We take a break from our listener tournament this week to enjoy a great episode featuring Bryan and Nathan Orr. We're also glad to welcome Ben Young back into the hosts chair. All in all this is one of our funniest episodes ever. Be sure to tune back in next week to catch up on the Listener Tournament. We have 3 shows to go before the championship!
This week features that last two first round matchups in our Trivial Warfare Listener's Tournament. The winners will join Amy Ningen, Jeffrey Seguritan, Chris Hollister, Bob Oakes, Kris Eve and Scott Barber in the Quarterfinals! The first matchup features Jeff Revilla, the host of Stuff I Never Knew, facing off against world traveller Jeff Jones. Two Jeffs enter, only one leaves. The last matchup of the first round is one that everybody has been waiting for. It's Carmela Smith, the First Lady of Trivial Warfare, squaring up against the Trivia Workshop guru and recent GeeksWhoDrink champ Russ Friedewald!
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. The second matchup features John Spahr - the head man at the radio station WTTF in Tiffin Ohio going up against long time Warhead Kris Eve.
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 email@example.com. 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!
In this week's episode Jonathan takes on both Chris and Daniel in a handicap match. We'll see if he can maintain his composure with the odds stacked against him. Carmela hosts and really brings the pain with a very challenging set of questions. 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.
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!
We're back after our two week break. We'll be revealing the answer to last week's trivia puzzle and walking through how to find it. In addition, friend of the show Nick Seuberling is on the show as a guest competitor. Nick barely lost to Jonathan in episode TW33: A Midnight Summer's Dream and has been angling for a rematch. Does Nick have what it takes to put the champ on his back? Listen and find out. Chris hosts as these two trivia heavyweights go head to head
It was a sad day in the Oakes household after episode 41. Chris took Jonathan down for the first time since July. Can he win again and start a streak of his own or will Jonathan put a stop to this and start a new streak of his own. Find out in todays' show. Carmela hosts and challenges the guys with questions about things like dwarf planets and the world cup. Also, take a guess at what movie Carmela hasn't seen in way too long!
Jonathan's been on an unprecedented winning streak, winning every show he's played for over two months. Is this the week that Chris can break the streak. Also, find out what question made Jonathan so mad that he had to walk away from the microphone to cool off. Enjoy this and more on this week's episode of Trivial Warfare!
Things are getting bad for Mr. Hollister. Jonathan hasn't lost a game in months. Is this the week Chris puts it all together or is going to be another win for Jonathan? There's only one way to find out. Join us as Mark hosts!
Daniel hosts this weeks Halloween episode and created all of the questions himself. Chris and Jonathan expected some spooky content, maybe a few sweet questions and a little bit of trick or treat. However, the trick was on us as Daniel turned the difficulty all the way up to 11. In this week's show all of the questions will have a connection to Halloween. We have questions about the holiday itself as well as questions about candy, costumes and plenty of scary movies. Turn out the lights, get your popcorn out and settle in for this spine chilling edition of Trivial Warfare.
Daniel is back in the hosts chair and he brings some staggeringly hard questions to start the show, but Jonathan and Chris eventually settle in and get on track. Don't miss the moment that Jonathan puts hit cat on the line in a wager over who is right. Enjoy! JO
Chris, Ben and Jonathan are back together for another show. Play along with the boys as they try to identify "world capitals" in the Warm it up Chris segment. Determine whether or not you think something is wrong with the boys as they continue to miss 3.2.1. questions after breaking the seal last week. Also, find out if Chris can finally beat Jonathan and end his winning streak! Enjoy!
In this week's episode Ben is back in the host's chair pitting Jonathan and Chris head to head against each other. Today's episode is just as awesome as ever but near the end of the show we had our first accusation of possible cheating! I know, can you believe it? Who did the cheating? Was it really cheating or just a joke? Did they get caught?! There's only one way to find out. Join us for this episode of Trivial Warfare where it's not just trivia, It's WAR!
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.
