Historians - The Backstory:
Hello. My name is Mario Lanza and I
have been a
writer since August of 2001. In fact, at one point during the
show's peak (between 2001-2004), I was probably the most widely read
Survivor writer in the entire world.
The reason I put together the Survivor Historians podcast is because it
seemed to me like a great deal of Survivor history has been lost in
recent years. There are so many new fans of the show these
days, and so few original Borneo fans remaining, that practically the
entire history of Survivor has been rewritten to only include things
that have happened from season 12 (Exile Island) on. And as
much as I like the post Exile Island seasons, I just didn't think that
was fair. I didn't think it was right that a show with so
much history and so much significance had a fanbase that knew so little
about its most formative years.
And so, well, here we are. I put together the Survivor
Historians podcast in March of 2012. And I did so by
gathering together three of the sharpest and most knowledgeable
Survivor fans I have ever known. I got Paul Asleson from The
will destroy anyone on the face of the Earth in a Survivor trivia
contest, trust me on this), I got Beatles from Survivor Sucks (who is
pretty much the most knowledgeable Survivor fan on the #1 Survivor fan
site, and has been for years), and I got Jay Fischer, who is one of the
funniest and smartest guys I know, and who is also an old school
episode one fan just like the rest of us. And then of course
the fourth podcaster is me. Most people know me (Mario Lanza)
from when I was the head writer (2001-2004) at a website called
Survivor-Central. Either that or they know me from my project
down the funniest moments in Survivor history called the Funny 115.
In any case, I hope you like the Survivor Historians podcast.
I can't guarantee we will do a lot of them, but if you like them just
drop me an email and maybe we will do more.
And I hope you enjoy your brief foray into Survivor history.

the Survivor Historians, I would also recommend my friend Justin M.
Lesniewski's podcast "Welcome to the Midside." Justin has
friend of mine for years, and he has also been a sponsor of Historians
pretty much ever since the beginning. If you are looking for
another fun podcast to listen to, I would recommend checking his out.
