This isn't the first time that Jonathan is taking on more than one contestant at a time. But 3 players at once? It's possible that he's lost his mind. In fact, it's certain that he's lost his mind.

The listener's tournament is over and we're back to what we do best - answering questions and acting silly. TW60 was an absolute blast to record and it comes through in the show. It's the first time Chris, Carmela and Jonathan are back in the same room to record a show since the beginning of the year! The energy is palpable, the competition is there, the bad jokes are there. This episode has it all. Enjoy!

What do you call it when you get something that you weren't expecting? BONUS! (Or gravy... it really depends on how cool you are, but I digress). A few weeks ago after recording a show Carmela, Chris and Jonathan stuck around and opened a Marvel Trivia Box that Jonathan found at the grocery store for a few bucks. This is a lot less structured than our normal episodes. We were blurting out the answers as fast as we thought of them. It was a lot of fun. Hope you enjoy! Quick note - there is some naughty language in this one, so I'd advise against listening to it with the kids.

We've got an awesome show this week but a quick heads up, it's a little more PG13 than usual. You've been warned ;-) We've got two awesome guests on today's show going head to head in a Pop Culture showdown! In one corner we have Anna Lind Thomas, the founder of www.hahasforhoohas.com and host of the Hahas for HooHas podcast. In the other corner we have Kelly Manno. She's the host of the Kelly Manno Show podcast and all around crazy lady. When these two get together it's destined to be a great time!

It's the Final Four of our Listener's Trivia Tournament. These competitors have each won two games to get this far and the prize is in reach. We start with Scott Barber vs. Amy Ningen. Scott was tested early against Nick Seuberling and then squeaked out a win against Jeffrey Seguritan in one of the best matches in the entire tournament to get here. Amy won her first match against Chris Daly in a runaway and then subjected Jeff Revilla to the same treatment in her quarterfinal match. In the second matchup we have Russ Friedewald facing off against Kris Eve. Russ started the competition with a stiff matchup but managed to win running away and then did it again against Bob Oakes in the quarterfinals to earn his spot in the Final Four. Meanwhile Kris survived his match with John Spahr in Round 1 before shocking many of us by dispatching my normal co-host Chris Hollister with relative ease in the Quarterfinals. Who stands and delivers and who falls to the wayside? You'll have to listen to find out.
Mar 21, 2016
In this last quarterfinal episode we've got Scott Barber going head to head against Jeffrey Seguritan in the first matchup and then follow up with Bob Oakes challenging Russ Friedewald in the second. The winners of this week's matchups will head to the Semifinals to face Kris Eve and Amy Ningen. This week we shared a recommendation for the Curious Minds Podcast. This a great show that digs deep into interesting topics like the Malware that attacked the Iranian Nuclear program and the creation of LSD. You can check them at at www.CMPOD.net.
