We’re heading back to the North East, New England, and one of the original thirteen colonies. It’s time for New Hampshire Trivia for this week’s episode of Dorky Geeky Nerdy.
Same setup as always: three rounds of ten questions each. I ask, you answer, and then we’ll settle up.
When you’re done with New Hampshire Trivia, take a moment to leave us a review, some feedback, or drop a note to me. I love hearing from you all.

Back to the East Coast and one of the original thirteen colonies.
Hey everyone, this is episode 176 of the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Trivia Podcast. This week, we’re up in New England with thirty questions all about New Hampshire trivia.
If you’re new to our little show, welcome! Every week we offer three rounds of ten questions each. This season, we’re driving through the United States with one episode per state. You can visit the show’s website, DorkyGeekyNerdy.com to find past shows along with transcripts to help follow along.
I do have one bit of news to announce, with last week’s Ohio episode, this show has broken the 100,000 download mark. Sure, it’s not massive numbers, but it’s a big milestone and I want to thank everyone who’s listening. Whether you’re just starting out with us or you’ve been here since the get-go, thanks for your support.
I think that covers the basics, so let’s get this show started.
The Dorky Round
2. Born in Exeter, NH, what thriller author became a massive success after the publication of The Da Vinci Code?
4. What 1995 movie was set in NH, directed by Joe Johnston, and starred Robin Williams along with some questionable CGI animals?
8. When it comes to presidential elections, New Hampshire is known for being the first what every four years?
The Geeky Round
4. New Hampshire brothers Richard and Maurice would open the first of what restaurant chain in 1940?
5. Set in New Hampshire, what 1991 movie starred Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfus and was directed by Frank Oz?
8. What geological feature graces New Hampshire's great seal, their license plate, and state quarter?
The Nerdy Round
4. Adam Sandler seems to have a thing for NH. Click, Mr. Deeds, and what animated Hanukah film all take place there?
And we’re done. Like all of New England, I haven’t yet visited New Hampshire, but I hope to one day. Want some bonus facts about the state? Well…
- The highest point is Mount Washington. In 1934, they measured a winds peed up to 231mph. That’s the fastest wind ever recorded that wasn’t associated with a tornado or tropical cyclone.
- New Hampshire has no state income tax.
- It was the ninth state to join the US
- In population, New Hampshire ranks 42nd.
- In size, the state ranks 46th.
- If you’re like me and can never tell Vermont & New Hampshire apart on the map, use this little trick: Vermont is shaped like a V (smaller at the bottom) and New Hampshire is shaped like a lower-case N (smaller at the top). Hope that helps.
So, New Hampshirites, what’s the one cool thing that we have to see when we’re there?
Also, have you figured out the order of these episodes? I know at least two people that have reached out with the answer, it’s not super-hard. But if you haven’t puzzled it out, maybe next week’s episode will help.
Speaking of which, here’s your clue:
What state boasts the longest continuous street in the United States?
Obscure and weird, but if you’re from there, you probably know this fact. Make sure you’re back here, next Wednesday for a new episode.
Thanks for listening.
