Citius, Altius, Fortius! Let the games begin! This week, we celebrate the 2020 Tokyo Games with some Olympics Trivia.
After being delayed a year from the pandemic the Games are set to open in Japan. So, let’s enjoy a little normality for a change and watch some of the world’s best athletes do their thing. Or at least, that’s the plan as of now.
When you’re done with our Olympics Trivia, could you take a moment and send us a little feedback? We need to know how we’re doing. Too easy? Too hard? Let us know. Just scroll down to the two-question feedback form below.
This week’s episode is brought to you by those fines gents at Sips, Suds, & Smokes.
Sips, Suds, & Smokes is now in its 9th season with plenty more ahead of them. Good ol Boy Mike is the Producer and Host of this weekly show. The idea of the show began out of simple Sat. AM listening to Car Talk. Mike was on the phone with Good ol Boy Jim and he mentioned that Car Talk was retiring. Mike panicked and wonder what would fill this vacuum of nonsense. “You know, we should have a radio show and just talk about all the things we like. Jim- Like anyone is going to listen to us sit around and talk about whiskey, beer, and cigars? Mike- yeah, that’s it. We’ll call it Sips, Suds, & Smokes.” And thus, a less than brilliant idea was born.
We decided the show needed to be more about a broad range of products and geographically diverse. So we have hosts from all over the world that record content and send it in. Not all of it makes the regular broadcast. Of course, we still can’t figure out what the Germans and Russians are saying.
We talk about wine, whiskey, nearly anything distilled, tea, coffee, beer, mead, cigars, smoked meats, and more beer. We taste and rate things along with our signature and unique rating system. And we have plenty of Good Belching Zones™ identified every year to help you enjoy many of these products.
There are lots of running jokes like our efforts to be banned from entire states (Alabama), entire countries (France), and offending an entire culture of people (anything British). We have created and copyrighted the words “Barnhousey” and “Chuggling”.
We have collaboration shows with lots of other radio shows on a regular basis. Imagine an entire hour filled with fake British accents talking about Fullers beer – probably like a bad BBC show.

Let the games begin! Or at least, let’s hope they can begin.
Kon’nichiwa gang. This is episode 127 of the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Trivia Podcast. I’m your host Brian Rollins. As of this recording, the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games are still scheduled to start next month.
If they are, here’s some cool trivia to get you in the mood. If they’re cancelled, you assuage that hurt by revisiting Olympics of the past.
Either way, it’s three rounds of ten questions each. If you want rules or a score card, you can get both (and more) at DorkyGeekyNerdy.com.
I also have a little technical note. I’ve replaced the ever-present, old school ticking clock between the questions and answers. It’s a short guitar piece by Jason Shaw at Audionautix. I felt the old timer was a little stress inducing, even though it’s been with us since our first episode in 2019. The new one’s a little less jarring. Let me know what you think. Keep this new one or bring back the clock?
That’s it for our Opening Ceremonies, so let’s begin.

The Geeky Round
4. Assuming they are still going in 2021, what are the only years where the Olympics have been cancelled?
The Nerdy Round
7. Olympic medalist Christa Luding-Rothenburger holds the distinction of being the only person to do what?
And that’s it. Extinguish the cauldron and start packing your bags for home. Hopefully you got a few medals to take home as souvenirs. We’ll be back again next week for more trivia fun. Here’s a clue:
What decade gave us the phrase, “Becoming is better than being”?
A quotable episode. See you back here, next Wednesday.
Thanks for listening and keep going for the gold.
