Nickelodeon GUTS Referee Moira "Mo" Quirk: A Conversation With Your Childhood Crush

Back in the early '90s, Moira "Mo" Quirk inspired legions of kids to take up athletic pursuits as the co-host and referee of Nickelodeon's GUTS, a game show pitting kids against each other with feats of extreme athletic prowess (well, extreme for kids, anyway). The most memorable part of the show was when kids would scale a massive, glowing mountain, the Aggro Crag, in the search for ultimate supremacy and a trip to Space Camp. Ah, Space Camp.

After GUTS fame, Mo fell off our radar--until now. Quirk called in to local Miami comedy and pop culture podcast Quarter Life Crisis and told them what she's been up to since her Nickelodeon days, including web series and voice acting in video games. Catch up with Mo after the jump.
