A podcast featuring word games, trivia, classic board games, and even a few reimagined classic game shows from years gone by. We rotate through several different games, with different hosts, from episode to episode. What they all have in common is chat, humor, and fun.


Flubber Franchise

Random Pursuit

Once again a group of unsuspecting game players must answer trivia questions randomly selected from random editions of Trivial Pursuit! Plus there may be more Chex trivia—you never know. In this episode, our members of the World of People ponder many questions about the World of Places. Join us in the World of Podcasts, won’t you?

I Named Two Klingons!

Our audience: the final frontier. Federation Feud returns, as two teams comprised of two Star Trek fans and one non-Star Trek fan each battle for control of the galaxy by guessing your stupid answers to our stupid Star Trek questions!

Jason Snell with Antony Johnston, Anže Tomić, David J. Loehr, Kathy Campbell, Liz Myles and Moisés Chiullan


I Believe In The Juicy Rooster

Random Pursuit

From Chex Trivia about music, to Chex Trivia about TV, to Chex trivia about the ’50s and ’60s, this episode of Random Pursuit has it all! Also a bunch of regular Trivial Pursuit sets, including Doctor Who and Star Wars, but it really did seem like Chex showed up a lot.

Erika Ensign with Monty Ashley, Moisés Chiullan, Shannon Sudderth, Jean MacDonald and Kathy Campbell


Robbie Williams is Not Dead

UK Triv

What’s a motorway? What’s an FA Cup? When is a mall not a mall? And why do British Trivial Pursuit question-setters have their mind set on topless women? Antony Johnston once again flings nonsense at a panel of confused North Americans for your education and amusement.

Antony Johnston with Brian Hamilton, Scott McNulty, Moisés Chiullan, Erika Ensign and Annette Wierstra


Spelling Bee

Who doesn’t love a Spelling Bee? Inspired by the annual National Spelling Bee, this bee features five of our regular panelists attempting to spell hard words selected by our chief speller, Jean MacDonald.

Jean MacDonald with Antony Johnston, Dan Moren, Monty Ashley, Steve Lutz and Quinn Rose


If Only We’d Ever Read a Book


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

This time around, our teams test their knowledge of fictional characters’ epitaphs, compound word games, and award-winning books and movies that share a common word. It’s Jean MacDonald, Scott McNulty, and Liz Myles versus James Thomson, Kathy Campbell, and Tony Sindelar.

Dan Moren and Lex Friedman with Jean MacDonald, Scott McNulty, Liz Myles, James Thomson, Kathy Campbell and Tony Sindelar


Federation Feud!

We’ve gathered two teams from the corners of the Alpha and Beta quadrants to compete in this game, where we try to guess the stupid answers Star Trek fans gave to our stupid Star Trek questions. Which team will reign supreme? The answer will surprise you.

Jason Snell with Scott McNulty, Dan Moren, David J. Loehr, Jean MacDonald, Moisés Chiullan and Joe Rosensteel


I Think This One Has a Talking Helicopter


It’s time once again to play TL;DR, the game of hasty summaries and reckless connections where two teams battle against the clock, each other, and a sometimes surprising paucity of pop culture knowledge. Will anyone ever get those elusive bonus points? The answer will shock you!

Antony Johnston with Aleen Simms, Brian Hamilton, Tony Sindelar and Kelly Guimont


I Hate People and Places

Random Pursuit

We didn’t get to play Random Pursuit at the Gallifrey One convention this year, so we got the group behind last year’s wacky installment back together virtually to play again. Will Liz go for the Prosecco? Did Deb get enough cheese and crackers? Is Jason cheating at dice? Your definition of “geography” will be changed forever!

Erika Ensign with Steve Lutz, Steven Schapansky, Deborah Stanish, Liz Myles, Jason Snell and Chip Sudderth


I Solved a Question From the Future


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

We’ve returned to quiz our panelists on a variety of topics, including books of chronological conveyance, a panoply of people with personas, and a slew of slapped-together sci-fi and spy stories of the screen. The “J Team”—James Thomson, Jean MacDonald, and Jason Snell—match wits against the “People with E in Their Last Names Team”—Annette Wierstra, Monty Ashley, Erika Ensign.

Dan Moren and Lex Friedman with James Thomson, Jean MacDonald, Jason Snell, Annette Wierstra, Monty Ashley and Erika Ensign


Shiver Me Pleasure

Low Definition

Once more unto the breach, dear elflock, and raise the chirogymnast! Steve Lutz is back with more stupid real words and the even stupider fake definitions supplied by a bunch of confused panelists. And it’s almost baseball season, so the host is also probably drunk.

Steve Lutz with Kathy Campbell, Brian Hamilton, Kelly Guimont, Tiffany Arment and Annette Wierstra
