Is 2020 over yet? I’m done, how about you? This week, we’re celebrating the end of one disastrous year by talking about disaster movies. Disaster movie trivia in thirty questions to help assuage the horror of this year.
When you’re done with Disaster Movie trivia, please take moment to fill out our super-short, two question feedback form at the bottom of this page. It’s a huge help in keeping the difficulty ‘just right’ and the topics fun.
It’s our last episode of the year. So good riddance to 2020 and here’s to a better 2021! I’ve often told my kids that 2020 was the “year on pause” but I know that I’ve been lucky. A lot luckier than a lot of people. If you, or someone you know, needs a free audiobook, let me know. I’ve got a host of books that I’ve narrated that I can give away. It’s not much, but it’s a few hours of entertainment that might make the difference for someone during these trying times.
To get a free book, just zip over to my personal website, TheVoicesInMyHead.com and make the request.
May your 2021 be full of love, happiness, and prosperity. See you on the other side my friends!

Is 2020 over yet? I’m done, how about you?
Hey gang, this is your host, Brian Rollins and this is the Dorky Geeky Nerdy trivia podcast. It’s our last episode of 2020 and I won’t be sad to see it go. In honor of what a disaster this year has been, we thought it’d be fun to revisit those film catastrophes, Disaster Movies. It’ll be nice to remember a time when widespread death and destruction was limited to the big screen.
As always, it’s three rounds of ten questions each. I’ll give you the question, then you have five seconds to answer. Simple format, not-so-simple questions.
That covers the intro, so let’s get going.
The Dorky Round
4. What 70's movie featured Helen Reddy as a singing nun and Linda Blair as a child in need of an urgent operation?
The Geeky Round
1. Filming for what 1996 movie was delayed when the film crew stopped to help recovery efforts after the Oklahoma City bombing?
The Nerdy Round
3. Roger Ebert said of what 2003 movie, “I have such an unreasonable affection for this movie, indeed, that it is only by slapping myself alongside the head and drinking black coffee that I can restrain myself from recommending it.”
6. Samuel L Jackson signed on for what 1999 movie after enjoying working with Renny Harlin in The Long Kiss Goodnight?
8. What 1951 movie told the story of scientists racing to build a rocket to send refugees to the planet Zyra?
And we’re done. This is our last episode of 2020. Thanks for rolling with us this year. I know we picked up a lot of new listeners this year with folks being stuck at home. We had a little over 10,000 listens in 2019 and more than 20,000 this year. I hope this show has brought a little fun into your homes this year, goodness knows we all need it.
But, we have a vaccine roll-out to be hopeful for. And, if you’re like me, you’ve taken stock of what’s really important to you this year. As I keep telling my kids, this was the “year on pause” for us. But I know I’ve been lucky. For many of you, this year hasn’t stopped. For medical staff, you’re working endless hours and haven’t seen your families. We thank you. For those in the service industry making sure we can still buy groceries, get gas, and keep society moving. We thank you. For the teachers out there that have been endless curveballs and still managing to educate out kids. We thank you. To everyone out there that’s lost a job or lost a loved one from the pandemic. We see you. We support you. We are here for you.
So, for the end of the year, if you know someone (including yourself) that could use a free audiobook, come visit me on my personal site, TheVoicesInMyHead.com. You can request a free copy of any of the audiobooks I’ve narrated over the years. There are mysteries, thrillers, YA romance, and more. It’s not much, but if you know someone that could use a little escape from reality, send them my way.
We’ll be back again next week and next year for another episode. Here’s your clue:
This has been episode 101 of the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Trivia Podcast. The music has been by Jason Shaw. You can find him and his music at Audionautix.com. I’m your host, Brian Rollins. Thanks for listening and may your 2021 be a year full of love, happiness, and prosperity.
