How much would you weigh on the moon? Which Indiana Jones movie made the most money? How do you pronounce AT-AT? What does the license plate on Doc Brown’s DeLorean say?
If you can answer these questions, we want to enlist YOU in the Atomic Trivia War 9000, the podcast quiz show with geek cred. The war isn’t waged with bullets and tanks, but with facts and figures, pop culture references, and a big dose of nerdiness.
Join Jason, Omar, Rochelle, and Kevin as they do battle for points and honor. This isn’t a mild seismic activity quiz challenge. This is the Atomic Trivia War 9000!
Jeff Ferry (the Jay and Silent Bob Minute podcast) joins us to talk geography, movie trivia, and the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. Oh, and there's another lyrics quiz to torture Ro and Omar. MUHAHAHA!
Hey there, Spidey! So it's time for the homecoming dance but you've got a flying villain with alien technology to defeat? Yeah, being a teenager sucks. It's Millennials: The Movie -- we talk about the Marvel-Sony collaboration Spider-Man Homecoming at length, with spoilers, picking apart the many things that work and the few big things that don't.
So much to cover! Kevin celebrates Canada's 150th birthday with trivia. We nerdgasm with questions from some favorite geek properties. And Dave Lester sends some video game trivia. Send your own quiz to email@example.com!
They called him the Bright Knight. Adam West gave rise to geek fandom. We review 1966's Batman: The Movie (we're split on whether it holds up) as a way to say goodbye to a superhero icon. Special guest Rick Tetrault!
After starting with some cartoon questions, we let the trivianauts pick their own poison from Star Trek to the space race to rap lyrics. Send your trivia to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We review the 2017 Wonder Woman movie, which boasts the highest-grossing debut by a female director! It's DC's attempt to play ball with the big kids over at Marvel after Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad fell flat. The movie has its flaws -- can the stunning Gal Gadot rise above them?
That's right, we start off with some Wonder Woman trivia in honor of the new DC movie, followed by the STAR WARS 40TH ANNIVERSARY AMAZING FUN-O-MATIC QUIZ-OFF OF DOOM! Then Jason and Ro compare notes about Riverdale (season one is on Netflix) while Omar and Kevin try desperately to ignore them. Send your trivia to email@example.com!
Scott Rubin of Geeknights fills in for Kevin, who is hanging out with his REAL friends in meatspace. So we tackle a trivia topic that Kevin normally vetoes: anime! It doesn't go well. I'm guessing some of our listeners know ALL the answers, though. Also, Legend of Zelda/NES trivia for our guest. Send your trivia to Jason at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Sitting alone in the dark with a glass of whiskey, Jason is wondering what sad set of social and economic pressures have so warped his contestants' tastes in music. Because they have none. This is a well-established, scientifically proven fact. I'll bet you know these song titles.
Or is it Baby Groot: The Movie? Look, it was TONS of fun. But this movie was also hard to watch because some of its family-related themes hit a little too close to home. We dig into the trash-panda-ness of LaserFace and mourn the loss of Yondu. Who's with us?
