What's it like to write a crossword puzzle for the New York Times, and why does it matter? Co-constructors of Saturday's puzzle and frequent collaborators (and FRIENDS) Brooke Husic and Sid Sivakumar spill the crossbeans on:

  • Authorship in crosswords
  • The editorial process at the NYT
  • The joy of synchronized puzzling
  • Plus ever so much more!

Check out Brooke's and Sid's puzzles at Lollapuzzoola 13 (this Saturday, 8/15!) and on Sid's indie puzzle site, They're also active on crossword Twitter: @xandraladee and @sid_sivakumar.

Masks up, ducklings!
