Jetty Mind Tricks

Welcome back to “Are You The Spy?” Panelists must name clues that point to potential topics like chess, Darth Vader, or waffles. One spy doesn’t know the topic they’re trying to discuss, and must figure it out before the rest of the group figures them out. In this episode, players put their knowledge (or lack thereof) of Incomparable podcasts, Star Wars characters, board games, and breakfast foods to good use.

If you would like to play along as a civilian and know the topic words that the spies are trying to guess, click here to see the answers. If you would like to play along as the spy, just start listening!

Quinn Rose with Brian Hamilton, Lizbeth Myles, Glenn Fleishman, Shelly Brisbin and Kathy Campbell

The Meatball is a Relic

Inconceivable!

Welcome back to “Inconceivable!”, the show that tests two teams’ knowledge of the nerdy, the useless, and the obscure.

It’s some of our most diabolical questions yet, as panelists try to identify cryptic cryptids, figure who uttered those memorable (or not so memorable) last words, and untangle some mashed-up Disney movies. Chip Sudderth, Quinn Rose, and Steve Lutz take on Kelly Guimont, Glenn Fleishman, and Liz Myles for the title.

It Is I, The Deceptor!

Low Definition

It’s time for more Low Definition, the game show that builds your word power! But with poop jokes! We also investigate government agencies, ponder the final words of French philosophers, and ponder some questionable input from the users of Google.

Steve Lutz with Antony Johnston, Kathy Campbell, Allison Truj, Jean MacDonald, Brian Hamilton and Erika Ensign

The Murder Edition

UK Triv

Death, destruction, slaughter, and a bit more death — and that’s just the questions. Once again, Antony Johnston gathers a panel of north Americans to play a British edition of Trivial Pursuit, and it gets dark…

Non-Quadruped Thaumaturgy

Game Night

This is the first episode of a new game show, Are You The Spy? Panelists must name clues that point to potential topics like Bigfoot, Transfiguration, or the Fast and the Furious movie franchise. One spy doesn’t know the topic they’re trying to discuss, and must figure it out before the rest of the group figures them out. In this episode, players put their knowledge (or lack thereof) of cryptids, Hogwarts classes, blockbuster franchises, and Cats (2019) to good use.

Wayne Gretzky

Random Pursuit

From Wild, swingin’ Swaziland to the frozen north of Canada, there’s nothing better than getting a bunch of friends together to play trivia games — even when Trivial Pursuit changes how its own cards work. AGAIN.

Three of the Four Have Been to Space

Inconceivable!

Welcome back to “Inconceivable!”, the show that tests two teams’ knowledge of the nerdy, the useless, and the obscure.

In our latest episode, our teams test their knowledge of suspiciously similar spies, things that don’t fit a pattern, and classic ’80s sci-fi/fantasy/horror movies…with a twist. Kathy Campbell, Annette Wierstra, and Tony Sindelar face off against Antony Johnston, Jean MacDonald, and Erika Ensign for the crown.

That Seems Naughty

Parsely (Action Castle)

A new Parsely adventure? It’s a Christmas miracle! We take a tour of the North Pole and try to save Christmas by entering basic commands into a human parser. What secrets lie in the Candy Cane Forest? Who lives atop Yeti Mountain? What is Mary Claus’s marital status? Tis the season!

Tony Sindelar with Jason Snell, Aleen Simms, Chip Sudderth, Monty Ashley, Annette Wierstra and Brian Hamilton

Canadian Crime Fighting Beaver

Turns Out!

Turns Out returns, as we take a look at toys that caused holiday riots like Tickle Me Elmo, the Cabbage Patch Kids, and Barbara the Beaver. You don’t know Barbara the Beaver? Maybe you’ve heard of Flirting Flossie? What is the liquid filled dice agitator and why is it so popular? Ask again later.

David J. Loehr with Tiffany Arment, Kelly Guimont and Annette Wierstra
