Dorky Geeky Nerdy #184 | Hawaii Trivia

This week we have got some Hawaii Trivia. Test your knowledge of the Aloha State with 30 facts, questions, and more. This is a state that’s been high on my list of places to visit, so come with me on a little virtual vacation.

Note: We’ve had a major issue with the site, DorkyGeekyNerdy.com. The RSS feed is no longer populating with episodes and I don’t know why. It seems to have started yesterday and I can’t seem to find the update/plugin that’s causing the issue.

That being said, I’m redirecting all traffic to our backup feed on Anchor. I’ve been debating doing this for some time and this sort of forced my hand. Anchor gives me more flexibility about ads and marketing. The downside is, you’ll get duplicates of all past episodes in your feed. My apologies, but I didn’t have a lot of time to come up with a more elegant solution (or warn you all).

The old site is still there and still running if you listen to episodes directly from there. That’s not changing any time soon. The issue will only come up when you use a Podcast Player (as most do).

Thanks for bearing with me and sorry for the delay.

  1. This is going to be a toss up. I don’t know what trivia I know, (Also, I fixed the articles tags.)

    Dorky – 6 right, 6 points – You’re hitting everything I know about the state early. This will make me crash and burn, I bet.

    Nerdy – 2 right, 6 points – I love that singer, I hope s/he gets the EGOT!

    There’s great trivia about the name Maui I learned from looking up Moana. The island is not named for the demi-god featured in the movie.
    “Native Hawaiian tradition gives the origin of the island’s name in the legend of Hawaiʻiloa, the navigator credited with discovery of the Hawaiian Islands. According to it, Hawaiʻiloa named the island after his son, who in turn was named for the demigod Māui.*

      Thanks for fixing the article. Usually, it’s auto-generated from the feed and I do some touch-ups. Today it was a mad panic to get it up and running.
