Hello Warheads! Chris is back with this week’s show notes. This was an exciting and fast paced episode as we welcomed back Carmela as show host. I will be honest, going in to this episode, I was well rested and looking forward to trying to break Jonathan’s winning streak. It was a tall order due to Jonathan winning the last 11 episodes that he did not host.
Pre-show conversation: we would love to hear anyone’s fun airline stories. Send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org.

This will now be one of my favorite moments of the show. I cannot tell you how angry and frustrated Jonathan was after this question. He truly knew the answer, but it did not come to him. As he talked about in the episode, his pride was truly hurt. He probably still is smarting from this answer. It was AWESOME!!!

I have never been so excited after getting a question done. I was so pumped. I loved going in to the final question with a lead (even though it is slight).
