Dorky Geeky Nerdy #104 | New Zealand

Anyone else need a vacation from 2021, already? Me too.

This week, we’re going someplace beautiful, warm, and (effectively) Covid-free. We’re heading to New Zealand for some trivia this week. It’s been on my travel list for a long time and so I wanted to pay them a visit (virtually).

Stay tuned for other vacation destination places later on this year so we can travel in our minds and just enjoy ourselves.

Dorky Geeky Nerdy #102 | Feel-Good Movies

Let’s start 2021 off right, shall we?

This week, we’re all about feeling good with thirty questions from movies that leave us smiling like big saps as the credits roll. Something funny, touching, or just plain silly makes these movies a nice “comfort food” for watching when times are tough.

We’ll kick this year off by leaving 2020 behind and having a few laughs and and some happy tear. Sound good? Then let’s get to it.

Dorky Geeky Nerdy #100 | Star Trek Spectacular

Has it really been one-hundred episodes? Feels like it was only yesterday I was putting this thing together on a whim. Well, here we are. 100 episodes. Over 30,000 episode downloads. What a wild ride.

This week, we’re going back to where it all began, Star Trek. This time, the questions can come from anywhere in the Star Trek universe. Any series. Any movie. And elsewhere.

Also, we’re turning this episode up to 40. That’s right, the Freaky Round is back. Well, don’t just sit there letting me prattle on, get going and listen!

Dorky Geeky Nerdy #97 | Quotable 1970’s Trivia

Between the turbulent 60’s and Reagan-era 80’s, sat the 1970’s. A period of transition. For this week’s Quotable episode, we’re offering a new spin. Each round will be from a different area of the 1970’s. Round one will be movie quotes. Round two, TV show quotes. Round three will be real-world quotes from world leaders, celebrities, and so on.

Pretty simple, right?

The Arecibo Observatory has collapsed

(Sorry for the double-whammy of sad news, it’s just one of those days)

The observatory had been shut down since August from a cable snap that had punched a huge hole in the dish. But yesterday, the structure collapsed catastrophically.
