Hear my Quiz Time quiz over at The Perfect Bound Podcast

adamStrangeInFlightI submitted another quiz to the folks over at The Perfect Bound Podcast and they used it for this week’s Quiz Time segment.  The theme is Amorous Aliens, and looks at comic characters who sought love among the stars.

They made some tweaks and added a bit more background info, but that ain’t a bad thing.

Give it a listen and see what you think!

The quiz is at the end, but the whole podcast is quite fun and informative.

Give it a listen over on their site

I said, “can I use the whole block?”

I quite enjoyed making it, and the scene always got a big laugh.
