Recap of “Live Streaming” Trivia Games (March 25, 2020)

My “trivia pardner” – whom also happens to be my Quarantine 2020 housemate/husband – and I checked out two “live stream” trivia shows Wednesday night. One of them was hosted by Mike D the Sporcle MC, who presented a one-game show broadcast from what appeared to be his living room! We also “tuned in” to a live stream of a show hosted by My Trivia Live “TJ” Devin. I didn’t take really good notes, but here are some questions anyway – starting with the Sporcle Live host’s show (please note they are not in order):
Also, sorry, no answers…just do your best (thanks)! I was just playing for fun and to hear some trivia questions again (boy was that nice…)
Mike D questions:
