Civics 101 Trivia for June 4, 2022
Tune in every other Saturday on NHPR to hear our most recent trivia round and that week's qualifying question. We'll draw a random listener from the pool of correct answers to play Civics 101 Trivia with hosts Nick Capodice and Hannah McCarthy.
Last week's qualifying question was this: So far in US history, only one person has served as president in two non-consecutive terms. Which former governor of New York holds this achievement?
The answer was Grover Cleveland, and this week's winner was our colleague Taylor Quimby. Listen above to see how he did in this week's round on Greek and Latin civics terms.
The qualifying question for next time is this: When folks say freedom of speech is so important we made it our first amendment, they’re forgetting that it almost wasn’t. How many amendments to the constitution did James Madison propose to congress in 1789? And as a hint, it’s NOT ten.
If you think you know the answer, submit it here.
One listener with the correct answer will be randomly chosen to play on-air and win some spiffy Civics 101 swag. Good luck!
