Survivor premiered 20 years ago this week and has been a ratings juggernaut and CBS stalwart since, heading into its season 40 finale this month. Host Ben Blacker is a big fan of the series and, specifically, of host and showrunner Jeff Probst and his intuitive, empathetic, and conversational interview style. In 2016, Blacker got the opportunity to sit down with Probst to talk about showrunning, storytelling in the non-scripted medium, Probst's YA book "Stranded," and lots more.
