Jo Ann and Stacy Show Listener Feedback for Survivor Guatemala Episode 2

Hello Survivor Fans!

We're doing something a little different this week. We're thrilled with the listener responses that are coming in this season. There's so much good info at times that we really need to break up the show into a couple of segments. Otherwise, our show about what happened and why on Survivor each week would end up being about twice as long as the actual TV episode. :)

Here's our first ever segment dedicated to listener feedback focused on Survivor Guatemala with some specific details on episodes 1 and 2.

In this episdoe we hear from Bill, Sharon, Shelley, Sandi, Gloria, Craig, and a special audio segment from Drew.

Bill starts us off with a possible link to the tree that hit Blake in episode 1. Here's a picture of Cryosophila Stauracantha AKA "The Give and Take Tree" that we found with a Google search.

The Give and Take Tree



Now, here's a framegrab from episode 1 of the tree that fell on Blake. Blank's Spike Tree



What do you think? Is it a match? Check the links section below for more info and where Bill found it.



Here's a picture we put together to help us think about Sandi's question. :)

Jo Ann and Stacy Show Survivor Guatemala Episode 2

Hello Survivor Fans!

What did you think about episode 2?

Did you agree with voting off Morgan?

Why weren't Brianna or Rafe at risk? Unlike Stephanie, Lydia or Morgan, they performed really poorly in the reward challenge. Yet, they didn't even appear to be under consideration.

While it was quite a shock to Morgan, we weren't suprised at all to see her get the boot this soon. If you go back to our preview show, you'll see that she was one of the early picks to get voted off before the merge.

Jo Ann's pick for the next to go in episode 2 is Blake if Nakum loses and Rafe if Yaxha loses. Stacy says it will be Bobby Jon for Nakum or Brianna for Yaxha. Who's your pick? Let us know.

We love listener 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. With either of those options, we'll include your audio right into the show.

Survivor Guatemala Preview Show Part 2 of 2

Hello Survivor Fans,

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

In these 2 episodes, we read through the bios and studied the pictures starting with Jaime and continuing through Rafe. Just like in part 1, we gave our feedback based on this data plus whatever we could gleen from the Early Show video preview. This segment concludes with summaries provided by listeners Bill, Gloria, and a special editorial commentary by Enzo.

We've also made the preview video from the early show available . It's a chance to get a better glimpse of the new Survivors beyond the static pictures and cheesy bios. It's an MPEG2 file and it's quite large weighing in at about 55MB. I can't guarantee it will play on everyone's machine. If you have trouble with it, let us know via email and I'll see about re-encoding it into other formats. I recommend you do a "save as" instead of just clicking the link: Survivor Guatemala Early Show Preview Video


So lets wrap up at guessing who from this new batch of Survivor contestants will be the first to go and listing the reasons we think each person may or may not have a chance at winning.

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. There are some definite cut-outs and garbled phrases in this segment that appear to be related to the automatic clipper/limiter function. It's not your player, it's us actively learning a new application. We'll try to make sure that doesn't happen again.

We're playing music from the podsafe music network. Check out that site if you're looking for some new tunes for your mp3 player.

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.
