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!
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 email@example.com!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org!
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 email@example.com!
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?
We go back to the 1930s and work our way forward in time, answering superhero trivia along the way. From the Gay Blade to Hit Girl to Blue Raja and Spleen, we've got 'em covered. Then we talk about Omar's trip to The America, Kevin's crush on American Gods, Ro's affair with Breath of the Wild, and Jason's heart-stomped experience with S-Town. It's an extra-long episode for extra-special listeners. Send your trivia to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
There's so much to talk about here, from trivia (of course) to the return of Samurai Jack.
Call it Ghost in the Shell Lite. Weigh whitewashing. Consider the Ship of Theseus. These are all things you can (and should) do in a discussion about the 2017 release of Ghost in the Shell, the live action adaptation of the 1995 anime. Though not without its many faults, we found it not to be the horrible stinker that many believe.
A last-minute Ro-placement means Ari joins Jason, Kevin, and Omar to talk about everything from the worst Nicolas Cage films to rap lyrics to Joss Whedon's new Batgirl venture. We do a rank-and-file game and tackle some very fun trivia!
