Will Quiz Show Spank the Yanks?

8 August 2008


I posted earlier about our participating in a Canadian TV trivia quiz called Test the Nation. Promotions for our episode, “Canada, Eh?” are now online at http://www.cbc.ca/testthenation/

Katharine was one of a few on our team (Americans in Canada) who got asked to answer a few questions. Look here.

We appear briefly in the video found on the home page. Find us at about 4 minutes in. The teams were all being encouraged to cheer for themselves, but I had little desire to perpetuate the stereotype of arrogant, chest-pounding Americans. Something of a quandary when, after all, it was a competition!

The show airs September 7 and we’re not allowed to tell you who won. I’ll post again after the broadcast for those unable to see the finest in Canadian television.
