Crossnerds is the world's best—er, nerdiest—crossword puzzle podcast. It is about the New York Times crossword puzzle, words, wordplay, and the whole weird, wild cruciuniverse. Also: other things. Like things that are funny. Celebrities, including sled dogs. Advertising from the 1860s. Etc. New episodes released weekly. (Sometimes.)
