Good Job, Brain! #119: All Around the World (2014-07-24)
Please put your seat back in the full upright position, and your tray table up, as we’re about to take off into a travel-themed episode! Discover the strange origin of passenger air travel and exactly what you had to do to “fly” from New York City to Los Angeles. Dana’s got space tourism on top of mind, and Chris mapped out some funky destinations — but it’s all jumbled up in his anagram segment. Are you a world traveller? Then you’ll probably ace the airport code quiz, and our lonely island challenge. ALSO: Aussies rule! Starring Karen Chu, Colin Felton, Dana Nelson, and Chris Kohler.

Dana falls into a wiki cheese hole, while Colin gulps down the history of the milk container. And no, mice actually don’t usually go for cheese. ALSO: Solution to our Music Puzzle Challenge.

Continuing our two-part celebration of pub trivia! We share our own stories and tips from our own pub quiz experience, and lament our topic weaknesses.
