Good Job, Brain!
What It Is
Friends get together to play trivia games and explore obscure facts.
Episodes typically run under an hour. Up until August of last year, the show consistently put out a new episode every week. Since then, they’ve been very sporadic and have only released five new episodes. The entire archive of 194 episodes (they swear they’re going to get to 200) is available on the iTunes page.
What About It
So, I like trivia games and puzzle games and I like this show a lot. It’s fun to play along and see if I can beat the players on the podcast to the right answer. There is nothing as satisfying as saying the correct answer immediately and then listening to the podcasts hosts struggle to come up with the answer and it’s also super-fun when some challenging game is over my head. The people on the show are a lot of fun, particularly live-wire Karen. The energy is high and the chemistry is good. This isn’t the kind of show that’s going to change your life or elevate podcasting to a new level of brilliance, but it’s always an entertaining and fun listen.
You’re into weird trivia.

Best Entry Point
I don’t particularly have a favorite out of the ones I’ve heard. Pick one that involves a topic you’re interested in.
