Re-Air: Libby Vincek Helps Recap ‘Ghost Island’

Another fun episode to revisit in the midst of the “Survivor” mini-offseason — our first interview with castaway Libby Vincek!

On this episode, Taylor Gaines and Tyler B. Commons cover everything from Wendell’s seasons with the Queen of Ponderosa, from his power relationship with Dom to Laurel holding steady to Wild Card Donathan. Interesting insights to revisit in view of how the final vote turned out. They also talked with Libby about living at Ponderosa, being on TV, mentally breaking down on the island, and (*2018 ALERT*) determined once and for all whether it was Yanny or Laurel.

Re-Air: Interview with Joe Del Campo from ‘Survivor’

This week, we wanted to revisit the most jaw-dropping interview we’ve ever done from the Fauxworthy Podcast days. … Taylor Gaines is joined by Ty Commons and “Survivor” castaway Joe Del Campo to talk about navigating his way through a season with people who were decades younger than him, eating too much after his fatal reward win, the intensity and sometimes hilarity of his FBI days, and learning how to love life in the face of tragedy.

Re-Air: Original Interview with Michelle Schubert from ‘Survivor’

The “Survivor” crew unites to welcome another very special guest to the show! This time, it’s Michelle Schubert from Season 33, Millenials V. Gen-X.

Taylor, Levi, Ty, Jordan and Michelle have a wide-ranging conversation covering what has stuck with her from the experience, Michelle’s interesting TV-watching habits, how she felt about the way she was presented on TV, whether final tribal was predetermined, what really happened when the cyclone hit the island and whether she thought about quitting.

They also discuss what it’s like being a Christian on the island, some divine intervention from early in the game, the most common reason people reject her message and being a woman on the internet.

Finally, they move into the rapid-fire round, asking important questions like “cupcake or muffin,” whether time exists, whether she’s ever had any medieval diseases, what if you woke up and everything was different, calling versus texting, her favorite Bible translation, and her daily motivational reminder.
