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
When I was in Fort Worth for Podcast Movement 2015 I created something that I called the Trivial Warfare Challenge. The challenge is a simple 5 question test of your trivia knowledge. It was very successful with over 25 different podcasters taking the challenge. Some of them were nervous, some were hesitatant but everyone did a great job.
We also included a little bit about each person's show. I encourage you to pick the people that you think sound cool and check out their shows. There are some amazing picks to choose from here!
Here's the list of Podcasters who participated:
Hey Warheads! Thanks for checking out episode 30. You're in for a fun ride with this one. I'm joined by Nick Seuberling, Ramona Rice, Jay Soderberg and Corey Fineran for an All-Sports Showdown. These are 4 of the best sports podcasters in the business throwing down in a little 2 on 2 action this week on Trivial Warfare.
Don't worry if you don't know a lot about sports, I think you'll find yourself laughing and relating to the teams very quickly as you listen to the show. Let me know what you think by shooting me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks! - JO
We're going old school on episode 29 of Trivial Warfare! That's right, it's a head to head match, mano y mano between Chris and Jonathan. No host, no gimmicks, just gold old fashioned trivia and let the best man win!
Be sure to check out our website over at www.trivialwarfare.com to sign up to be a Warhead and to check out the full show notes. Enjoy!
We're back with another huge crossover episode. This time we're letting our inner nerds out to play and doing an episode focused exclusively on comic books, writers, artists and movies. In order to do it right we've partnered with our friends Mark and Lev from the DC Universe Podcast. You can check them out at www.twoshotstothehead.com.
One of the funnest parts of reading comics is discussing them with your friends. So we invited a few others over and ended up with a 3 team brawl featuring our friends John and Daniel along with my brother Bob to round things out.
I hope you enjoy. Let us know what you think at email@example.com. Remember, if you love comics like we do this is the episode to share with your friends!
Let's start with this - Episode 27 is awesome. We have our friend Daniel hosting for the first time and I think you'll appreciate his sense of humor and dry wit, I know I did.
Unfortunately this is not the All-Comics episode that we promised last week. We had a miscommunication and so that's going to have to be delayed for a week. In the meantime this is a classic head to head between me and Chris. The only thing better than the trivia is the laughs.
This episode is not our normal game show. This is a special episode focusing on the event Black Tie for Eli that we are sponsoring here at Trivial Warfare. Eli was 4 year old little boy who was fighting valiantly against the illnesses that were threatening his life.
Eli passed away last week, roughly a week after I recorded this interview with his father. My original intention was to cut this interview into poignant moments that could be used to build drama and include them in our upcoming shows to motivate people to help the family out.
When Eli passed away it broke my heart. I was no longer comfortable going about it in that manner. Still, I think this is a powerful interview and I hope that people will listen to it and decide to try and help the family out in their time of grief.

Thanks for checking out episode 26 - Making It Rain! This weeks episode pits Jonathan against Chris with Ben hosting. As Chris so disgustingly put it, we're going to drip knowledge all over you.
We get started this week with a couple of listener questions and then feature Wierd Al Yankovic in our Warm It Up Chris segment. The questions this week come from the Trivial Pursuit Ultimate Question and Answer book.
So sit back, put your thinking cap on and enjoy the game.
Thanks for checking out episode 25! Ben is hosting once again and keeping us on our toes. We had a ton of fun recording today's episode and I think it comes through wonderfully. You can check out the show notes at www.trivialwarfare.com to go even deeper into our silliness.
In today's episode Chris starts us off by throwing Rotten Tomatoes at us. Then we explore the land of steady habits and the sound of music before visiting Belgium and and watching the Cosby Show.
In the middle of todays episode you'll hear about our sponsorship of Black Tie for Eli, an event coming up that I feel passionate about. You can check out their website at Love4Eli.com to find out more.
Enjoy the show!
Thanks for joining us for another episode of Trivial Warfare! Please don't worry that we might quit, it turns out that we're actually too legit and as a result we can't.
Ben is back with us for another show bringing his own distinct Barry White flair to the show. This week Chris and I were challenged by what felt like a particularly tough set of questions. We got schooled about instant replay, learned about Stanley Burrell and explored the acronyms TPP and EGOT.
We hope you enjoy the show as much as we enjoy making it. Don't forget to visit the show notes over at www.trivialwarfare.com!
Thanks for joining us for another episode of Trivial Warfare! This week we welcome our friend Ben to the show. He steps in to host and does a great job while managing to sound like Barry White. This week we learn Ponce de Leon's first name, get a blast from the past with a question about WKRP and get a double dose of Shakespeare.
Be sure to step by www.trivialwarfare.com for this week's show notes. You'll find classic clips from Ally McBeal and Friday along with fun scenes from the Simpsons and Major league. While you're there you can get our new Android App and sign up to be a Warhead!
Thanks as always,
Welcome back to Trivial Warfare! We're going old school with Episode 22 and getting back to basics with a simple head to head matchup. Chris and I had a great time recording this episode and you'll find some fun surprises from Warner Bros and Monty Python in this week's show.

Welcome back to Trivial Warfare! Thanks for joining us for our first all-sports episode. Today features special guest host Ramona Rice of Sports Gal Pal Fame. This is actually our first themed episode of any sort. We hope you love it. For those of you who may not be into sports, never fear, you'll probably still feel superior to Jonathan as he misses question after question.
As with any sports trivia game you can expect the usual questions about Golf, Tennis, Baseball, Football, Olympics, etc. But only on Trivial Warfare do you get a sprinkling of history and movies with your sports questions. We didn't manage to work any science into this episode. That will be something we have to shoot for next time.
Enjoy the show and then head over to the Sports Gal Pal show and check it out too!
