There and Back Again Again: Now With Harder Trivia! by Tortoise

Quiz Description

My first attempt at a "fully palindromic" quiz skewed easy; I was approaching it more from the "puzzle" side than the "trivia" side. This time I'm aiming for harder questions; we shall see if I succeed at this endeavor. Again, the correct responses will form a single palindromic string. Some questions may allow for multiple phrasings or spellings, but only spellings that fit the global palindrome will be accepted.
