This is MeatEater Trivia, the only game show where conservation always wins.
If you’re not familiar with the show, it’s a bonus podcast that we release several times a month on the MeatEater Podcast feed. These are trivia you won’t find on Trivial Pursuit or Jeopardy, because these questions come from our four departments: Hunting, Fishing, Conservation, and Cooking. I’m the show’s creator and host, Spencer Neuharth.
Episode 329: Let’s play, idiots! MeatEater Trivia VII just released today. It features Steve Rinella, Ryan Callaghan, Brody Henderson, Sean Weaver, Kevin Gillespie, Kimi Werner, Hunter Spencer, Chester Floyd and Corinne Schneider vying for the title of trivia champion. And, as always, the winner chooses which conservation organization MeatEater will donate $500 to on their behalf.
Here are the 10 questions on this week’s show. If you want to play along and find out the answers, be sure to listen to the latest episode of MeatEater Trivia.
