Welcome to the first episode of Season Five! It’s episode 214 of the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Trivia Podcast. I’m your host Brian Rollins and we’re starting things off with a roar and covering the Jurassic Park Franchise including all six movies.
That’s right, this season we’re going back to movies, books, comics, and whatnot for our topics. Got a suggestion for a topic? Great, let me know at DorkyGeekyNerdy.com. We’ve done a few suggested topics in the past and I have a few scheduled this season. That said, I don’t have the entire season mapped out yet, so there’s room if you’ve got a good idea.
But, you’re not here to listen to the nuts and bolts of the show. You want trivia. So let’s get Season Five started.

And that’s it for Jurassic Park movie trivia. I hope you enjoyed it. I’ve always been a big fan of all the movies, good or bad. Dinosaurs are always awesome. I remember watching the first movie just after graduating high school. I think I cried when we got our first full glimpse of dinosaurs.
Tell what your favorite part of the series has been. If you haven’t read the original book, I highly recommend it. It’s a touch dated, but the concepts in there are still relevant today.
I’ll see you back here next week for another episode. Here’s a clue:
Which DC superhero debuted in July 1940 and is still in print to this day?
It’s been so long since I’ve done a comic book episode. I’m excited for this one. I have a whole bunch of comic book trivia episodes on the schedule this year. If we haven’t covered your favorite yet, let me know.
This has been episode 214 of the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Trivia Podcast.
