Most people have seen Cash Cab on Discovery Channel. The premise of the show being that passengers in a specially outfitted taxi are surprised and offered the chance to win money by correctly answering a series of general knowledge or trivia questions on the way to their destination.
In a town with less than one square mile of area, flagging a cab down could easily be mistaken for a wave (though, if you need a ride, Telluride offers several transportation services to come and pick you up). Thus comes the inception of The Gondola Game Show, Telluride's version of the popular trivia show.
Created by a group of local trivia junkies (the host Brent Hodgson also hosts trivia night at the Corner House every Monday night), this group of random knowledge geniuses offers prizes to gondola riding participants of gift certificates to restaurants and stores in town. Check-out their first four episodes below and make sure to keep up with them on their YouTube account!
