The Purple Rock Survivor podcast: Tony Vlachos interview (part two)

Purple Rock Survivor podcast: Tony Vlachos interview part 2 Warning: We did not edit out profanity in this podcast. If you are offended by profanity, you may want to skip these episodes. At long last, we interview the winner of Survivor Cagayan, Tony Vlachos. We ask Tony all about his Survivor history, how the reality on the island compared to what was on TV, and the best parts of the game that didn’t make it on the show. We also happily admit how wrong we were about Tony early on, and why we hope others try to copy his gameplay in the future.

The Purple Rock Survivor podcast: Cagayan Finale “It’s do or die”

Purple Rock Survivor podcast: Finale- It’s do or die

It’s been almost a week since the finale, aren’t you ready to hear a podcast about it?

At long last, we finally get to talk about Tony. What’s that? Every week, you say? Fair enough. We celebrate Tony’s victory and the methods and votes that got him there, then discuss whether Woo’s decision to sit beside Tony at the end was the worst Survivor decision of all time.

More importantly, we discuss whether Tony’s victory will cause other players to attempt to copy the “Tony strategy”, and then fail miserably at it in ways that are thoroughly entertaining to watch.

We discuss all of these things with one our most frequent guests, and we even bring in a surprise for her to celebrate her claiming the #1 guest spot.

The Purple Rock Survivor podcast: Cagayan Episode 12 “Straw that broke the camel’s back”

Purple Rock Survivor podcast: Straw that broke the camel’s back

It’s the Kass episode! Except unlike the “Jefra episode”, we actually discuss Kass for a little while. We pose the important question “Why, Kass? Seriously, why?” and then do our best to answer.

Of course, we also have to discuss Tony’s latest moves and upcoming move and whether or not we believe they were effective. And we examine whether Spencer’s underdog edit is one for a winner or one for an oh-so-close loser. We also tell the Spencer bandwagon to settle down with their heaping praise for his game; we do no such thing for the Tony bandwagon, because we’re driving that thing.

Then we bring in another new guest, and we ask her to help us evaluate not only Kass’ chances this season, but how Kass would have fared when paired against some previous finalists (and a few non-finalists). Is there anyone Kass could beat? Spoiler: yes.

The Purple Rock Survivor podcast: Cagayan Episode 11 “Havoc to wreak”

Purple Rock Survivor podcast: Havoc to wreak

Farewell, Tasha. You’ll be missed. Unfortunately, we don’t spend much time talking about Tasha in this episode other than evaluating her chances if she had stayed in the game.

We break down the reasons behind the Kass/Tony fight, whether Kass and Spencer had the right plan (and how well they executed that plan), and how many of these final five still stand a chance at winning.

We welcome a new guest to the show from the Great White North, and Andy delights in the 2-1 Canadian:American ratio. We discuss the impact that rooting interest has on our enjoyment of the show, and which seasons our enjoyment of the show was affected by our rooting interests. We also explain exactly why we’re so interested in the possibility of seeing Tony in front of the jury.

The Purple Rock Survivor podcast: Cagayan Episode 10 “Chaos is my friend”

Purple Rock Survivor podcast: Chaos is my friend

This week, we talk about Jefra more than we ever have (or ever will again). In this hastily thrown-together episode with no editing, you’ll get all the “ummm” and awkward pauses you’ve always wanted!

We also spend a lot of time talking about Tony’s move and whether Spencer is over-rated.

The Purple Rock Survivor podcast: Cagayan Episode 9 “Sitting in my spy shack”

Purple Rock Survivor podcast: Bag of Tricks

No hashtagged chaos this week, as Tony and Woo’s old alliance mates welcome them back (some more willingly than others). Once again Trish shines in the social game, kissing the boo-boo that Tony’s betrayal left on Jefra.

Tony, of course, keeps being Tony. And we finally get an appearance from Tyler Perry’s immunity idol. (For more explanation on the reason it’s called the Tyler Perry idol- if you haven’t gotten enough of one from us- check out this article.) We debate whether Tony will now just coast to the endgame, or if he will be incapable of complacency.

We also answer a WordPress commenter’s question (Thanks, Katrina!), bring in a guest that has been feeding us questions for weeks, and somehow avoid discussing Trish’s comment about Morgan’s boobs.
