Nerds, the lot of them

I have been a pop culture trivia writer and host for close to a decade, and until I started listening to this podcast, I thought I was pretty good.

Dan Moren’s categories and questions are as fun and inventive as his panelists—and I’m not just saying that because we have the same initials.
