We’re Lauren and Julia, your hosts [hostesses?] of “Miss Information”– a trivia podcast for ladies [and gents] who love cool trivia and sticking it to annoying teams at pub quiz.
We’re BFFs with a passion for history, literature, art, pop culture, and all things trivia-related. Lauren had the brilliant idea for us to channel our energies into launching a trivia podcast in July 2017, and we managed to put this all together with the help of Tall Boy Productions. Each week, we plan to share information with you about a specific topic, and then offer you ten quiz questions. Hopefully, you’ll all learn a little something and make a few friends along the way. We’d love to hear your feedback and suggested topics for future eps from our beloved listeners [fandom name TBD].
