    Shanni and Zach met up to talk about episode 8 of Total Madness, and despite their attempts not to get sidetracked, almost immediately began arguing about the Survivor Season 40 finale. Once they managed to get the show back on track, they covered both of the major fights from this episode in depth. Do you buy Nelson’s apology? Is Zach a true stan or a pretend stan? Was Aneesa doing too much? Plus we cover the most compelling elimination of the season thus far. All of this and much, much more!

Great Podcast

Loved the top 10 podcast! The three hours flew by. I’m probably what you would call a casual. But only because I didn’t discover the Challenge until 2017 and MTV doesn’t make all the seasons commercially available. Didn’t know Inferno was on YouTube. I’ll definitely watch that season.
