Lucy and Jenny are back continue to bring an international feel to proceedings when they are joined by another listener based outside of the UK - Patrick from Australia - whose identity is kept firmly under lock and key, to find out why, you'll have to listen. Our hosts also serve-up the absolute treat for the ears that is comedian and SERIOUS quizzer, Bethany Black! Bethany shares some amazing quiz stories from her life which have resulted in her being barred from venues and coming face to face with none-other than The Beast himself... friend of the show Mark Labbett of course!Lucy and Jenny opt to give Bethany a quiz in what *they* think should be her specialist subject....but what could that be? CLUE: They don't call her Bethany Black for nothing! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Fingers on Buzzers is brought to you by comedian and keen amateur quizzer Lucy Porter, alongside The Chase's very own Jenny Ryan. Whether you’re a Pointless armchair aficionado, nostalgic for the days of Going for Gold, or a bona fide Mastermind, this is the podcast for you. Jenny and Lucy speak to a host of people who work behind the scenes of our favourite TV quiz shows, including James Harkin (QI), Roger Tilling (the ‘Voice’ of University Challenge) and Jenny Hawker (Only Connect); plus we hear from epic winners and losers of quiz shows past and present, from Bullseye and Blockbusters to Britain's Brightest Family and everything in between. Lucy and Jenny will also discuss the BIG issues including the etiquette of pub quizzing, new quizzing technology and how questions have changed with the times. All the BIG questions will be asked (and answered.) What IS the difference between quiz shows and game shows? With the help of experts and enthusiasts alike, Jenny and Lucy get to the bottom of that and much, much more besides. There's also plenty of opportunities to play-along, as week-by-week Jenny coaches plucky layperson Lucy on the ‘quiz syllabus’, and in-turn Lucy tests the mettle of general knowledge guru Jenny with a weekly pop-quiz. Whether you're an Only Connect know-it-all, still dine-out on your Fifteen To One appearance from 1993, or only indulge in Trivial Pursuits on December 25th, this podcast is for you.
