Our Genius recollections continue as wise guy and apex podcaster Myles Nye, who may have played more games of Food Chain than anyone else, returns to give his take on the second season's opening salvo. We discuss how and why the game plays out so differently with varied groups of people and the strengths and weaknesses in its design after Myles (and his fellow #junghyungs) gets a lesson in how the youth talk these days. As always you can listen below, here, or on iTunes here.

With all of the hype for Season 4 of Black Mirror (there's a lot of buzz around Lenny), it seemed like the perfect time to revisit the seasons that made the show such a hit. Colin's rating was too low to risk podcasting with him, so instead I invited our good friend and futuristic experiment Taran Armstrong to go through our favourite episodes and the show's place in the TV landscape. As always, you can listen below, here, or on iTunes here.
Everyone's favourite techno-thriller returned to our screens over the holidays to supply its usual festive cheer. With Colin still trapped inside a simulation looking for his perfect match, Amy (@itsamyanne) took his place to discuss the latest season, its place in the series, and just what the DJ did to deserve it. As always, you can listen below, here, or on iTunes here.

As debate rages over the twists and turns (mostly the twists) of the Survivor finale, we look at why this season ended the way it did and the implications for future seasons. How 'deliberate' was Ben's win, and how tainted is the season - and the franchise - by it? With this new final four format for the foreseeable future, how can and should players adapt to it? And, with Chrissy apparently inspiring mothers everywhere, what will it take for one to finally win Survivor? All this and more on this season's final show, available below, here, or on iTunes here.
