This year marks the 75th anniversary of the New York Times crossword puzzle. Here at Says You! we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to highlight this milestone, especially as we took to the road for a visit to Indiana University. Will Shortz, crossed words with his academic colleagues and instituted his own novel major at Indiana University – yes, a degree in the study of puzzles will make you an academic enigmatologist. Listen in this week to our show from Indiana as we pay tribute to Will Shortz and to all lovers crosswords in a new round of celebrity voice overs.
Notice something familiar in the Sunday New York Times puzzle on August 2, 2015? It’s the clue for 15 down in the “Literally Speaking” crossword constructed by Matt Ginsberg: “___You!” Yes, that’s us.
