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!
