Hello, feminist weirdos of the internet!
We are Ben McKenzie and Ken McBenzie, and we host a weekly queer, feminist pub quiz every Monday at Shotwell’s Bar in San Francisco called No Sports Trivia. It’s weird and dark and great.
We write a new game every week, on themes like “A Very Witchcraft Christmas,” “Island of Misfit Sex Toys,” “Electopocolypse”, “Hidden Vagenda,” and “Women who Crime”. The research process leads us to dark and delightful corners of history, culture, and the natural world, and there’s just no way to fit everything we want to say about the Deathly London Beer Flood of 1814 into one pithy trivia question.
The solution to this painful problem? A podcast, of course! We’re going to make free, weekly, commute-length episodes that feature some of our research gems from that week’s game. We’ll have some of our local-hero friends and neighbors (activists, artists, drag queens, bartenders, and more) come on the show to play trivia for fabulous prizes from the Mystery Bag (this is how we clean our house).
Our first three episodes will be available Jan 1, check back for more info!
