A real grab bag in this week's ALL QUIZ - from fake James Brown to key lime pie; from New Jersey to consoles. Take the heteronym challenge and find the pair of identical words with totally different meaning and sounds. If there's a New Jersey...then where's the original Jersey? Is there an original Zealand? Karen's got regional American food on her mind and it's Chris' turn for a Music Quiz....of Mr. White-And-Nerdy himself, Weird Al Yankovic and a parody challenge.

ALSO: weird story behind the invention of safety pins

RUNTIME: 52 minutes 40 seconds

Hi Guys,

I'm a Nigerian/Brit, living and working in Paris and a massive fan of the show. I particularly like how it caters to a broad age demographic, of which I am at the upper end...

One quick quasi Erm actually!!!! though. In the last episode (160), a comment was made that Newark (as in NJ) was not named after [Old] Ark. While this is technically true, it was in fact named after [Old] Newark in England.

One last thing, there is a UK quiz show called only connect which I think you guys would absolutely love - do check it out.

Keep up the good work, Dennis

Please Americans learn some geography!
Newark - a town in Northern England.
Zealand - an island of DENMARK.

I enjoy listening to most of your podcasts but get so frustrated by American insularity.
