On the Mix Morning Rush we love to play our game "Truth or Trash" in which we pair up two listeners and see which one can get the most questions correct while going back and forth!

Because today is Friday the 13th we made all the questions related to it! Here are some of the questions we used in today's game, plus the ones we didn't get to!
