Dorky Geeky Nerdy Season Three Finale
And another season passes us by. It’s been a long three years. But I don’t have to tell any of you that. A lot has changed since I rolled this show out in February 2019. Some for the good. Some for the not-so-good. But we’re here and we’re still asking (and answering) trivia questions. I hope you enjoy the Season Three Finale. Thanks for sticking with me for this long. I promise to keep plugging away with new episodes into Season Four (and beyond). As with our past Season Finales, we’ve comprised the Season Three Finale of questions from the past 51 episodes. And the fourth round, aka The Freaky Round? That’s back! So you’ve got 40 questions to deal with this week. Good luck! Share your score on Twitter, when you’ve finished this episode. A few folks have started it as a way to brag (or own their screw-ups). Either way, I’d love to hear how you did this week. Just tag us and tag #DorkyGeekyNerdy in your tweet.

Nintendo Trivia (Mario, Zelda, Metroid, & More)
It's trivia time. Nintendo trivia time. Our Legend of Zelda episode was pretty popular way back in Season One, so I figured it was time for more of the same. Thirty questions about the very old game company from Japan is what's on the table this week.

Alien Movie Trivia
In space, no one can hear your trivia questions. This week, we dive into the dark void with Alien Movie Trivia. That is, movies from the Alien film franchise (not just films with aliens in them). The first movie from 1979, was probably my first horror film, albeit heavily edited for television. But still, the franchise has stuck with me (and audiences) for a long time now. When you're done with Alien Movie Trivia, please take a moment to peruse our Dorky Geeky Nerdy Shop. We've got T-shirts and more that look cool and help keep the engines running and the monsters fed.

This week’s episode more than meets the eye. Well, actually, just the subject matter. Otherwise, it’s just another thirty trivia questions and this week, we’re tackling Transformers Trivia. This is our last episode of 2021, so I want to wish everyone out there a safe and happy New Year. This year wasn’t the one we had hoped for, so here’s to 2022 being better. If you haven’t gotten your booster shot yet, go get one. It’s the best thing we “regular Joes and Janes” can do to push back the pandemic. And hats off to doctors, nurses, and everyone else out there keeping us safe, healthy, and fed. A double-Happy New Year to you! We’ll see you back here next year. In the meantime, please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts, Podchaser, and now Spotify!

Name That Christmas Movie Trivia
Can you Name That Christmas Movie? We’ll give you three actors from the film and you have to guess the Christmas movie (or a movie that takes place during Christmas). I know these “Name That” episodes are some of the listeners’ favorites, so why not dive in for the Holidays? As always, you’ve got three rounds of ten questions each. Good luck and happy holidays. If there’s a film you think we’ve missed, let us know. Also, is there a movie we should not have included? Let the debate begin! Either way, we hope you have fun with Name That Christmas Movie. The shop is still open, but I don’t know if you’ll be able to get stuff in time for the big day. That shouldn’t stop you from going and looking. Get something for yourself! Ring in the new year with some Dorky Geeky Nerdy swag.
December 22, 2021
Name That Christmas Song Trivia
They're blaring out of stores and radios, so why not have a little Christmas Song Trivia to kick off the season. This week, I'm giving you a snippet of the lyrics and you've got to guess the song. Some are common tunes and others are more obscure, traditional ones. Either way, I think everyone is going to have a little fun. Grab some egg nog and let's get started. Feel like cheating? Here's a Spotify Playlist with all the songs on it. When you're done with Christmas Song Trivia, please take a moment to review the show on iTunes or Podchaser. We need to those votes and support to help boost the show. There's also a little bit more time before Christmas to order some Dorky Geeky Nerdy merchandise.

The Hobbit Trivia (Book & Film)

World War Two Trivia
Listener request! And I've been wanting to tackle World War II trivia for some time.

If you need rules or scorecards, you can find them here. When you're done, check out the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Shop. It helps to pay the bills here (we're pretty low-maintenance, but every little bit helps).

Peanuts Trivia (Charlie Brown & Snoopy)
I don't know about you, but Thanksgiving makes me think of Charlie Brown and Snoopy. So, this week, we're going to do some Peanuts Trivia for this week's show. Here in the US, it's Thanksgiving week. A time for food, fun, and traditions. One of the traditions in our house to sit and watch some of the Peanuts holiday specials. This week's show features a promo for a very cool little podcast, Tea Time Thoughts. A lot of people find history or reading or classical music boring, but I'm determined to take things out of the classroom setting and show you how fun it can be!

Do you have a plan to score well on today's episode? Well, good luck with this week's show, Battlestar Galactica Reboot Trivia. We're heading back to the days of 2004 before we had any idea of what this reboot of a 1970s show would look like. Have fun and see you again next week! Update: I had the episode in the can when the news came in about the passing of Dean Stockwell, who played John Cavill on the show. Dean Stockwell had a wide and varied career with many roles we geeks would love from Dune to Quantum Leap. RIP, Mr. Stockwell. You will be missed. A little side-note, the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Shop is now open! Get some merch from the show (and keep it going). When you're done with Battlestar Galactica Reboot Trivia, we need your feedback.

Star Trek Prequel Movie Trivia
It’s time to go back in time to visit the Final Frontier. This week, we're covering Star Trek Prequel Trivia. Specifically, the three films that have come out since 2009. The films were divisive, to say the least, but they did gross a lot of money and renewed interest in the franchise after it went dormant in 2005 with the end of Star Trek: Enterprise. So, this week, we're celebrating Star Trek's 55th birthday with thirty trivia questions. Good luck and Live Long & Prosper.

1970s Cartoon Trivia
Grab that super-sugary cereal and let’s watch some cartoons. This week, we’re featuring 1970s Cartoon Trivia. You know ’em, you love ’em. The 1970s represents the end of an era, of sorts.

Two years ago, we launched this weird little show and you're all still listening! We're not the top Trivia Podcast, but we're still growing. Thanks to everyone that's tuned in and a special thanks to everyone that's helped share the show. If you're new here, welcome to the show. This is not our usual format.

Untold History Trivia
As we work our way through Black History Month, I’m struck by all the stories being presented that never showed up in our history books. At least, not the ones used in Elementary and High School. So, I got to thinking, what other stories are out there? What are we missing? So, this episode is dedicated to the untold stories. The weird, the unusual, and the uncomfortable. So, whos is ready for Untold History Trivia? This one is going to be a little harder than our usual fare, but bare with me, I think you’ll like learning something new if you didn’t know it before. If you did know it, great you’re probably reading a lot more than most of us. As always, it’s three rounds of ten questions each.

Marvel's Black Panther Trivia
February is Black History Month and we’re celebrating the only way we know how: With trivia! Specifically, Black Panther Trivia. The first “mainstream” black comic book character, Black Panther is a proud, noble, and thoroughly awesome superhero. We’ve got thirty trivia questions to test your knowledge of the superhero, his enemies, his friends, and his many incarnations. This week, we also have a little PSA. In 2020, we lost Black Panther star, Chadwick Boseman to Colon Cancer. If you’re like me and getting close to turning 50, it’s time to start thinking about getting checked for Colon Cancer. It’s not fun, but it’s an easy way to prevent this disease. Doctors recommend when you turn 50, you get screened. If you have a family history of cancer, particularly Colon Cancer, you might want to get screen earlier than that. Losing such an excellent actor and man in Boseman is tough. We can honor his life by taking note and taking care of ourselves and our loved ones. And here ends the PSA. I hope you and your families are doing well. We’ll be back again next week with more trivia fun, just like Black Panther Trivia. I promise.

Feel-Good Movie Trivia

So good riddance to 2020 and here's to a better 2021! I've often told my kids that 2020 was the "year on pause" but I know that I've been lucky. A lot luckier than a lot of people. If you, or someone you know, needs a free audiobook, let me know. I've got a host of books that I've narrated that I can give away. It's not much, but it's a few hours of entertainment that might make the difference for someone during these trying times. To get a free book, just zip over to my personal website, TheVoicesInMyHead.com and make the request. May your 2021 be full of love, happiness, and prosperity. See you on the other side my friends!
