Subdue the Guru : a Gist Game Show
Subdue the Guru : a Gist Game Show
Join Mike Pesca host of the Slate podcast “The Gist” as he invites experts from the fields of sports, science, music, movies, economics and politics on stage for a discussion-and a challenge. Select audience members will have a chance to face off in a battle of trivia. Cash and prizes* will be on offer to anyone who can out-duel the esteemed guests in their areas of expertise. This game show is in the spirit of the old series show “Beat the Geek” ; only our guests are learned gurus, not geeks. Except for the ones who are geeks.
