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!
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!
It's an ATW9K Movie Night! No, it's actually our long-awaited LISTENER QUESTIONS show, with trivia generated by YOU for US! Our contestants handle it all, from the small screen to large screen, from history to pop culture to general know-it-or-maybe-not. FYI, we almost lost this episode but rescued it from a backup track, which explains why Jason's mic is weird. Sorry. And sorry for the show.
Here's the final swash in the buckle we call MUSKETEER MONTH -- the Disney version of The Three Musketeers, starring Jack Bauer, Topper Harley, Robin, Dr. Daniel Charles, Hexxus, Lana, and Guy of Gisborne. Cue the music, Bryan Adams.
Pouring a fifth out to all my homies in Westchester, RIP to Tupac, Biggy, the Wolverizzine, Professor X Gon Give It to Ya, fo rizzle. We review LOGAN, because we hurt ourselves today to see if we still feel. Special guest Scott Johnson.
What if we shoved all the actual Musketeers into the background and focused instead on the French martial art of rapier-fu? The result would be the 2001 film The Musketeer, which has sword fighting on top of wine casks, sword fighting on top of a racing coach, and sword fighting on top of ladders (in a room with a suspicious number of ladders). It's MUSKETEER MONTH PART 2!
