Episode 1: In The Beginning

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.

TW100: Redemption Island

It's Episode 100! I'm so excited with what we've done on this week's episode. It is easily one of our best ever and truthfully I think it's the best. This week we have a fatal 4-way with Chris VS Jonathan VS Carmela VS Ben and there's a twist. All of the questions will be questions from our first 50 episodes that nobody got right. 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. Thanks to all of you guys who have been with us since the beginning and welcome aboard to all of our new listeners.

Episode 12: Show Me That Smile

Thanks for checking out our show! If you love trivia you’ll love the show. If you love laughing you’ll love the show. If you love people making fools of themselves you’ll love the show. If you’re breathing you’ll love the show. I think that just about covers it. We jump right into it in Episode 12 with a question about Family Ties that is one of the funniest things we’ve ever done. At least, it’s funny to me. During the editing process I kept going back to listen to it because it was guaranteed to bring a smile to my face. Hope you guys love it as much as we do.
