After the Fact

atf_robot_logoAfter the Fact is Claremorris Community Radio‘s weekly quiz trivia game.  It’s a bit like QI crossed with Sesame Street. Each week two teams face questions on a specific theme and the theme progresses alphabetically from one show to the next.

I’m the quiz master and the team captains are Andrew Newman, the host of Classical Sounds on Claremorris Community Radio, and Lorraine Murphy, who took over from Marcella Connolly after Series 1.  We’re also assisted by Clancy, our robot score-keeper!

Each show consists of four rounds:

  1. Multiple choice
  2. Connections
  3. Audio clips
  4. The Wiki Walk
