04 Help, I'm a Serial Quizzer and Some Rappers Delight.

Technology has had positive and negative effects on the world of quiz, so Lucy and Jenny dig into that thorny topic. Whatever happened to Bamber Boozler? Have Lucy’s children been hypnotised by HQ’s Sharon Carpenter? Let’s find out.

Guests on this episode are notorious ‘serial quizzer’ Jon Stitcher talking us through his compulsion to quiz on telly, and Quiz Queen Jane Allen, founder member of the International Quizzing Association, who chats with us about the quiz scene across the world, from Croatia to India.

On the Quiz Syllabus, Lucy challenges Jenny on vexillology with questions on Flags of the World, and Lucy is tested in turn on Rappers’ Real Names. Which flags contain the colour purple? What are our Wu Tang Clan names? Tune in and find out!
