    Sorry I haven’t had time to leave much feedback this season but rest assured I’m still out here listening and enjoying every podcast. I thoroughly enjoy your in-depth analysis as always but especially for this epic Tribal Council that ended up with the infamous rock draw tie-breaker.

    Also, kudos on the new web page format! It’s been a while since I viewed it and I didn’t know you are now including a photo with hilarious caption for each episode. I LOVE the caption for Ep 12 with Caleb building his tower of cards at the RI Duel:

    “I hope that the first tribal council I attend as a jury member features semantic arguments about the proper phrasing of idiomatic metaphors.”

    This had me laughing out loud! Thanks for being one of the only Survivor podcasts I listen to that understood that the correct idiom is “Ruffle Feathers” as Tyson pointed out. Quite a few other podcasters thought “Rustle Feathers” was appropriate and that Hayden had embarrassed Tyson for being wrong. I knew you two would get it right!

    However, I’m curious why you both pronounce Gervase’s name as “jur-VAYS” instead “JUR-vuss” which is how everyone is saying his name including Gervase himself:
