    Hey Michael — thank you for another great podcast. I listen regularly to it on my Android using PlayerFM. I clicked through to this site looking for show notes — more specifically for links or a reference list for the sources of the statistics quoted by you and Al. Where would I find that information?

      Robb – not sure which stats you are referring to, but I would reach out to Quizzify directly to get those reference points. Glad you are enjoying the show!
