Money makes the world go ’round. And it makes up our trivia episode this week. Normally, April 15 is Tax Day here in the US, but that’s delayed until July 15, 2020. So, how about some Money Trivia.
Fun Money Fact: The US Bureau of Printing and Engraving goes through 9.7 tons of ink every day. Boggles the mind, doesn’t it?
But, it still seems like a fun way to spend the day. When you’re done listening, we need your help by leaving us a good review on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you subscribe to podcasts. We’d really appreciate the support.
When you’re done with Money Trivia, we’ve got a favor to ask. Down at the bottom of this page is a quick two-question feedback survey. We need to know what you think of the difficulty and the topic. This feedback is critical to making the show even better. Thanks!
You can follow us on Reddit, Twitter, or Facebook. It’s a great way to keep up with the show, the hosts, and your fellow trivia nerds. Come by and say hi!

I learned a lot on this one. My dad used to collect coins, so thanks for the nostalgia trip. I’ll try some of the quesitons on him.
Funny how this rolled out during a currency shortage!
