    116 - Quizzing Financial Transparency

    116 - Quizzing Financial Transparency

    In this episode, Gryphon and Scott discuss a cluster of financial transparency questions, drawing from their own experiences and (possibly flawed and certainly incomplete) memories of the past and their own understanding of the current state of Quizzingdom. The dynamic duo takes umbrage at some points. Sunlight is the best disinfectant, and those that don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it. The goal here is to shine light on our problems to inspire future leaders to do better. As always, email questions and comments to iq@cbqz.org and follow us on Twitter: @InsideQuizzing.

    114 - Quizzer Types and Associated Motivations

    114 - Quizzer Types and Associated Motivations

    Gryphon and Scott discuss the idea that quizzers can be divided up into various types, often times with high levels of complexity and across multiple type categories. The dynamic duo discuss these categories and how coaches can best coach these different types of quizzers. Categories include: older versus younger sibling quizzers, the "I'm just here for the food" quizzer, quizzers with great material knowledge but are super-cautious, quizzers with poor material knowledge and who throw caution to the wind, and quizzers who are brand new to quizzing.

    113 - College Basketball and Bible Quizzing

    Gryphon and Scott discuss how college basketball officiating might have parallels to officiating Bible Quizzing.
    Since Gryphon is only vaguely aware of college basketball, Scott leads the discussion, citing many examples of officiating problems he witnessed from a long weekend watching various games.

    112 - First Principles of Bible Quizzing

    112 - First Principles of Bible Quizzing

    Gryphon and Scott, in an effort to imagine what Quizzing might be like if we were to recreate it anew, work through some thought experiments to help determine what may be our shared first principles of Bible Quizzing. Quizzing must be fun and engaging. We need to remove inconsistent and error-prone activity because it's unfair, and what is unfair is anti-mission. And Quizzing needs to grow.

    111 - Rule Book Committee Initiation

    111 - Rule Book Committee Initiation

    Gryphon and Scott discuss the initiation of the first ever Rule Book Committee. The dynamic duo discuss the formation of the committee, where it's charter comes from, how it basically works, and other particulars. But the really exciting bits are all about how everyone from across the whole of Quizzingdom can participate in the process as equals in a transparent collaboration of ideas. Gryphon and Scott also discuss some related philosophies around why the rule book is important, and they discuss some specific items on the Rule Book Committee's list of topics to resolve.
