Episode 55 - The Battle Of Vanuatu
Do you remember the great Battle of Vanuatu of 2006? You know, that epic battle where two pairs went head to head to find out who would emerge from the jungle as the champion?

Episode 50 - The 7th Wonder Of The Ancient World
We have to ask this: is David Oldfield the Australian Survivor contestant with the most nicknames in history?

Episode 48 - The Master Tactician
Just what makes David Oldfield such a good player of Survivor? Is it his ability to seemingly fit in with every single group? His ability to cook up a storm? His ability to have Dicko seemingly rag him at every single moment? His ability to have people give him immunity? Or is it all of the above? This week, you're about to find out all of that and more, as we continue to find out just why Mr Oldfield is perhaps the most underrated Australian Survivor player the show has ever seen.

Episode 47 - Wayne Gardner Interview
He's one of Australia's greatest ever sportsman. A man who created history as Australia's first ever 500cc motorcycle World Champion. A man who had a tickertape parade in his honour, has the key to the city of Wollongong and has even had a movie made about him.

So we're honoured to be able to bring you the legend that is Wayne Gardner to talk about exactly that: his time on Australian Survivor. In this chat you'll learn the surprising reason he ended up out in Vanuatu. You'll also learn just how deep his friendship with 'Leechy' actually went.

Episode 46 - You Don't Win Friends With Salad
Salad. Ugh. Who actually likes that stuff? Not Elton Flatley, that's for damn certain. In fact, Elton just wants steak. All the steak. We're sure he likes steak more than he likes smashing stuff. And let's be honest, we know how much he loves doing that. So realistically, in listening to this episode you know damn well what you're about to get right? Basically us discussing how much Elton hates salad and loves steak? Well yes. But there is also the small factor of this episode being a pretty damn significant one. How significant? Well perhaps you need to listen to us talk about it to find out! Get to clicking, and get your steak sizzling. Elton will approve if you do so.

Episode 45 - Amber Petty Interview
You know her, you love her and you want to hear from her again. That's right, the one and only Amber Petty is BACK to chat to us once more, but this time in an official capacity on this show and not on a different show to try and create this show. Does that make sense? No? Well...we'll explain it on the episode. All you need to know now is that you're set for an incredible interview from Amber, who goes into detail about how she got on the show, which players she knew and which she didn't, just what relationships were formed on the beach (and off the beach) and also digging deep into the details about just what happened between her and Fiona. Added to this some pretty juicy details about other aspects out there in Vanuatu and you won't believe that you didn't listen to this episode sooner! Like...sooner meaning now right!? YES! Now! So get to it, and get you some Amber!

Episode 44 - Weekend at Amber's
Amber Petty. That's all we need to say to get you excited for the episode this week. Because, seriously, what else more do you need? Perhaps a bit of risotto? A bit of breast meat? A bit of Justin Melvey being a fly? Sure, they will get you excited too, but Amber Petty is where it's all at. So much so that you could carry her around, make her swim back to Sydney and then still find yourself having a grand old time. Don't believe us? Then perhaps you need to listen to the episode just to see what we're on about! You're welcome.
