So you like trivia night.
And your pub quiz game is on point.
You're a raging philomath who gets positively giddy at the prospect of learning new things,
Who endlessly listens to podcasts to fill your brain with geeky goodness,
Scours the internet for cool facts and knowledge,
And devours books at the cost of precious sleep.
But it still isn't enough for you.
Don't worry. We can help.
So, settle down, get ready,
And feast your eyes on the following:
(Let's start with some basics.)
1. TED Talks
2. Intelligence Squared
3. 99 Percent Invisible
Now, let's add some interesting blogs:
5. Now I Know
7. Futility Closet
9. You Are Not So Smart
Let's not forget reliable standbys:
11. The Skeptic's Dictionary
Whew. That's halfway there. Should we go on?
All right. Let's start getting into sites dedicated to more obscure knowledge:
12. Mental Floss
13. Damn Interesting
14. Dark Roasted Blend
15. The Museum of Ridiculously Interesting Things
Now, let's add a dose of humor to our trivia:
16. The Straight Dope

Finally, let's wrap it all up with some wanderlust.
20. Something About Maps
21. Fuck Yeah, Cartography!
22. Amusing Planet
23. Atlas Obscura
That should do it. Feeling overwhelmed? Don't be.
Know that you've got this.
Then, go ahead, and embrace that sense of wonder,
Celebrate all there is to discover about the world,
And prepare to have your mind blown.
And even though you may find yourself in an inescapable learning binge, and end up staying awake for hours on end to get through it all,
It's nothing a pro like you can't handle.
So go get 'em.
