Today's show features one of the best collections of trivia players we've had on the show in a single game. We start with Colby Burnett. Colby is the first and only person to win both the Jeopardy Teachers Tournament and the following year's Tournament of Champions. Next up is Steve Bahnaman. Simply put, Steve is one of the best quizzers in the world and he proved in 2015 by winning more than $100K on the game show 500 Questions. And last but not least is our own 2016 Listener's Tournament champion and 2016 Geek Bowl Champion Russ Friedewald. Russ is humble, but don't let him fool you. In a pub quiz format he's one of the best players in the world.
We put these three trivia giants head to head in a triple threat match in a game written and hosted by Jonathan. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed creating this one.

For a year now, ever since we did the awesome Harry Potter episode, we've had one request come through louder and more frequently than any others.
You wanted a wrestling episode? You've got a WRESTLING EPISODE!
We've teamed up with the awesome guys from Ring Rust Radio to bring you a Trivial Warfare Wrestling Bonus.
The Machine is back in the house. Jeffrey Seguritan was fresh off of a 2nd place finish at a regional trivia tournament when we recorded. And by fresh off, I mean he stopped at a Starbucks to get a Wi-Fi signal on his drive home. Unfortunately for Jeffrey we couldn't maintain a good connection inside the Starbucks so he recorded the majority of this episode from his car. Whatever it takes to get the job done!
Ben hosts this week's triple threat match between Jeffrey, Jonathan and Carmela. Truth be told, this one was all about the listener submitted questions. You guys are merciless!

We had a great time recording this episode. It's laugh after laugh after laugh with this one.
To start off, we're introducing Trish, a new host, to the mix. Trish did a fabulous job this week. We also had two great guests participating this week, Shara Hinkle and Jeremy Gabbard! The game was a 3 on 2. Carmela teamed up with Shara and Jeremy against the team of Jonathan and Ben. This one goes right down to the wire.

Well, we've finally done it. After multiple requests from multiple quarters we've recorded a episode of Trivial Warfare After Dark. TWAD involves more than a little drinking and more than the usual amount of swearing. We are joined by the General David Livasy as a sober partner while Jonathan, Ben and Carmela compete in a less than sober manner. The Rock God Of Podcasting Charles McFall joins us as the host.
Word to the wise - while this show will follow the normal pattern it is definitely not a normal show. If you are sensitive to pretty much anything I would recommend avoiding this episode. I'm providing plenty of warnings so I'm not going to have very open ears to anyone's complaints about being offended.
One last note - this one is not for the kiddies. Please don't listen with them.
This is a real talk episode dedicated to Chris. After the review that called him out last week I wasn't happy with my own response and wanted to take a few minutes to say more.
There's no trivia in this weeks episode. Thanks.
We stay on a roll this week with two former Jeopardy contestants competing in a triple threat match. Sean Cauley is joining us from Kentucky while Doug Behrend comes to us from the great state of Arkansas. They are going to go head to head with Carmela with Jonathan hosting.
