    Ep 140 - Total Madness E1 - Quarantine Pod (Audio not great)

    Ep 140 - Total Madness E1 - Quarantine Pod (Audio not great)

    We kick off covering this season of the Challenge practicing social distancing via Zoom.  Rand and Reg are joined by Jimmy and Rachel to discuss the new format, the parallels to real life, the notable missing castmembers and plenty of banter about Covid-19 and the Challenge.
     
    Audio is really really brutal throughout.  Still working out the kinks with Zoom, we'll see if we can improve next week.

    Ep 139 - WOTW 2 Halfway Preview

    Ep 139 - WOTW 2 Halfway Preview

    Recorded 2 weeks ago, 1,000 percent Reggie's fault for not getting this up!  Buttttt Rand, Reg, and Jimmy sat down to assess the Challenge at the halfway (third of the way) point!  We touch mostly on Laurel and Bananas, but also dish our thoughts on the pros and cons of the format, the overall assessment of the cast, and end it with a halfway fantasy draft!
     
    We'll try to get another pod out in the next two weeks or so to re-up as so much more has gone down!

    Ep 138 - AYTO 8.12 - FINALE

    Sorry we're a week late! (Actually, we're more than a week late!) We're finally here to break down the finale, the stragglers, the outcome, the post-finale tea and fallout + all the rumors from online.  We go a bit off tangent to talk about celebrities we think have hooked up + Ludacris deep tracks.  Thank you so much to MTV and to the cast and crew of Season 8 for putting together one of, if not, the best season of this show so far!  We'll be back on a periodic basis to pod about the Challenge + (eventually, hopefully?) Season 9!

    Ep 137 - AYTO 8.11 - You're Perfectly Aligned!

    After a week off to watch the VMA's (and specifically the Video Vanguard), we're back with the penultimate matchup ceremony.  We break down the fall out of the previous week's matchups, specifically Max's emotions + Justin's logic.  We also break down the 4 potential beam scenarios and which one's we think are most likely.  Reg goes on and on about Microsoft Excel for a bit before we wrap things up.  THE FINALE IS NEXT WEEK!  CANNOT BELIEVE THIS IS ALMOST OVER!  WILL THEY WIN!!!???!!!???

    Ep 136 - AYTO 8.10 - Reggie Tells All

    Before entering a one week hiatus due to the VMAs, the cast is really starting to make some progress!  Raige hits a bump in the road while Kari gets down to business.  Reg and Rand talk about Jerry Seinfeld, Reggie's ability to relate to Paige's past from the other side, and we go on and on as to why production decided to show certain things in #ConspiracyCorner. Keep the tweets comin! Two episodes left!

Great recaps

Love your ayto content, not a fan of your side conversations though. Would love to get through an episode without fast forwarding so I don’t miss relevant recaps. Maybe save the off topic stuff for the end so people can bow out if they’re not interested! Other than that I am a loyal listener and will continue to be that!

UPDATE: newest challenge podcast was awesome, I can tell you guys made a conscious effort to stay on topic. Much appreciated👏🏼thanks!

I love (and miss) this pod so much

I can’t believe I never wrote a glowing 5-star review back when AYTO was on and they were posing regularly! I love these recaps so much, I started listening back from their beginning (S5) during quarantine. Yes, that’s right. I am re-listening to their recaps. And laughing all the way through. Other reviewers complaining about side chatter obviously don’t appreciate Kids Who Kare projects as much as we do. My only complaint (Wish? Hope? Dream) is that they’d go back and rewatch/recap seasons 1-4 (available on CBS All Access now)!!

Stop Yawning!

this show is the best recap of AYTO but the male host needs to caffeinate before podcasting. He tries to continue talking through a yawn, super annoying and makes me yawn.
