Inside TV Podcast: Cochran from 'Survivor,' and 'Sons of Anarchy'

Posted on


He came. He saw. He rocked a sweater vest and refused to pull colored rocks. The equal parts entertaining and infuriating John Cochran coulda been a contender had he not flipped sides at the merge. Now, the ousted Survivor: South Pacific contestant joins Jessica Shaw and yours truly on the InsideTV Podcast to talk all about his controversial move, the chilly reception he received from the other jury members at Ponderosa, and the public’s positive and negative reactions to him. Will Cochran come back to play again? And has he received any additional dating advice from noted Lothario Papa Bear? All will be revealed!

Then, we get our motor runnin’ and head out on the highway to welcome Sons of Anarchy expert Mandi Bierly, who stops by to break down the SOA season 4 finale. Mandi reports back on her conversations with actor Ron Pearlman and exec-producer Kurt Sutter with hints on where things are heading next year in season 5. Plus, where does this season stack up when compared to the others? We make our picks from best to worst. (NOTE: The Sons of Anarchy discussion begins at the 29 minute mark if you want to skip right to it.)
