This week, host Fox Van Allen is joined by Survivor podcaster and Parade columnist Mike Bloom to discuss the most recent episode of Survivor: Island of the Idols, "I Was Born at Night, But Not Last Night." In the installment, Kellee Kim's moment of inspiration leads to one of the best tribal councils in the show's history.

Stream the full episode right here:

Our Survivor Brothers hosts analyze Kellee's gutsy plan to give Dean Kowalski her immunity idol. They dish on Jamal Shipman's wild follow-up idol play for Noura Salman, and Janet Carbin's decision to decline an Island of the Idols advantage. They also talk about the episode's intense #MeToo discussion, and break down how the fear of women's alliances has dominated much of tribal council.

And you'll definitely want to hear Mike Bloom's special insights garnered from his pre-season visit to Fiji and his interviews with Jamal Shipman and Jack Nichting, who just became the first member of the Island of the Idols jury.
