Third one is the best!

Could have sworn this was on sale at some point (Daily Deal?) but missed it the last go-round. Audible had a Series Sale in April 2022 where this was available for $6, and figured it was worth a try. It's basically 100+ trivia segments of a few minutes each, and it's both interesting and funny. Thought about getting the first two releases in the series as they were also on sale, but the audio quality for the first two ranged from Recorded In A Closet to Narrator Has A Cold.
