recaping the finale and including your reactions during the normal Listener Feedback show on Tuesday.

It's been another great season of Survivor and we're looking forward to wrapping it up with your help. We look forward to hearing from all the regulars and hopefully a few new folks too. :)

We've got several ways you can join in and participate. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com. With either of those options, we can include your audio directly into the special Listener Feedback shows.

You can also send us your input in an email, and we'll read it into the show when we record. 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.

We liked the intro music for this episode because it works well regardless of who specifically your hoping wins the firemaking tie breaker. The outro music is also dedicated to both Cirie and Danielle as they battle to break the Tribal Council tied vote. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.
