GeoQuiz Parody

From: Abby Goldstein
Length: 01:16

This short piece pokes fun at the popular GeoQuiz segment of PRI's The World. Read the full description.

Default-piece-image-0 Originally aired during the August broadcast of the Texclectic Radio Hour on KERA 90.1, this short piece is a parody of the popular GeoQuiz segment on The World. I actually had a listener call after we aired this piece and ask for the answer, not realizing that it was a joke.

Review of GeoQuiz Parody

Excellent execution.

Funny idea, but I'm not sure I understand who the joke is on here.

Enjoyed listening in any case.

No pans or slams. Recall your mother's words: "If you don't have anything nice to say..."

Ah! Ah!!!! I... Want... To... Say... What... I... Thought. Must. Be. Nice!!!!! Must. Not. Speak. True. Ah! Ugh! Opinion!!!! Uh! I think this is ... I want to say that this is ... Be nice! BE! NICE!
Judge for yourself.
