Deeper, ever deeper, we penetrate Geeks Who Drink Pub Quizzes on the road to Geek Bowl IX! Having now heard from a fearsome team of players and an awesome party host of a quizmaster, we level up once again by going inside the black box of the editorial process with Geeks Who Drink Head Editor Christopher Short! Ever wondered who writes the Geeks Who Drink questions? This is your chance to find out.

Christopher provides unique insight into how questions go from the brains of their team of writers to appearing before you six nights a week at pub quiz. We talk about his favorite types of rounds, how often you’re going to see a “Recently In Stuff” round, the rounds everyone hates, and a whole lot more. It’s everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Geeks Who Drink keeps this perpetual motion machine of pub quiz humming.

We also talk to Christopher about his experience as a Jeopardy Super Champ. He’s a six-time winner, and he gives us a peek at what that whole process is like.
