Listener request! And I’ve been wanting to tackle World War II trivia for some time. I know it’s a little jarring to jump from Peanuts to World War II, but we’ve got a lot of ground to cover here at DGN. So let’s dive in.
As always, it’s three rounds of ten questions each. If you need rules or scorecards, you can find them here.
When you’re done, check out the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Shop. It helps to pay the bills here (we’re pretty low-maintenance, but every little bit helps).

From the warmth of Thanksgiving, to the foxholes of the 1940s. We cover a lot of ground on this show.
Hey gang, I’m your host, Brian Rollins and this is episode 149 of the Dorky Geeky Nerdy trivia podcast. This week, by popular demand, we’re diving into World War Two. Longtime fans will remember our World War One episode back in our first season. It’s been a lot of episodes since then, so it’s time to hit the granddaddy of all wars.
As always, it’s three rounds of ten questions each. I ask the question, you get a timer, then we see if you got it right.
I think that covers the preliminaries, so let’s get started with…
The Dorky Round
5. Actor George Takei, along with other Americans of Asian descent, were rounded up and sent where during World War Two?
9. What American animator created propaganda films for the US military including, Education for Death, Commando Duck, and Donald Gets Drafted?
The Geeky Round
9. Though known for his leading of Nazi Germany, Adolf Hitler is not a native German. He was born in what country?
The Nerdy Round
7. What Prime Minister declared he had achieved, 'Peace for our time' with the Munich Agreement in 1938?
10. When cola syrup was cut off from Axis countries, Coca-Cola created what soft drink to sell in Germany?
And that’s our show this week. I’m sure you history nerds had a blast. For the rest of you, well, let’s just hope you learned something. We’ll be back again next week with another thirty questions. Here’s your clue:
“What fantasy novel was first published on September 21, 1937?”
I hope to see you back here for another show. A little reminder that the shop is open and waiting for you. Checkout DorkyGeekyNerdy.com/shop to find t-shirts and more. Order soon to get your stuff before Christmas, OK?
Thanks for listening and keep your head down out there.
