43: Our Favorite Things

  /  ITUNES  /  RSS 



Brown paper packages tied up with string...these are a few of my favorite things! Chris shares his Nintendo expertise and that old box of videogames in your attic might be worth lots of money! Colin quizzes us on his love of typography. Karen's favorite thing is actually extremely poisonous. And Dana schools us on her favorite thing: wordplay.

ALSO: how to prepare for a quiz bowl, genetic hybrids (ZORSE!), the trivia-heavy story of Fleetwood Mac, and "Painter? Or Cheese?"

RUNTIME: 45 minutes 24 seconds

I'm a new listener and still catching up on old episodes. I have to say I LOVED Dana's proverb quiz. Good job!

But wait, there are actual Roald Dahl/Ian Fleming connections! While Ian Fleming wrote the novel "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang", Roald Dahl did write the screenplay for the movie. Additionally, Roald Dahl wrote the screenplay for the James Bond movie "You Only Live Twice" based on the Ian Fleming novel. Pretty neat!
