Inconceivable! is a show that tests our panelists’ knowledge of the nerdy, the useless, and the obscure. Each episode, two teams face off to answer diabolical questions about TV shows, comics, movies, books, games, and more. Host Dan Moren and scorekeeper/announcer Lex Friedman oversee the proceedings, doling out hard-earned points where appropriate.

Can I Have A Ding Ding?

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

The querulous questioning quiz returns, as we make our panelists decipher book titles in a dead language; decide between wizards, swords, and aliens; and battle heroic smashed-up movies. It’s David J. Loehr, Julia Skott, and Monty Ashley versus Shelly Brisbin, Glenn Fleishman, and Kelly Guimont, and nothing riding on it but the whole game!
