It may not answer the question in its entirety and certainly no six-minute piece can fully capture the experience that is KVSC Trivia, but this is close.
In 2008, WCCO produced this story, trying their hand at explaining the phenomenon.
In another attempt to answer the question, in 2011 a SCSU student created the following piece for a documentary class.
