Who’s up for some Harry Potter Trivia? Every great journey has to start somewhere. The billion dollar plus franchise got its start with Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Or, to us North Americans, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Either way, it’s past time we went into the Wizarding World and the 20th episode seemed like the perfect time to do it.
Grab your wand and quills and get to class. You don’t want detention with Snape again!
When you’re done with your O.W.L. exams, please take a moment to subscribe, review, and rate the podcast. We need your help to spread the word and share the show with others.
Be the chosen one of your family and surprise them with a trip to Universal Orlando where you visit Hogsmead and Diagon Alley. It’s so cool! Be sure to try the Butterbeer.

Every great journey has to start somewhere.
Hello. I’m Brian Rollins and this is the Dorky, Geeky, Nerdy Trivia Podcast. This week, we hit the 20 episode mark. And with it, we hit one of the most popular books of all time, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Or, as we Americans know it, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Either way, this book kicked off the billion-plus dollar franchise and had kids (and more than a few adults) checking the skies for an owl bearing their acceptance letter to Hogwarts.
If you’re new to the show, welcome. If not, welcome back. We’ll give you 3 rounds of 10 questions each. If you need a scorecard or scoring rules, head over to DorkyGeekyNerdy.com/rules.
Got it? Excellent. Time to head off to class. Better hurry, you don’t want detention with Snape again.

Head over to DorkyGeekyNerdy.com for links to past episodes and how to find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit. If you want to help keep us going, check out our book of the week. Since you probably already own a copy of the Harry Potter books, we’re recommending the newly released Harry Potter, A History of Magic. It follows the real-world origins of the Wizarding World mythos along with photos and illustrations. There’s also an audiobook version narrated by Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer that has audio clips of interviews with academics and the people behind the Harry Potter world.
That’s it for me. I have to get the owls ready to distribute the episode out to all our subscribers. I’m your host, Brian Rollins, and thanks for listening.
