Speaker: John Maietta  
Topic: PA Trivia     

Test your knowledge of Pennsylvania trivia, as we explore a wealth of fascinating facts from state history, popular culture, and current events.  You’ll learn about George Washington’s only battlefield surrender – and the development of the world’s first electronic computer.  You’ll hear the stories behind the druggist who helped Mozart write his greatest comic operas; the hapless tinkerer who almost invented the telephone; and the exiled Turkish imam who runs a worldwide spiritual movement from a hideout in the Poconos.  And you’ll find out why Pennsylvania can proudly lay claim to America’s first gas station, its oldest human settlement, its longest stone arch bridge, and its biggest shoe.  You’ll leave with a new appreciation for the wacky, wild, and wonderful side of the great Keystone State we call home.
