Like other Unspoiled! shows, in this one we have one person who has seen the entire series (Jaime) and one who knew absolutely nothing about the show going in (Krista). And sometimes we have special guest hosts from across the Unspoiled! Network. Join us on this crazy magical island!
The Constant - 6.17 The End
This is it, guys. We've made it to the finale! And while I fully expected to just blubber through the entire thing, I pulled through and didn't shed one tear! Krista had an interesting take on what it all means, and it's a theory I've never heard or considered before. And, while we interpreted how it all wrapped up differently, we aren't in opposition.
We will be taking a little break, but we want to come back with an episode where we answer all of your questions. So get them in to us! I'll make a post in the Facebook groups, but you can also send questions on Twitter @theconstantpod, or email@example.com . Ask away, everyone!
Thank you to everyone who stuck with us from the beginning, and all of you that we picked up along the way. We have loved doing this show so much, and knowing you guys were there with us means so much. Thank you to Natasha for taking us under her wing and supporting this endeavor. She's the best boss bitch two newbie podcasters could ask for. We hope you come along with us with our next adventures in podcasting. We'll be back soon with The Punisher, and The Vampire Diaries will return after that. You all are the best. Until we return: Namaste, m*th*rf*ck*rs.
The Constant - 6.16 What They Died For
In this, the penultimate episode of Lost, we learn which candidate steps up to the task of being the new Jacob - and it's no surprise who. We say goodbye, and good riddance, to Charles Widmore and his lapdog Zoe. We worry about the fate of Richard Alpert and Frank Lapidus. And we speculate on what is going to happen in the finale next week.
If you have questions for Krista regarding the series on a whole, DM Jaime on Facebook, twitter (@theConstantPod), or email at firstname.lastname@example.org . We'll be doing a follow up episode or two so get those questions in. Hey, you may even have some questions for Jaime, who knows! We welcome all inquiries.
The Constant - 6.15 Across the Sea
Krista has the same reaction as everyone else with this episode, which was: WHY NOW? WHO CAAAARES? Join us as we talk through this speedbump on our way to the finale.
So what happens? We get Jacob and MIB's origin stories. They're twins, born from a shipwrecked woman who is then killed by Mother, played by the incandescent Allison Janney. She raises them on lies, which backfires on her later. We learn about the Heart of the Island. More questions are raised. Few answers are given. And sure, this exact thing is probably a big reason why people were frustrated with Lost. I just prefer, personally, to get through this and focus on what's coming up. Are you ready? We're not ready.
Also, just a heads up on the audio. Krista's good mic broke and there's a bit of background noise from her roommate, so it's not as crisp as it usually is, but it's not horrible. I did the best I could with the editing.
The Constant - 6.14 The Candidate
If you've been with us since season 1, you've probably been wondering how Krista would react to this episode. Well...she didn't rage quit!
A moment of silence for our departed friends, Sun, Jin, and Sayid.
The Constant - 6.13 The Last Recruit
In this episode, we've got some bombs, some possible murder, and the groups split again, though this time it seems that Jack is on his own with the LockeMonster. Everyone else heads to Hydra and are immediately captured by Widmore's people, but not before the long awaited reunion between Jin and Sun happens.
It's getting closer and closer to the end now, guys, and Krista isn't handling it well.
The Constant - 6.12 Everybody Loves Hugo
We're getting closer and closer to the end and Krista is starting to freak out. Here's a drinking game for you: every time Krista says she's scared, or every time she says she hates this, DRINK.
In happier news, we have Libby and Hurley finding each other in the Sideways Universe and it predictably made me cry, as did Michael, which I explain because it surprised even me. We have some discussion of what Krista thinks is going to happen, there is some praise of Jack, and a lot of love for Hurley. But that's right there in the title.

Customer ReviewsSee All
If you have never seen LOST before, this is the perfect podcast to listen along with! Follow a first timer and a seasoned fan take the amazing journey through this show. I loved LOST when it was on. It was my first deep dive into a fandom that came together in forums and online. It was the perfect water cooler show and it's great to hear a LOST virgin navigate the story and mysteries!
It gets there
While the later episodes get much better the early episodes are plagued by massive tangents. I’m not always averse to these but three tangents at twenty minutes apiece is just too much. And while the recapitulation does get tighter, the hosts never quite get over the need to be critical rather than critique the show. Some of this is justified by the narrative, but other times it feels like splitting hairs for the sake of it. This often leads to the misidentification of perceived false conflict in the show, even when talking would not resolve the plot point under discussion. In a similar vein the tendency to apply what they might do themselves in these situations can unintentionally come across as lecturing, and misses that the great triumph of these characters is their fallibility.
That said, when they break from the recap to offer analysis, the insights justify working through the rest of it. And the deeper they get into the show, they err ever more on the analytical rather than tangential side of things. All told it’s a show that has its good points and finds its way, but not without some serious early stumbles.
Hooked on Lost all over again!
I was unbelievably addicted to Lost when it was on TV, and this podcast is the perfect way to get right back into all of the mysteries and twists. I find myself looking forward each week to hear unspoiled Krista's reactions and theories as they make their way through the series. The podcast gets better and better as they go through the seasons -- definitely recommend to any fan of Lost and podcasts.
