This was my first one but since listening and falling in love with it I’ve subscribed to a few others. I really don’t know how I started to listen but I normally wouldn’t. I mean who wants to listen to someone read a crossword but this show isn’t just for puzzlers. After giving the weekly brief of cultural happenings in the crossword world (say that ten times fast) then each of the hosts presents trivia on a topic they’ve researched. Often during the weekly brief, they will call out clues or answers that are outdated or bluntly sexist or racist (it’s not long and I think it’s cool they do it). They often explain the etymology behind some of the puzzles, and it leads to their topical discussions. 51 episodes about an hour apiece with new ones coming out usually Sunday or Monday. I listened to and fell in love with 49 - Crimes & Tattoos, 25 - Diamonds Are 5ever, and 24 - Unidentified Fanged Objects. 48 ratings on Itunes and all of them are 5 stars (the only times I’ve ever seen it while doing this) and loosely scripted (like Morbid).
