Our second episode of 2022 and we’ve got another author episode with Michael Crichton Trivia. The Jurassic Park author wrote a ton of books, created numerous screenplays, and even directed films. How well do you know his works? Let’s test those trivia skills.
Congrats! You made it to 2022! Let’s celebrate with donuts! This week, we’re kicking off the year with The Simpsons Trivia. That venerable animated family has been with us since 1989 and has been on the air longer than any single animated series in American TV history. So, we’ve got a lot of ground to cover.
This week’s episode more than meets the eye. Well, actually, just the subject matter. Otherwise it’s just another thirty trivia questions and this week, we’re tackling Transformers Trivia.
This is our last episode of 2021, so I want to wish everyone out there a safe and happy New Year. This year wasn’t the one we had hoped for, so here’s to 2022 being better. If you haven’t gotten your booster shot yet, go get one. It’s the best thing we “regular Joes and Janes” can do to push back the pandemic.
And hats off to doctors, nurses, and everyone else out there keeping us safe, healthy, and fed. A double-Happy New Year to you!
Can you Name That Christmas Movie? We’ll give you three actors from the film and you have to guess the Christmas movie (or a movie that takes place during Christmas).
I know these “Name That” episodes are some of the listeners’ favorites, so why not dive in for the Holidays? As always, you’ve got three rounds of ten questions each. Good luck and happy holidays.
Update: Geeky Round #4 initially had the wrong answer (I read the answer for #3 a second time). If you re-download the episode, you’ll have the right answer for #4.
They’re blaring out of stores and radios, so why not have a little Christmas Song Trivia to kick off the season. This week, I’m giving you a snippet of the lyrics and you’ve got to guess the song. Some are common tunes and others are more obscure, traditional ones.
Either way, I think everyone is going to have a little fun. Grab some egg nog and let’s get started.
Feel like cheating? Here’s a Spotify Playlist with all the songs on it.
All snuggled up in your Hobbit hole? Let’s get into some Hobbit Trivia for this week’s show. We covered The Lord of the Rings way, way back in Episode Four, so it’s high time we got to the original work by JRR Tolkien.
As always, it’s three rounds of ten questions each. Miss too many and there’s no second breakfast for you.
Also: 150 episodes! Seems like the episodes are just flying by.
Listener request! And I’ve been wanting to tackle World War II trivia for some time. I know it’s a little jarring to jump from Peanuts to World War II, but we’ve got a lot of ground to cover here at DGN. So let’s dive in.
As always, it’s three rounds of ten questions each. If you need rules or scorecards, you can find them here.
I don’t know about you, but Thanksgiving makes me think of Charlie Brown and Snoopy. So, this week, we’re going to do some Peanuts Trivia for this week’s show.
Here in the US, it’s Thanksgiving week. A time for food, fun, and traditions. One of the traditions in our house to sit and watch some of the Peanuts holiday specials.
Can you name the superhero with only their compatriots and villains? That’s the goal of this week’s Name That Superhero Trivia game. I give you three people that are associated with the hero, you just have to name them. Simple format, challenging trivia.
And here’s a reminder that the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Shop is open and ready to drop some show merchandise into your life.
Do you have a plan to score well on today’s episode? Well, good luck with this week’s show, Battlestar Galactica Reboot Trivia. We’re heading back to the days of 2004 before we had any idea of what this reboot of a 1970s show would look like. Have fun and see you again next week!
Update: I had the episode in the can when the news came in about the passing of Dean Stockwell, who played John Cavill on the show. Dean Stockwell had a wide and varied career with many roles we geeks would love from Dune to Quantum Leap. RIP, Mr. Stockwell. You will be missed.
