I'm really honored to welcome my guests Jon Harrison and Chris Kohler to the show this week. I met Jon at Podcast Movement 2015. His field of expertise is easy to appreciate for game lovers. His book and his talks are focused on how the things that you learned while playing video games is the same stuff that you need to know to succeed in life and in business. You can find his podcast called Classically Trained at www.classicallytrained.net and you can check out his book Mastering the Game at www.allegamy.com. I’ve never met Chris in person but I feel like I know him very well. He’s one of the gang over at www.goodjobbrain.com. This is one of my favorite podcasts and was actually the show that inspired me to start Trivial Warfare. He’s also part of the crew over at www.wired.com and is the host of their Game|Life Podcast which you can find here http://www.wired.com/tag/gamelife-audio/. You can find his book Power Up here - http://goo.gl/mueVb0. The two of them have forgotten more video game trivia than I’ve ever known. When I saw the opportunity to have them go head to head in a Trivial Warfare Video Game showdown episode I jumped at the opportunity. Both guys were class acts and did a great job. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Chris is back in the house! It was great to get him going on today's show. We had a great time recording this weeks show together and it comes through in the recording. It helps that we had Carmela back in the house as well. The hostess with the mostest was on fire this week. This is one of our snarkier shows which added to the humor. There were a ton of outtakes to choose from for the end of the show, be sure to listen to the end to hear the one I picked. In today's show we kick those nasty thoughts and explore what happens when you call 1-900-MixALot as well as 867-5309. We explore the world of Quentin Tarantino and try and guess at his favorite fictional cigarettes and find out what Billy Ripken had written on his bat that got his baseball card recalled.
Hey Warheads! Marc is back for another week in the hosting chair and we have a special guest contestant Nick Seuberling from Inside the Jungle and Podcaster's Group Therapy. Nick brought his A+ game to the show, but was it enough to beat Jonathan in a head to head match? Only one way to find out! Today's show features questions about Children's games, NHL Hockey, Marzipan (seriously, Marzipan), and The Wa-Wa-Wa-Wa-Waterboy. Thanks for listening! JO
Joel Sharpton from the Always Listening: Podcast Reviews podcast is a guest contestant this week filling in for Chris while he recovered from his wedding and honeymoon. We didn't take it easy on Joel and he did a great job
We're also happy to welcome Marc back into the hosts chair! Summer proved to be a difficult time for Marc to make it in to the recording sessions and we're thrilled that he's back in the host rotation.
Make sure to listen for Marc and Joel falling on their faces in the Warm it up Chris segment and also for the love shared for bad early 80's bands and bad movies.
Make sure you listen to the end of the show this week as we make a major announcement about the show moving forward!
Thanks - JO
