Two years ago, we launched this weird little show and you’re all still listening! We’re not the top Trivia Podcast, but we’re still growing. Thanks to everyone that’s tuned in and a special thanks to everyone that’s helped share the show.
If you’re new here, welcome to the show. This is not our usual format. This week, for our two year anniversary, we’re selecting questions from past topics covered in the last year. This episode is also special as it has forty questions instead of our usual thirty. An extra 10 questions as my present to you for your support this last year in making us a great Trivia Podcast.
Starting with this episode, we have new music. This season’s theme music is Skinny Leonard by Jason Shaw. You can find Jason’s music at Audionautix.com. Grab some royalty free music for your podcast, video, or whatever.
We are also adding Episode Transcripts to each show. Newer shows are getting them immediately upon release and I’m slowly adding them to older shows. These will eventually replace the Quizzes. Hopefully you’ll like having them all in one place.
Hopefully, by the time we have our three-year anniversary, Covid-19 will be a distant, distant memory. Good luck and enjoy this week’s show.
Get a free audiobook! That’s right. This week, just send in your email address and what title you want, and poof, you get a free audiobook. From thrillers, to mystery, to YA, we’ve got a book for you.

Blow out the candles and make a wish, because the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Trivia Podcast is turning two years old. Hey gang, I’m your host, Brian Rollins and I can’t believe it’s been two years. To everyone that’s been with us for the last year, thanks for your support. This time last year we were just starting to get worried about Covid-19 here in the US. Hopefully when we do this again next year, it’ll all be a bad memory.
I know this last year has been long, but doing this show has helped me. It’s kept me busy and it’s let me interact with new people. I hope it’s helped break up the tedium in your lives.
So, it’s a new season of the show. We’re not changing much, just the theme music. Like last year’s theme, it’s by Jason Shaw at Audionautix. The music is called Skinny Leonard. We’ll be using it all season. If you need royalty free music for your projects, head over to Audionautix.com and let Jason know who sent you.
Everything else stays the same. Still three rounds of ten questions each. A Dorky Round, a Geeky Round, and a Nerdy Round. Though this week, we’re adding in a fourth round. That’s right, this week’s episode has the Freaky round, a bonus ten questions that are extra-hard.
