Quiz Whiz

In Britain, there is a quiz show called “University Challenge.” It’s my favorite TV show. I watch it on YouTube, at night. My predilection, as it were.

On my latest Q&A podcast, I have a star of the most recent tournament: David Landon Cole, who is a doctoral student at York (political science). We talk about the show, naturally, and other things too: British culture, the life of the mind, etc.

Mr. Cole is a most unusual guest — and a most interesting and genial one too. You will want to check him out, for “a break away from the everyday” (which was a fast-food slogan, long ago).
