In this week's episode, hosts Lance Cartelli and Fox Van Allen, from the Big Brother Brothers podcast, dissect everything that went down in the surreal -- and totally fun -- Winners at War premiere, "Greatest of the Greats."

Your Survivor Brothers hosts discuss Amber Mariano and Natalie Anderson, the first two Castaways voted off the island and onto Edge of Extinction, and the incredibly interesting dynamics of the season's two star-studded tribes.

There's also sooo much more to breakdown. What did the Survivor Brothers think about the unlikely pairing of "Boston" Rob Mariano and Parvati Shallow? Which alliance is in the best position? Will Tony Vlachos continue to play an under-the-radar game? What about those new Fire Tokens?

Listen now to hear all the answers.
