Were you not on board the Max and Shirin bandwagons? Were you rooting for them to crash and burn just to hurt John’s feelings? Well brace yourselves for 80 minutes of delicious schadenfreude. And more than a few bleeps. Spoiler: John’s fandom will not go quietly into that good night.
We don’t waste any time in this episode before giving the people what they want: John’s take on the plight of Max and Shirin. Does Andy approach the situation with kid gloves, or does he pour a gallon- sorry, litre, because he’s Canadian- of salt in the wound?
We discuss Max’s time on Survivor, and whether or not he deserved John’s undying devotion. (He did.) We also discuss how the Max vote affects Shirin, and whether there is any way she can avoid being the next one targeted. At some point, we finally discuss the first episode of the evening, better known as Survivor’s semi-annual headfirst dive into sexism. Should Lindsey have been voted out? Has Dan ever really spoken to a woman? Is Rodney pretty much everything we expected?
We also talk about our Ultimate Survivor Bracket, this week’s Zero Percent Club (a conversation which may contain some profanity), and our predictions for who will go home next week.
Of course, we always welcome your comments. Please note that any comments regarding Shirin and/or Max that are not unironic and effusive praise will be immediately deleted. You can leave a comment here, tweet us @purplerockpod, or email us at purplerockpodcast on gmail. Thanks for listening!
