Do you love trivia AND morning zoo crew radio energy? Can you name the poet who wrote The Rime of the Ancient Mariner AND aspire to owning a pontoon boat in the Ozarks? Do you know the difference between the brewing processes if lager and ale AND you’ve referred to IPAs as “hipster beers”? Can...Read full review »

As someone who has been a longtime fan of both bar trivia and trivia-based game shows, this podcast has been a gift for the past few years. I play it every night while I cook dinner and play along with the contestants/hosts!

Jonathan is still condescending to other hosts/guests, and generally treats people like crap, which makes it unlistenable. That is unfortunate because it could be a good podcast.

As a trivia host and writer, I don't often get the chance to play trivia. But this podcast gives me the opportunity to play along, learn a few things and be entertained by terrific hosts. As I spend large chunks of time driving (for a separate job), Jonathan, Chris, Ben and the gang really...Read full review »

Yes, let the hate flow through you.

For the past few months, I’ve been trying to find a good pub style trivia podcast, TW is by far the best... the discussions at each questions makes it fun to play along with, and the questions are amazing! This is way better than having questions thrown at you and the answers at the end of the...Read full review »
kharty21 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/17/20
The questions are generally well written. Not too difficult or too easy. The format is entertaining. The main host (Jonathan) has a big personality and it comes across negatively at times. I think the show could benefit from rotating hosts regularly and giving J a break from micromanaging...Read full review »

Poor research and the moderator apparently didn’t graduate from middle school? When naming African countries the moderator not only got half of the names wrong but also said countries which weren’t even IN Africa. Amateur and embarrassing.
shannon493 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/20
Loved this podcast when I originally found it about a year and a half ago. Listened to almost every episode. Now it has become very awkward and cringe-worthy and I only listen when I’ve run out of new episodes of other podcasts. Jonathan’s know-it-all, “well actually” personality is almost...Read full review »

Great questions, but Jonathan is extremely obnoxious, forces his answers on his teammates, argues whenever he is wrong, and exceedingly braggadocious about his intelligence. I stopped listening for a while because of this, and tried it again. It’s only become worse.
Bjaustin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/09/20
Look forward to a new episode hitting my playlist. Well put together podcast that is both fun and educational. I would pay if I could for more episodes, but unfortunately society says I have to make mortgage payments. Keep up the good work, enjoy what all 4 of you add to the show!

This is the BEST trivia podcast I know. You guys are so funny, great questions, and it is very entertaining. I just recently started listening and I love that there are so many episodes to listen to even though I am not a patron, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to listen to all of them! I really...Read full review »

Upon my first listen, there was a question about black widow spiders. One of the guys referred to it as “poisonous”. They are VENOMOUS, not poisonous. There is a big difference.
AKench47 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/11/20
They drag the trivia in with nonstop talking and laughing at their own comments. Luke easily be cut down to 20 minutes of actual trivia. Talk less and more questions. It is trivia after all... 30 seconds a question is still to much. Also, more historical trivia would be nice. I feel like these...Read full review »
Taylor Leigh V via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/09/20
Found this show when searching for shows to fill the void left by the absence of Good Job Brain. It has now become my first choice for a good trivia fix. Since I am all about girl power, I am team Carmella all the way as she provides the balance that some other trivia shows could use and she...Read full review »
ftriv via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/28/20
The questions are typically very good. Carmela is a great host as is Benjamin. Other parts of the show make it hard to listen to. The joking with each other can quickly come across as passive aggressive behavior and makes it awkward to listen to at times. Also the constant breaking into song is...Read full review »

I’ve loved trivia for years but have never connected with hosts on other podcasts. I have listened subscribed and become a Patreon supporter so that I can have all episodes. I love the banter and competitiveness! I am almost caught up on all of the shows and it’s making me sad to think I’m going...Read full review »
Phantom813 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/18/20
Not only do we have to listen to constant inane laughter and Carmella finding the weirdest reasons to bring up her age (omg, we get it, you’re the youngest), but unlike other podcasts who’ve backed off patreon now that most are out of work because of the global pandemic, this podcast has done the...Read full review »

Long time TWA lurker here. It took me a while to find a trivia podcast that I liked the format. This is by far my favorite. I laugh, I learn and I can’t stop listening.
shellie667 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/12/20
Happy to see they’re using their platform to have a conversation about a topic that has been silenced for too long because it may make people feel “uncomfortable” or whatever the case. Spread it!
Capn Nubs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/20
Could be a great Trivia Podcast but for them shoving their politics down your throat every now and again. I guess they have to show how "woke" they are.Read full review »

I had heard every episode of Trivial warfare so far an it has been ok. I got to listening to the Shakespeare episode and the Questioner started in on a racisct rant about white people - The host did not stop her or refute her open racisim. I am suprised it was not edited out or the whole episode...Read full review »

Simply the best trivia show. It’ll make you laugh, it’ll make you cry Oh and you’ll learn something

I love this podcast. Trivia questions are a perfect difficulty level. If I had one suggestion I’d say more women’s episodes! Thanks for all the entertainment :)
EdieInCharlottesville via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/11/20
My friends and I travel 90 minutes each way for work each day. We stumbled across your podcast whilst desperately searching for something to make the commute bearable. Trivial Warfare is funny, likeable and often educational. Thanks for making the drive to work a whole lot easier, you guys are...Read full review »

I stumbled across TW during a 36 hour - 2 day solo drive a year ago... It quickly became an obsession and a year on I am almost through the entire back catalogue for the second time! I spend my commute each day laughing and screaming at my radio as I play along with my car 'family'... My...Read full review »
Janie7777777 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/20/20
I used to love this podcast, and I could handle Jonathan’s personality in small chunks, but now the podcast feels like 80% banter and Jonathan putting people down and only 20% trivia. Really disappointing and a poor show of class from what was once a good podcast.
Tori4455 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/09/20
Hilarious, educational, fun. Make this your next listen on a road trip.
JMJ23 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/03/20
The host of this podcast is all about drama and on top of that, steals content from other writers without so much as a thank you. Pretty embarrassed I used to be a fan. Take note - lots of people are pulling their money from this podcast... there has to be a reason.
Melody (S8) via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/19
Content is amazing and the questions are the perfect balance of difficult and easy. But the hosts will wear your down to the point where you can’t listen any more. Not everyone is bad, Ben and Chris are very fun and entertaining. Jonathan is an egotistical, narcissistic, and often jerk of a...Read full review »

I discovered Trivial Warfare a few months ago and have steadily digested every episode I can get my hands on at a rate of 8+ hours a week. As a girl who has always reveled in her nerdiness and has alway sought to be a connoisseur of random and possibly useless facts, trivia has always been an...Read full review »

10/1 Update...after this week’s episode I’ve decided Jonathan is just too unkind with his words, so I will be unsubscribing. Once I was obsessed with this podcast, but lately I can’t get over how Jonathan speaks to his “friends.” He is always “joking” but it come across cruel to me. Especially...Read full review »
JillQ2016 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/01/19
I’m currently listening to the live in Vegas episode. The game is fun and entertaining, but Carmella’s constant vocal fry is a big speed bump in the fun and is just plain annoying. It comes and goes making it seem like she’s forcing the fry. I may listen again, but will probably skip the episodes...Read full review »

I used to love this podcast. I love most of the hosts, I don’t mind the bit of conversations and I think most of their interaction is great...except..I can’t handle Jonathan’s personality. Don’t mean to call him out but it’s made my husband and I stop listening. He comes across as egotistical and...Read full review »

I look forward to starting my week with a new episode from Trivial Warfare. I try and save that episode for my Monday commute to work but sometimes I just can’t wait!

This used to be my favorite podcast. I couldn’t wait for the next episode. Now I find it’s a filler. Once I fast forward through the intros, and usually the Warm it up Chris segment as well. The questions are very good, however everything else is generally annoying. Because I don’t pay for...Read full review »

Because this show used to be my favorite and now I only listen to certain episodes. I love the trivia and the banter and the guests but some of the hosts have really turned me off mainly due to what feels like them pushing their societal/political beliefs on the listeners. I understand we all...Read full review »

Enjoy the podcast but...I understand everybody has their own opinions and it’s your podcast and what not but after the latest episode I must say...I don’t tune in to listen to political spiel. There’s other places I can go for that...

I've been listening to Trivial Warfare for about 2 years, and have probably listened through the entire catalog 3-4 times. I look forward to the new episodes each week, but the older episodes really have great replay value because you can listen to them in the background at work / home and...Read full review »
