Trivia for the ages

The hosts have great chemistry and it is easy to tell the trivia is always created with a deep appreciation for the subject matter. The experts always seem excited to share their knowledge with fans.

Always a delight!

The perfect balance of comedic and educational. I’m invested in every topic, even ones that would never interest me on paper. Hearing someone geek out over a passion, and then get to meet an idol? Never gets old. When I run out of new episodes, I go back and re-listen to old ones! What are you waiting for, give it a listen!!
