The Saniac Podcast is more than just your ordinary Challenge podcast. Unlike the other 1.2 million Challenge podcasts, The Saniac Podcast brings you high quality audio, one mediocre co-host and the untapped intellectual side of reality TV. In 2019 we expanded into an all encompassing Challenge publication. We produce live weekly recaps, written recaps, Challenge news, blogs, interactive quizzes, discussions and a whole slew of other fabulous Challenge content. Recaps are live on our Facebook page the day after the Challenge airs – Thursdays at 8:30pm EST.  


Behind the Mic

Zach Calhoun

MTV lifer, failed musician, and entertainment elitist. Zach is the kind of person who can’t take his eyes off of a bad car wreck, which serves as the perfect real life parallel to his love of online gossip drama.

Shanni Suissa

Shanni has been on a silent game losing streak since the day she was born. Once told to pipe down, Shanni rebelled and took to the mic. Combining her gift of the gab and love of the Challenge, The Saniac Podcast is Shanni’s brain child. 

Behind the Keyboard

Hannah Okosisi

In March 2018, Hannah started unleashing her opinions with lists recapping Challenge episodes as they aired. Fans grew eager to read her pieces motivating Hannah to move her recaps to a more established home. Luckily, the Saniac Podcast asked her to join the team. Hannah loves working with the Saniac crew and having her articles reach a wider Challenge fan base. Recently she expanded her content to produce fun interactive Sporcle quizzes from a wide range of Challenge trivia.
