Geek the Stump

Episode 153: Geek the Stump

NOT-SO-EPIC TRIVIA

Throughout the decades, Star Trek fans have always tested each other at trivia. They challenge one another with seemingly impossible questions to celebrate the most obscure and celebrated aspects of Star Trek.

Yeah, that’s not what’s going to happen today.

This week, Bill will have to answer questions along the level of Teen Jeopardy in “Geek the Stump!” (Dan’s turnabout response to our fan-favorite “Stump the Geek” episodes.)

Will Bill be able to answer the questions that a fifth grader who has only ever seen Trek ONCE could solve?  We’ll see! (It’s a good thing he’s on vacation because he may not want to come back after this performance!)

Enjoy the fun and the good times of Geek the Stump on this week’s installment of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast!

Supplemental #13: Geek the Stump

TRIVIA FOR PEOPLE BAD AT TRIVIA!

This week, Dan puts Bill’s Star Trek knowledge is to the test in a truly epic round of Geek the Stump!

Five tough trivia questions. (Well, more like tough for “Teen Jeopardy.”)

One multi-part bonus. (Weeeellll…we’ll see about that.)

Bill can’t use any reference materials of any kind–he has to rely on the knowledge in his tiny pea brain to answer the questions posed to him!

Will he be victorious?!  I think we all know the answer to that but, still…find out on this week’s episode of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast!

Supplemental #10: Geek The Stump – Again!

PAYBACK!

A message from Dan Davidson, co-host of Trek Geeks: YOUR Independent Star Trek Podcast

“Not too long ago, oh about the time the Patriots were hoisting their 5th Lombardi Trophy, my illustrious Executive Producer decided to subject me to a “Superbowl Sized” Stump the Geek episode.  I wasn’t at the top of my game, however I fared OK.  I told him that he would pay…and well, the time has come.

Ahhh Bill, my old friend.  Do you know the Klingon proverb that tells us revenge is trivia that is best served cold? It is very cold….is spaaaaaacccccceeee.”

On this Supplemental Episode, Dan rolls out another special edition of “Geek the Stump,” where the tables are turned and Bill has to answer Trek related questions with a completely made up point system!  Can Bill hold his own?  Will Dan throw in a couple softball questions to make things easier on his best friend, or will he show no mercy to retain his title as ultimate Trek Geek Trivia Champion?

Find out in this special Supplemental Episode of Trek Geeks!
