Survivor Podcast: Ethan Zohn Opens Up About His Cancer Battle and That Emotional Edge of Extinction Moment

'Survivor: Africa' winner Ethan Zohn takes us behind the scenes of 'Survivor: Winners at War'

Fox Van Allen

Survivor: Winners at War, the epic 40th season of Survivor, may be over. But there's still plenty to talk about!

In a special, post-finale episode of TV Guide's Survivor Brothers podcast, our own Fox Van Allen goes one-on-one with Survivor: Africa winner (and fourth Winners at War boot) Ethan Zohn for an in-depth interview about his epic journey through the latest season and his battle with Hodgkin's lymphoma.

How did the cancer survivor prepare for his return to reality TV -- and how is he dealing with the current COVID-19 pandemic? What was it like to suffer his first-ever Survivor blindside? What was going through his mind when he collapsed on Edge of Extinction? And what happened when Ethan asked if he could bring CBD with him to the Fijian islands?
