Rob Cesternino and Akiva Wienerkur need a podcast and every week, Rob and Akiva spin a wheel of listener-submitted podcast ideas and whatever the wheel lands on, is what they podcast about next. This week, the wheel landed on "Rob & Akiva Get Dragged” which resulted in Rob and Akiva being joined by Grace Leeder, Beth Dixon, and Joy Stique to find out what their "drag" personas are in RAANAP episode 91. After Rob and Akiva figure out their "drag" personas, they go through the mailbag to hear what new ideas should be added to the wheel and then spin the wheel to see what will be coming next week. If you’re interested in skipping ahead to the mailbag at any point, skip to 1:28:16.

In a special offseason podcast, Rob Cesternino is joined by the co-host of the RHAP B&B, The Amazing Race recaps, and the Top Chef RHAP-up Mike Bloom, and the co-host of The Amazing Race recaps as well as the international Amazing Race podcasts Jessica Liese. As announced on the Survivor: Winners at War episode 13 feedback show, Mike Bloom challenged the listeners of Rob Has a Podcast to raise over $23,000 for the Direct Relief charity, getting personal protective equipment to the doctors and nurses on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. If this goal was met, Mike pledged to get a Survivor themed tattoo. This goal was met and well exceeded so in true Mike Bloom fashion, the tattoo that will end up going on his body forever will have to be determined using the Survivor season simulator known as BrantSteele. Earlier this week, Rob, Mike, and Jess asked the listeners of the podcast to submit their ideas and sketches for the tattoo. Since we had well over the 20 ideas needed for the simulation, the first podcast entails the crew narrowing the field down to 20 contenders pre-approved by Mike's wife Angela Bloom for the fake season Survivor: Islands of Ink. Now, this is the simulation of this fake Survivor season where the winner will be the tattoo that will go on the body of Mike Bloom forever.

I heard this story the last time Rob told it and cried through it that time too. For all the talent Rob shows during his regular podcasts, and the downright goofy ones, this one shines a light on just how talented and special he really is. What a great story to share with all of us. Your boys are very fortunate to have such a wonderful grandpa who raised his son to be a great person and father.
