Survivor Fans Podcast
Jo Ann and Stacy follow the hit reality show Survivor.

It is time to take a final look back at Survivor Caramoan. Most of us were satisfied with the finale. Your thoughts on the reunion show were very clear. It was a colossal flop. We all hope we never see that again. Pretty much everyone is happy for Cochran. The verdict on Dawn remains very split. Her gameplay this season was polarizing in a way we had not seen in a long time. One noble fan came to Sherri's defense. The teaser for season 27 was just plain vague, but we hold out hope that it will be awesome!

For each episode, we provide 3 podcasts: an episode recap, an interview with the castoff, and a chance for Survivor fans like yourself to sound off on what you saw and how you think the castaways are fairing in the game. Thirty two fans shared their thoughts on the finale, the overall season, and guesses for what season 27 might bring.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to the final Listener Feedback show of the season. We heard from: BrandonJ, EMP, Ronda, Nicki, Samantha, BrandonB, Casey, Christy, Mario, Schadenfreude, Steve, Johnny, Kenny, Shelley, James, Sean, Josh, DrewG, Lil' Russ, Aaron, Ed, Michael, Tim, Tim, Mikeybear, Jeremiah, Rashmi, BrandonA, Becca, Krista, Brian, and Paul

Congratulations to our JSFL winners: Trey and Ryan!

SFP Interview: Sherri Biethman from Survivor Caramoan


We interviewed Sherri Biethman on the Red Carpet at the finale of Survivor Caramoan. She started the game strong, calling the shots on her tribe and made having a goat in her alliance with Shemar a cornerstone of her strategy. Continuous losses and a tribe shuffle sent her scurrying to the safety with another goat in Phillip. Little did she know that she was destined to become the goat in the final tribal council.

Listen to this audio interview to hear how she was cast, her take on the final tribal council, her edit and lots more!

SFP Interview: Eddie Fox from Survivor Caramoan


We interviewed Eddie Fox on the Red Carpet at the Survivor Caramoan finale. Eddie survived against big odds to make it almost to the end. He and his buddy Reynold will go down in Survivor history as two of the most repeatedly deceived people to ever to play the game. His refreshingly positive outlook in spite of constantly being on the outside of the controlling alliances was a big reason for why he made it to day 38.

Listen to this audio interview to hear his view on the "cool kids" alliance, how he prepared for the game, his take on his edit, and lots more!

SFP Interview: Erik Reichenbach from Survivor Caramoan


We interviewed Erik Reichenbach on the Red Carpet at the finale of Survivor Caramoan. Erik started the season off in the minority alliance and had to patiently work his way back into the game. Once gain, he came within sight of the end, but unfortunately, made history this time for being medically evacuated on day 36.

Listen to this audio interview to hear the full scoop on the illness that sidelined him, how "night rice" led to starvation and lots more!

Caramoan Finale

Redemption Island 2 might have been a better title than Fans vs. Favorites. Of course, that is only now apparent in hindsight, and it would have been a bit of a spoiler for the fans if they had used that title. As it turned out, Cochran's redemption story was key to this whole bizarre string of events that composed season 26. He certainly earned the win. We covered the finale in Studio City, CA, had the pleasure to meet the cast and spend time with fellow super fans.

What did you think of the finale and the reunion show? Were you happy with the end result? How does Cochran compare to other Survivor winners? Where do you think his final tribal speech and defense ranks in Survivor history? Looking back in total, how does this season compare to others? What do you think about Survivor Blood vs. Water? Listener Feedback is due Wednesday, May 15th at 5pm PST.

We've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-1547. 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.

JSFL Update: We're still working on the details for the scoring. We expect to announce the winner(s) during the final LF show on Wednesday.

SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 13 of Survivor Caramoan


This week we interviewed Brenda Lowe. She left the game in episode 13. Brenda played an "under the radar" game and was likened to Purple Kelley for lack of screen time and confessionals for the first two thirds of the season. She eventually found her way into the majority alliance and then opened up more after the merge. Unfortunately for her though, she fell prey to Dawn the Destroyer and ended up being deceived by yet another imaginary bond that meant nothing in the context of the game.

Listen to this audio interview to hear details on the injury that plagued her throughout the game, how she felt about Dawn's betrayal, what really happened at that last immunity challenge and lots more!
