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.

17 | William Shakespeare Trivia

Forsooth! This week we adjourn from the lab and head to the theater. Or theatre, if you prefer. Regardless, our trivia this week is all about the life and works of The Bard, William Shakespeare. His works are studied by many students and his plots are the archetypes for many of the works of fiction written from the Seventeenth Century to today. How well do you remember you High School English classes?

14 | Disney Renaissance Trivia

With the new Aladdin movie rolling out into the theaters this week, it seemed like a good time to revisit the decade in which Disney Animation got its groove back. In the 1980's, Disney Animation had fallen on hard times. As they moved into the 90's, however, Disney Animation had found (or rediscovered) a formula for entertaining movies that would enthrall everyone. Let's get going with Disney Renaissance Trivia for Episode 14.

It’s a whole new world that you want to be part of, out there, in the circle of life, just around the riverbend, where you can go from zero to hero.

With the live-action remake of Aladdin hitting theaters this week, it seemed fitting to look back at a special period during Disney Animation’s history.

Hi there, I’m your host, Brian Rollins and this is the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Trivia podcast. Our topic in this episode is the Disney Renaissance. Specifically, the 10 year period from 1989 and ending in 1999. The movies from this period marked a return to the quality of films that Walt Disney himself personally worked on and turned the company’s reputation around.

For those of you that are new to the podcast, welcome. Every episode, we have three rounds of ten questions. Each round is harder than the one before. If you need rules to help you score your game (either by yourself or with a group), head over to

I hope you enjoyed this new adventure in trivia podcasting. It does mean twice as many episodes per week (which several people have requested). We’ll see how well I manage the new load.

A huge shout out to Blaine Dowler who wrote nearly all of the questions for this episode. He hosts a variety of very geeky podcasts over at I’ll drop a link on the show notes for this episode.

3 | 1980’s Video Game Trivia

We're heading back in time to get some 1980's Video Game Trivia

As a kid, I spent a lot of time and quarters in the arcade during the 1980’s. It was a noisy, chaotic, awesome place. Then everything changed when every kid I knew (and myself) got an Atari.

We still chomped down pizza and chugged soda, but we could do it in the privacy of our own homes. The 80’s was a transformative time for gaming and chock full of wonderful facts to mine. 

What was your favorite arcade game back then? I'm partial to the classics. Ms. Pac-Man, Joust, and Tron all ate my quarters like they were going out of style. I could never manage to get very far on Dragon's Lair. Even as a kid, my reaction time sucked.

Let's get going to the 1980's for some Video Game trivia.

So, it only seemed right to kick off the Dorky, Geeky, Nerdy Podcast with an homage to the 1960's Sci-Fi TV classic. Hailing frequencies open and let's begin with trivia for Star Trek: The Original Series.
