Last week on the Firewall & Iceberg Podcast, I asked you, the listeners, for a favor. I didn’t want to have to watch “Shedding for the Wedding,” so I pleaded with you to send in a bunch of good questions so we could devote most or all of the podcast to those. And y’all delivered – with far more good queries than we had room for in this show, in which we still discussed “Shedding for the Wedding,” but only as part of our occasional Dan’s Reality TV Round-Up segment, in which I ask Dan questions about shows I don’t watch. And after that, your questions. The run-down: 

Reality Round-Up
“Survivor: Redemption Island” – 02:00 – 07:00
“The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business” – 07:00 – 10:45
“America’s Next Top Model” – 10:15 – 14:20
“Shedding for the Wedding” – 14:25 – 20:02
“Top Chef” – 20:05 – 26:00
