At the end of the quiz, you’ll be able to compare your score with that of the average contestant, as well as with the score of a Slatester who has agreed to take the quiz on the record. This week’s contestant is associate editor and the editor of Outward J. Bryan Lowder. He also co-hosts the Outward podcast.
