I Learned the Truth at Seventeen

We have a lot of new trivia blood in this episode! The scores are also pretty bloody, and Scorekeeper Steven makes no bones about it. At least there’s always fantasy in the adult box.

His Nose

This is another genre-editions only episode, in which we wonder where the heck the Doctor is, are overwhelmed by Harry Potter, and discover just how terrible the genre questions really are.

Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky with Dan Moren, Shelly Brisbin, Katrina Griffiths, David J. Loehr and Tansy Rayner Roberts

Unexpected Batman

In our first ever genre editions-only episode of Random Pursuit, we discover Kathy and Antony are trivia twins…mostly. Also, when in doubt, answer 18.

Do the Toilets Pay You?

Hope you’re ready to yell answers at your listening device again because Random Pursuit is back — with a new development! Erika finally admitted she needed help and convinced Steven to come on board to keep score (and occasionally read Wikipedia to us). How many mounties does it take to make a podcast episode? Listen and find out!

Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky with Annette Wierstra, Scott McNulty, Jean MacDonald, Glenn Fleishman and Deborah Stanish

British Ghosts

This special episode of Random Pursuit sees Erika pulling players from around the Commonwealth to answer trivia questions that are largely American-based. Will the lone Canadian have an advantage? Will there be Lizzing? Will the Lizzing be confined to Liz? And just what do they have in Canadian shopping malls? All this, plus a whole lot of whispering on this episode.

And yes. Erika knows she accidentally awarded Liz a point she didn’t earn. Blame the ghost.

Erika Ensign with Paul Cornell, James Thomson, Annette Wierstra, Lizbeth Myles and Antony Johnston

Boasting Mountains

It’s time to get random again! Another group of intrepid players gathers to do their best to avoid Chex Trivia questions. Is Fred Astaire the answer to everything? Is Dan a pile of ants? Just how much homework is Erika assigning? Listen to find out!

Who Is Lamargine Gumbody?

In this edition of Random Pursuit, a friendship is on the line. Will it survive a bunch of questions about geography and underwear? Listen and see.

Wayne Gretzky

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.

Erika Ensign with Monty Ashley, Annette Wierstra, Kathy Campbell, Steve Lutz and Sage Young

Flubber Franchise

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 Believe In The Juicy Rooster

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.

I Hate People and Places

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!
