I'm not going to lie and say I've tried out for "Survivor" 10 times. It's actually closer to 20, but who's counting? So when a new season of my favorite reality show returns, I'm all in. The 35th season of "Survivor" begins Sept. 27 and I'm sure to be glued to my TV. The theme this season is Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers. I'm not sure what that means, except maybe that show producers love alliteration. Regardless, I'm looking forward to another season of watching contestants outwit, outplay and outlast each other. -Terry Terrones

If you're a fan of Malcolm Gladwell, author of books such as "The Tipping Point" and "Blink," then you're in for a treat with his podcast. Each episode of "Revisionist History" tackles an event, person or idea from the past and reinterprets it, looking for something overlooked or misunderstood. In "The Lady Vanishes," Gladwell talks about a female painter in the late 19th century who became famous for her work "The Roll Call" but then seemingly vanished. In "The Big Man Can't Shoot," he wonders why famous basketball player Wilt Chamberlain refused to better his free throw record by shooting underhand. -Jennifer Mulson
