Very Puzzling: A Chat with Will Shortz

He’s the world’s only known enigmatologist – a degree program he invented himself – and he’s been editing crossword puzzles for the New York Times since 1993. He’s responsible for the Sunday Puzzler on NPR’s Weekend Edition, and was the subject of the 2006 documentary “Wordplay.” He’s in town for the IdeaFestival but will be our guest this Thursday, when we’ll be broadcasting live from the event’s lobby. So grab a 6-letter word for writing implement and get ready for a 12-letter word for chat, with puzzle master Will Shortz. Listen to the Show
