Thanks for joining us for another episode of Trivial Warfare. Chris is back in his rightful chair and anxious to put me in my place after I won the two handicap matches we held while he was away.
Carmela is in the host's chair again and challenged us with some really tough questions to start the game. Don't Panic though, it will be ok in the end!
I hope you enjoy the show!
Thanks for checking out Episode 19 of Trivial Warfare! Chris won't be with us this week but we have some awesome replacements. This is the second episode featuring the team of Chip, Carmela and Kel. These guys did a great job picking up the slack and I think the fun we had recording the show comes through in the results. We think you'll enjoy this crazy episode featuring Deep Throat, the Stink Palm and Jane's Addiction.
Be sure to check out the show notes at www.trivialwarfare.com to go a little bit deeper and see the handpicked pictures and videos that are related to this week's show.
Thanks for Listening!
This is one of the two episodes that we had to record without Chris because he was off gallivanting around the country. To try and replace him we brought in three friends - Carmela, Chip and Kellum. I decided to set it up as a handicap match becasue that feels just about right in terms of trying to replace someone like Chris. Oddly enough, this was actually the second episode we recorded. You'll hear the first next week as episode 19.
In this episode we learn about the Mothman, get a lesson on birthstones and hear about Marc's struggle living the Brony life. Sith back and enjoy, then head over to iTunes and share a quick blurb about how much you love us :-)
Thanks for listening!
This week we introduce our friend Carmela on the show. She's stepping in to do some guest hosting for us and at the same time to "bring a little class to the joint," as Chris would say. Speaking of Chris, be sure to listen for his epic meltdown near the end of the show. It's a thing of beauty.

This week's show notes will be a little late but they should be up by mid-week. Don't fret, I'm working on them. I just didn't get a chance to get them done early this week with my Canadian excursion.
Thanks for listening!
Thanks for checking out Episode 16! We've been doing the show for about 4 months now and like a fine wine we're getting better with age. After listening to today's show be sure to chime in with your opinion about the Great Animal House Debate of 2015. You can also try to figure out Chris' obsession with my rear end and relive a painful scene from the move that prompted this week's title.

Welcome to Trivial Warfare Episode 15! I have to be honest, trying to summarize this episode is like trying to sweep the beach, it's all over the place. Happily for us, I think you'll agree that this is a good thing. Let's start here - this is easily one of our funnier shows. There's a moment early in the game that almost made me choke when I was editing the show because I had forgotten about it.
The constant with our shows is high quality trivia. We hit up the normal categories like History and Movies but also take some detours into unique categories like N-Words. If you want to get the full show experience make sure to go to www.trivialwarfare.com and sign up for the Trivial Warfare Army as well as checking out the show notes that are loaded with pics and clips from the topics that we explore.
Have a great week!
It’s the Episode 14 release party! You’re all invited. The party will be held in a 3x3 foot space that is centered on the point directly beneath you and extends roughly 7 feet upwards. The party starts as soon as you start the show and ends when it’s over. Don’t say we never gave you anything!
Thanks for sticking with us while we took a week to get our bandwidth issues straightened out. The increase in downloads convinced me to spend some extra money to upgrade our hosting service.
This week’s episode is chock full of awesome trivia and goofy shenanigans. We tackle questions about the OJ Simpson Trial, California and alcohol. Watch out for the trick question! Don’t forget our iTunes review policy. You drop a nice review on us and we’ll be happy to give you a shout out!
Enjoy! – JO

Hey guys, thanks for checking out Episode 13: Down the Crapper. Marc is back with us this week and Chris and I both start slow and then come back with a vengeance.
Today’s episode features questions about foreign leaders, 70’s Mascot Fashion and the Ballcock. The episode runs a little longer than usual because I felt like we had a good flow going and I didn’t want to cut out the conversations. Let me know what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thanks for checking out our show! If you love trivia you’ll love the show. If you love laughing you’ll love the show. If you love people making fools of themselves you’ll love the show. If you’re breathing you’ll love the show. I think that just about covers it.
We jump right into it in Episode 12 with a question about Family Ties that is one of the funniest things we’ve ever done. At least, it’s funny to me. During the editing process I kept going back to listen to it because it was guaranteed to bring a smile to my face.
Hope you guys love it as much as we do. Reach out to us at email@example.com and let us know what you think.
Thanks for joining us for Episode 11. We’re back to our normal format for the next two shows but that doesn’t mean you’re getting any less of what we promise. This episode is jam packed with great trivia, big laughs and bad singing!
I had a hard time choosing this week’s title. I always focus on the show to determine a catchy line and this week I had more than a couple to choose from. It came down to a choice between “Passion, Sex, and Revenge” and “The Search for Spaceballs 2”. Listen to the show to find out why.
This week we hit normal categories like Shakespeare and History but also hit some uncommon categories like Star Wars and Comic Strips. We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed making it.
Before we get started I want to let you know how fun recording the last few episodes has been. I think you can really hear it in this one. The jokes about trumpet butt and fire down below really had us laughing. Marc is back for his second week asking questions and keeping us on our toes.
We start the episode with some warm up questions that really tickled our funny bones and then moved on the main event. This week’s midpoint question focuses on the Stanley Cup while the final tests your knowledge of well-known numbers. In the middle you’ll enjoy questions about music, alcohol, science (SCIENCE!), and others.
We hope you enjoy listening to the show as much as we enjoy making it!
We changed things up a little bit in episode 9. Our friend Marc was gracious enough to join us to act as the host of the show and he brought his own question. Marc is our favorite local trivia host and did a great job. We look forward to his participation whenever he’s available.
What was also great about Marc pulling the questions is that it allowed Chris and I too operate on a level playing field, each getting the same question as the other. I noticed that this brought out the competitiveness in both of us. I think it’s a great change and I hope you will as well.
We start the show today with the 1992 Dream Team and end it with lead singers. On the way we tackled questions about OJ Simpson, Movie Storylines and even had to figure out an anagram. Play along with the show yourself and tell us how you did!
Trivial Warfare Episode #8 is now available for your aural pleasure. Put simply, if awesome made a sound this is what it would sound like. In this episode we turn everything to 11!
This was easily the most fun we had making an episode. Every round was chock-full of a great trivia and big laughs. You should tune in if for no other reason than to hear where this week’s episode title came from.
In this episode we talk about the battle of the sexes, Superman’s parents, and what would happen if we saw a rat. Also, don’t forget to listen all the way through to the outtakes at the back or you might miss our funniest outtake yet.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages, welcome to Episode 7 of the Trivial Warfare Podcast. We’re excited for you to dig in to this week’s episode. Chris and I agree that this is the best show we’ve done so far.
Great Trivia? Check!
Lots of Laughs? Check!
Bad Singing? Check!
Musical Interlude? Check! (Seriously, CHECK!)
Listen to Chris predict the right answer to a question and still get it wrong! Listen to Jonathan use logic to reach his own correct answer and just to do a 180 and blow it.
As if that’s not enough, be sure the listen all the way to the end to catch some outtakes from the show. There was a plethora to choose from this week.
Rejoice! Chris and Jonathan are back with more bad jokes and more awful singing! Most importantly, Episode 5 is chock full of awesome trivia. This week we touch on topics like Frozen, the Thrilla in Manilla, and Soviet spacecraft.
On this episode Chris struggles with the rivers of the underworlds but shows off his knowledge of American lit and politics. On the other hand Jonathan completely misses obvious clues in questions to make life harder for himself but makes up for it with his knowledge of the NFL.
Category of the week: God liked it so much he put a ring on it.
Welcome back to Trivial Warfare Episode #4.
We have a great show for you this week. In episode 4 Chris stumps Jonathan with a Jamaica Mistaica and Chris faces a spelling quiz focused on the governator.
On the positive side, Jonathan shows off his knowledge of elements and Chris refuses to lose when it comes to modern world politics questions.
This week on Trivial Warfare you’ll get a kick out of my lack of musical knowledge about the Beach Boys…or is that the Beatles? Jonathan talks turkey about the NFL and poor animated animals getting electrocuted.
Chris puts the kibosh on a river adventure, admits that he thinks Tommy Lee Jones looks good in a dress, and calls out airlines for their lack of comfortable seats.
Oh, of course there is plenty of trivia and bad singing. Enjoy the show!
Episode 2 of Trivial Warfare featured some great questions. We started with a question about Donald Duck’s family and ended with a question about Presidential families.
In the middle we learned about the contribution that German beer drinkers made to the English language, about a woman who is the epitome of bling bling, and what the Lone Ranger has to do with Classical music.
And of course, there will be more terrible singing for your...umm, entertainment (kind of)?
Anyway, check out episode 2 now on any major podcasting service and don't be shy about writing up a quick review! Thanks.
Episode 1 was a ton of fun to make. Of course, it wasn't our first try. It was actually our third try to start this thing. I still have the old files. Maybe some day I'll brush them off and share them.
Anyway, I think that we were both on top of our game here, not necessarily in terms of knowing all of the answers, but definitely in terms of having fun. We were both in a good mood and it showed.
I think my favorite moment was when I realized that I received a question about James Cook directly after answering a question about James Kirk. That was a complete accident which is why it was brilliant.
