Ah, the outdoors! Fresh air, lucious greenery, and..... a million things that will try to kill you. So pack up your think and let's head up the summit of outdoors trivia: what to do when killer bees attack? Or when a shark is circling around you? Find out the real way to deal with animal encounters. (Spoiler: yes, movies and TV have been lying to us.) Folk mnemonics, the origin of the Swiss Army Knife, and the very dramatic and weird life of a deer tick. And let's feast on the science behind freeze-dried foods, and we do a live taste test of some of the weirdest camp foods out there.

We want you to share your brilliant ideas and creations with the GJB universe! We're calling for listener audio submissions, and inviting you to make a GJB bumper ad. We might just use yours on the show. Be silly! Be theatrical! Be positive! Be brainy! The sky's the limit. And for a behind-the-scenes look, check out our never-aired bumper skit we made for fun. It's weird.
You can email us your GJB bumper ad masterpiece to email@example.com. And we're back next week with a full episode brimming with our usual trivia and maybe poo facts.

MOVERS & SHAKERS, this one's for you! Ever wondered about the things you bring with you when you're on the go? We share quizzes, trivia, and history about some iconic portable necessities: how the Nintendo Game Boy ruled the world and the genius behind it, we sure love our beverages and Colin's got a quiz about drinks on the go. And of course, FOOD - trivia about Chinese takeout, and the brilliant model of the fast food drive-through window. After you digest that food on the go, maybe stop by a portapottie? Because Dana has a whole quiz on THAT. Of course.

I think we figured out our ninja turtle equals. Colin, our no-nonsense Leonardo decided to embarrass us with a quiz about British sayings. Nappy? Agony Aunt? Listen to our attempt to mind the American-British gap. And let's play another round of "BRAD PITT? OR LASERS?!" Dana, our brainy Donatello takes us into the world of cheesily-titled Lifetime movies, and a quiz about famous Freds. Chris, our cool but rude Raphael, throws abbreviation puzzles at us, and challenge us to an alliterative "Movie Moniker" game. And Karen, the party-hearty Michelangelo has some questions about honest slogans about famous brands.
