We're down a person but we're making it up by SMUSHING MORE QUIZZES UP YOUR EAR-HOLES. Yo dawg, I heard you like portmanteaus - so enjoy a crazy portmanteau-ception! Chris gets musical with "Who am I?" and blows our minds with tricky foreign-sounding company name quiz. Colin whets our appetite with questions about restaurants and cooking, and listeners Ben & Jon crafted us a rather....sinister segment.

ALSO: E.L.V.I.S. watches TV!

RUNTIME: 50 minutes 20 seconds

Hey, I checked your site all night Tuesday and didn't see this posted( I stopped checking at 1AM Wednesday). There seems to the a discrepancy between when things are posted and when they are actually available.

When I read "we're down a person" I thought someone was leaving the show for good. I had a tiny heart attack, cried, had a temper tantrum, called 911 and then decided to listen to the episode, only to find Dana is just gone for the week. phew! Now I need a nap.

A pet peeve. On your all quiz show #85 (17 * 5) Chris talked about a French Dip sandwich as a “French roll with the au jus”. “Au jus” is a description of how the sandwich is served; that is: “with Juice” or the dripping from roasting the meat. Please stop using it as a noun. If he wants to shorten it he can say it is a sandwich with the “Jus” but never with “Au Jus”.

End of Rant.

It is not at all easy to crack any quiz. As you being one man compete with thousands of brains.
