RHAP Rewind | Kid Nation Episode 1
Welcome to the RHAP Rewind! Each month, we’ll be popping in a new VHS tape to take a look back at some shows from the reality tv archives. Whether it’s a particular season, a full series, or anything in between, we’ll be rewinding the tapes and hopping to a new series each month.
Today, we hop back in time to September 19, 2007. This year saw the release of the very first iPhone, Shrek the Third, and of course, the premiere of Kid Nation! Rob Cesternino (@robcesternino) and Phil Thompson (@listenupphilip) travel to the lawless land on Bonanza City. There, these two podcasters begin their rewatch of Kid Nation with episode 1.
Kid Nation is an American reality tv show featuring 40 children between the ages of 8 and 15. Similar to Survivor, the children establish their own governing rules and society with little adult supervision. Each week, the town council elects gold stars to one child. Kid Nation ran on CBS for one season.
