Now that they require a payment for the past catalog and weekly episodes (note: biweekly episodes are still free), I decreased my rating from 4 to 2. The benefit of paying before was a chance to join the quiz and contribute questions. Now you have to pay to get regular content, and that's a trend I don't support in podcasting.

Description

TW167:The Trivialympics
02:02:22

This week's show features Ken, Matt, Neal and Jeff from Triviality, AJ Mass from Beat My Guest, and Andy Saunders from Complete the List.

Andy has been a TW supporter for a long time now and it was great to meet AJ and the Triviality crew in Boston earlier this year. I have had the idea for a big trivia podcast crossover brewing for a while but meeting everybody and getting to each other was the thing that pushed it over the top.

As Triviality, Beat My Guest and Complete the List have grown over the last year I've been excited about the expansion of our little niche. Each show has found it's audience and goes about things a little bit differently. I knew I wanted to highlight that when we did our first big crossover event. So that's exactly what we did.

Today's game features 4 different mini-games. Each one is a modified version of one of the podcasts represented. Each show will be competing with the others across the different formats to crown a winner of the first ever Trivialympics.

I'm in LOVE with it!

This week we introduce our friend Carmela on the show. She's stepping in to do some guest hosting for us and at the same time to "bring a little class to the joint," as Chris would say. Speaking of Chris, be sure to listen for his epic meltdown near the end of the show. It's a thing of beauty.

This week's show notes will be a little late but they should be up by mid-week. Don't fret, I'm working on them.

Episode 12: Show Me That Smile
36:59

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. Reach out to us at trivialwarfare@gmail.com and let us know what you think.

Episode 1: In The Beginning
28:27

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.
