Put on your high tops, sip on some Hi-C, and snack on some Hydrox, because we’re going high-speedin’ down that super highway of information. In this hodgepodge quiz episode, Chris gets stately with some very strange official state what’s-its, and we find out what state is the only one to have an “official state flavor.” Karen gives the gang some financial know-how with a punny stock symbol quiz. People have been trying to tell the future using the weirdest things — take Dana’s divination quiz and find out. And Colin gets a blast from the past, and challenges us in a round of “Have You Ever Noticed?” Starring Karen Chu, Colin Felton, Dana Nelson, and Chris Kohler.

Good Job, Brain! #129: Father of Mine (2014-10-09)
Chris is back, and he has a new spawn! What better way to celebrate his new fatherhood than having an episode dedicated to dad-dom.

We tackle paternal puzzles and problems, and weird dads of the animal kingdom. And a Music Round of lyrical odes to fathers and sons. ALSO: cotton candy grapes, “Um, Actually.” Starring Karen Chu, Colin Felton, Dana Nelson, and Chris Kohler.

What to do when killer bees attack? Or when a shark is circling around you? Find out the real way to deal with animal encounters (Spoiler: yes, movies and TV have been lying to us).

MOVERS & SHAKERS, this one’s for you! Ever wondered about the things you bring with you when you’re on the go? We share quizzes, trivia, and history about some iconic portable necessities. How the Nintendo Game Boy ruled the world, and the genius behind it. We sure love our beverages, and Colin’s got a quiz about drinks on-the-go. And of course, FOOD — trivia about Chinese takeout, and the brilliant model of the fast food drive-thru window. After you digest that food on-the-go, maybe stop by a porta-pottie? Because Dana has a whole quiz on THAT (of course). ALSO: Listener shout-outs, Bootylicious “Um, Actually.” Starring Karen Chu, Colin Felton, Dana Nelson, and Chris Kohler.

Good Job, Brain! #125: ALL QUIZ BONANZA! #25 (2014-09-03)
We figured out our Ninja Turtle equals! Colin, our no-nonsense Leonardo, decided to embarrass us with a quiz about British sayings. Nappy? Agony Aunt? Listen to our attempt to mind the American-British gap. And let’s play another round of “BRAD PITT? OR LASERS?!” Dana, our brainy Donatello, takes us into the world of cheesily-titled Lifetime movies, and a quiz about famous Freds. Chris, our cool-but-rude Raphael, throws abbreviation puzzles at us, and challenges us to an alliterative “Movie Moniker” game. And Karen, the party-hearty Michelangelo, has some questions about honest slogans about famous brands. Starring Karen Chu, Colin Felton, Dana Nelson, and Chris Kohler.
