Had to stop listening

By Kirlojo - Nov 13 2019
Read more
I love trivia and in that sense this is a good podcast. But had to stop listening because Jonathan just seems like a bully in his treatment of co-hosts and guests and such, and whines and makes excuses when he’s wrong. Unfortunately it seems like this is just how he is- I tried to listen to his other podcasts, but he’s almost even more unkind and condescending on those shows.

Addicted to Trivial Warfare

By Rose Ashline - Oct 21 2019
Read more
I discovered Trivial Warfare a few months ago and have steadily digested every episode I can get my hands on at a rate of 8+ hours a week. As a girl who has always reveled in her nerdiness and has alway sought to be a connoisseur of random and possibly useless facts, trivia has always been an interest, but this podcast, along with joining a local pub trivia team, has helped to fan the flames. As a mom, college student professional cleaning fairy (i.e. housekeeper), I have precious little time to sit and read, but when I'm working I pop in my earbuds and learn and giggle my way through several episodes. Can't get enough!

This episode originally aired as episode TW85 and it's still one of my favorites. We were in our second year and we had just started bringing on guests with regularity. It was these episodes in the 80's that really made me feel great about the direction the show was heading and i'm thrilled to share this with you again. Enjoy!

Episode 1: In The Beginning

Podcast cover
Read more

Episode 1 was a ton of fun to make. Of course, it wasn't our first try. It was actually our third try to start this thing. I still have the old files. Maybe some day I'll brush them off and share them. Anyway, I think that we were both on top of our game here, not necessarily in terms of knowing all of the answers, but definitely in terms of having fun. We were both in a good mood and it showed. I think my favorite moment was when I realized that I received a question about James Cook directly after answering a question about James Kirk. That was a complete accident which is why it was brilliant.

We're about to see just how much we've learned from doing the show. Scott Barber is our guest host and he did a fantastic job pulling together the questions as well as what we guessed the first time we got it wrong.

Due to time constraints this week's episode is a little shorter than usual. This game was done with 3 rounds and 2 midpoints before the standard gauntlet to make sure we had enough time to have fun.
