Episode 3: The Ruiner


Glad we got that out of the way.

So the topics were supposed to be a bit of a guessing game for our guests. But I went and ruined that too. Seems I can't do anything right.

But at least we have people playing this time. In case you want to spoil it for yourself, Doctor Who and The Walking Dead (comic and show!) are the topics for this show. With that in mind, I just want to say again: this episode has spoilers in it!  

Don't say I didn't warn you.

Episode 2: Alone Together

We have no players this week. But we're gonna do it anyway, because I bought a mixer, damnit. We sound way better in this episode.

Of the people that were lined up, nobody was available to play. We're confident that we'll have a line going around the block soon, so check back in a week or two.

Today you get to listen to Matthew and I do...basically what we do every day anyway, but this time in front of people on the internet.  May you learn something that will win you an argument.

Episode 1: Wherein Everyone Fails at Everything

Thanks for listening to I Know This One!  A trivia game for people who aren't as smart as they think they are.

Right now, that's mostly my friends and coworkers.

I wanted to get back into podcasting, and had started listening to Good Job, Brain! (You should too!) 

On the short-lived podcast I used to do we did a little news quiz at the end of each show, and it was always the best part. It seemed there currently aren't that many trivia podcasts out there, so it seemed like there was room to grow.

But I wanted to do something a little different than Good Job, Brain! and other random trivia games. 

So here's what we decided to do:

Each player gets to pick a category, not from a pre-determined list, but straight out of their own head. They can pick anything they think they're good at. The first two rounds cover each of those categories with five questions each. Both players get the opportunity to answer these questions. You'll get the rest of it as you listen.

Obviously, the rules could change. I'm writing this after recording the first episode and I'm already thinking about it. Hindsight and all that.

Lastly, I wanted to thank chip musician Disasterpeace again here for letting use "Funky Fruitstand" as the intro to the show. He doesn't promote or support the show in any way, but I wanted to support him for being a cool person. Check him out at Disasterpeace.com and on iTunes.

Download the show here. We had a great time making it, and we hope you enjoy it.
