Meet Murray Bowron, one of the earliest encouragers of the Josh Podcast podcast Show, who is a trivia buff and all-around great guy.

We talk about whether trivia is trivial; if so-called useless knowledge plays a role in living a meaningful life. We then touch on meaningless topics like music and mates.

Murray brings up the Wizard of Christchurch, too, which was news to me.

This is the Wizard of Christchurch who lectures on a ladder with his assistant Tinkerbell

We talk about Pete Yorn, who has a song called “Murray.” A good tune.

 

Also mentioned in this episode is a video (you may have missed) on the usage of the US’s “bro” and “dude” equivalent in New Zealand, or the word “mate.”
