Episode 250 - Thanksgiving Jeopardy!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING 2022! We are so thankful to our patrons and our listeners. Wishing you and yours Happy Holidays!

Using the fabulous book, The Ultimate book of Pub Trivia by the Smartest Guy in the Bar : over 300 rounds and more than 3,000 questions by Austin Rogers, Sal has selected some trivia questions from the extensive volume.
Who will prevail in this year's matchup? Listen to find out.
