The Quiz Show: When Tech Goes Rogue

And now it’s time for The Quiz Show!

That’s when we bring back Leszek Pawlowicz, our resident quizmaster who has won a Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions. Each time he’s on, he’ll play one of us in a game of trivia, hosted by our producer Sarah Ventre.

This week he’s playing against KJZZ's All Things Considered host, Heather Van Blokland.

Last week we gave you a puzzle to solve, and randomly selected two entries.

What can you catch but not throw?

The answer is: a cold! Other correct answers included “the flu.”

Our randomly selected winners this week are Eric Lewis and Slade Richards. Leszek will play on behalf of Eric, and Heather will play on behalf of Slade.

Congratulations to this week’s winner, who got a special KJZZ prize. We’ll keep bringing Leszek back, so stay tuned for the next listener puzzle and your chance to be one of our at home players!
