174: Whoops!


Goofs and gaffs, d'ohs and duhs, we tried getting all the banana peels cleared away for this trivia episode about mistakes. Ah, the joys of live TV and all that could go wrong... Take Colin's quiz about major TV slip-ups, and one oddball find from a classic TV show. From space missions to the stock market, Chris curates the greatest hits of tiny typos that had colossal consequences throughout history. Karen's riding along with Road Pig, visiting a few cartography mistakes. And Dana just felt mean and made us a quiz where our punishment for getting the answers wrong was eating unusual foods in... unusual shapes.

The Finnish translation for "sorry" in this episode is actually a bit... off. The word "pahoillani" is never used alone but always in a "olen pahoillani" ("I am sorry") phrase. Even then, that sounds very formal. If you meant a less formal translation, and I get the impression that you do, that would be "anteeksi". Google Translate just isn't very good with Finnish, I'm afraid, but if you ever need something translated to or from Finnish, I wouldn't mind doing it for you. Being a Finn myself, I bet my brain would do a good job at it.

Thanks for the countless hours of trivia and entertainment, by the way. I do hope you keep making more episodes for years to come.
