We've got a full crew on this week's show. Marc hosts a triple threat match between Jonathan, Chris and Carmela. That's right, Carmela is standing on her own two feet in a triple threat match.

We start off with some fun trying to figure out what 80's movies made the most money. Then the competition begins in earnest. Can Chris climb the mountain and take home the trophy? Why is Jonathan so frustrated with modern science? (SCIENCE!) Finally? Who da real MVP? Tune in and find out! Interested in picking up our free guide to improving your trivia score?

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.

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.

We're sharing this special All-Movie Trivia show right on time for the Academy Awards! We're joined by two professional movie critics and two movie loving podcasters and we're pitting them against each other to see who really knows more about movies. On the movie critic team we have Emmy Award winning movie critic Neil Rosen (Sitting Around Talking Movies) and internationally syndicated movie critic Joanna Langfield (The Movie Minute). The podcaster team features Jonathan Maas and Kyle Appleyard, two up and coming talents from Shark Dropper Studios. Their Dopple Avenue Hurt podcast is a quirky and enjoyable mix of film noir and intelligent humor. It comes highly recommended! Enjoy the show. It's one of our best yet!

This week features the 3rd set of matches in our Listener Tournament! Only 1 more first round episode after this before we move into the Quarterfinals! The first matchup this week is a battle between California and the UK. It's Amy Ningen (rhymes with singin) vs Chris Daly! This second matchup this week is one of our most anticipated. It's Jeffrey Seguritan vs. Tyler Lendt. These are two of our most active users on the Trivial Warfare Army Facebook group and everybody is wondering who will come out on top. Only two listeners will move on to the Quarterfinals!

This is the second round of matchups from the first round of our listeners tournament. Bob and Chris won their matchups last week to advance. Who will join them this week? The first matchup features the host of the Cincinnati Bengals podcast "Inside the Jungle", Nick Seuberling going toe to toe with Scott Barber. Scott is a member of a championship winning Trivia team and is a fan of both TW and ItJ.

This week we kick off the Trivial Warfare Listener's Tournament! This week's show features two first round matchups. The first matchup is our very own Chris Hollister vs Always Listening's Joel Sharpton. Chris is trying to defend the home turf while Joel is trying to avoid being the only person to lose 4 guest appearances. In the second game we have my brother Bob vs. the Sports Gal Pal Ramona Rice. Ramona is determined to have a better showing after her teams collapse in the All Sports Crossover last summer while Bob needs to win to prevent his younger brother (i.e. me) from mocking him mercilessly until the end of his days. This episode is filled with a lot of fun and a ton of laughs. Let me know what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org. JO

Josh and Joel from Always Listening stopped by the Trivial Warfare studios this week with one thing on their mind - settling once and for all who knew more useless crap. It's the hopeless optimist vs. a ruthless sandbagger and one of them is gonna get murdelated! This episode could not be more fun. Need More? Today we discover that Delaware is still a state and discuss whether or not Rhode Island is getting too big for its britches. Enjoy!

Really excited about this week's show. We've done theme shows before. This week we're riding the pop culture train again and doing an ALL MOVIES SHOW! This is the first episode we recorded after watching the Force Awakens so the first 10 minutes or so is dedicated to our review of the movie. Frankly, we go a little against the mainstream. After that we bring the TRIVIA! Chris goes head to head against Daniel. Chris knows more pop culture than anyone I know while Daniel specializes in movies, being a moviephile and someone who has spent countless hours working in the old blockbuster chains. We also announce the first ever Trivial Warfare Listener Tournament. Be sure to check out the show over at www.trivialwarfare.com or our facebook group over at https://www.facebook.com/groups/TrivialWarfareArmy/ Who has what it takes to win the day? There's only one way to find out.

This week is an episode focused exclusively on American History. Why? Because 'Murica! Uncle Chip, our resident history expert is hosting and Carmela joins Chris and Jonathan in the contestant chairs as a solo player for the first time. Out of the three of us there was one person who significantly underperformed their expectations. Want to know who? You'll have to listen!

Jonathan has vowed revenge after last week's defeat at the hands of Carmela and Chris. This week Jonathan is joined by Marc (who is participating as a contestant for the first time) to take on Chris and his Uncle Chip. Carmela asks the questions in this grudge match. NOTE: If you are a parent listening with young kids you may want to skip the intro where we talk about Santa Claus.
Dec 28, 2015
We've got a huge crew together for this show. Mark is back in the host chair while Chris and Jonathan see if they have what it takes to lead their teams to victory. Chris is partnered with the lovely and talented Carmela while Jonathan pairs up with Uncle Chip for an epic throwdown. Which teams has what it takes to bring home the win? Only one way to find out!

Some of the funniest and wierdest moments when we've recorded our episodes have had to be edited out of the show for one reason or another. Sometimes they needed to be cut for time, sometimes it was becuase it was a little too vulgar for the normal show and sometimes it was because the segment was just too wierd. This is a compilation of those outtakes curated for you in short bursts. Enjoy!
