Many thanks to Amy Ningen for pulling together the show notes for this week's show!
This episode features the first of the Listener Tournament quarterfinal matches.
Chris opened the show dedicating it to his mother, Linda, who passed away soon after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She loved the show and Chris was buoyed by messages of support from the Warheads.
The first half featured the matchup between Kris Eve and Chris Hollister in the quarterfinals.
The first matchup features Jeff Revilla, the host of Stuff I Never Knew, facing off against world traveler Jeff Jones. Two Jeffs enter, only one leaves.
The second matchup of the episode is one that everybody has been waiting for. It's Carmela Smith, the First Lady of Trivial Warfare squaring up against the Trivial Workshop guru and recent Geek Bowl Champion Russ Friedewald!
