Major Reality Shows Edit
The most popular and well-covered show, the coverage has evolved over the years. Currently, coverage during the season consists of multiple podcasts. Survivor Know-it-Alls is recorded live following the east-coast airing of the show. The following day, Rob interviews the eliminated contest in a short-interview. Later in the week, Rob recaps the episode in depth with a former Survivor player. Rob also answers voicemails from listeners as well as covering Twitter news, featuring a guest from the Survivor or RHAP community. This portion is usually included in the recap podcast, although it is sometimes released as a separate podcast. As of Survivor: Kaôh Rōng, the voicemail podcast has completely separated from the recap podcast.
Several weekly podcasts have also come into fruition over the course of RHAP's Survivor tenure coverage. Starting around Survivor: Cagayan, former RHAP blogger Jordan Kalish served as a co-host for the segment "This Week in Survivor History," which describes events that happened in previous seasons during the week that particular episode airs. David Bloomberg, creator of Reality News Online, started "Why _____ Lost" with Survivor: Cambodia, where he discussed why the most recent player was voted out by using his previously-written rules of the game. In Survivor: Kaôh Rōng, Josh Wigler (podcaster, Survivor reporter, and co-author of The Evolution of Strategy) began his weekly podcast "The Wiggle Room," which focused on the story and the characters of the season. As of 2016, Rob does on average six Survivor podcasts per week.
