Show Notes

Welcome to Episode #12 of the Last Call Trivia Podcast! As always, our show kicks off with three general knowledge Trivia questions in Round One to get the ball rolling. In Round Two, our Trivia Team gets to try their hand at a round of questions all about genericized trademarks.

Round One

Today’s show starts off with a Books Trivia question about a multinational conglomerate publishing company that was founded in 2013. 

Next up, we have an Anatomy Trivia question…or is it a spelling Trivia question? Either way, our Trivia Team brainstorms through a handful of the 206 bones in the human body in search of the correct answer.

Round One concludes with a Movies Trivia question about a heated debate between Ben Affleck and the director of Armageddon.


Bonus Question

Today’s Bonus Question is a follow-up to the Armageddon question in Round One. So if you’re a big fan of the movie listen up…or maybe don’t. Because in today’s Bonus Question, we’re talking about the number of scientific inaccuracies in the film as called out by NASA themselves. Spoiler alert: it’s a lot.


Round Two

As usual, Round Two of the game is themed after a particular topic, and today we’re talkin’ about Genericized Trademarks Trivia. P.S., the common bond between zippers, aspirin, and popsicles is that they’re all genericized trademarks themselves! 

Round Two starts with a Tools Trivia question. One member of the Trivia Team is able to draw on their experience from theater set design to help brainstorm some potential answers.

Next up, we have a Products Trivia question which is a fittingly general category for the theme of genericized trademarks.

Round Two wraps up with a Language Trivia question that allows our Trivia Team full of Anglophiles to put their knowledge of British slang to good use.


Final Question

It’s time to finish up the game strong with a multi-part Final Question in the category of Companies. Who’s ready to show off their business acumen??

In today’s Final Question, the Trivia Team is asked to name the country where four specific companies were founded. While the Team is able to breeze through most of them, one particular company throws them through a loop. Listen in to see if you can reason your way to the right answer!
