  • Portable, enjoyable hands-free puzzles from NPR's Puzzlemaster Will Shortz and some special guests

    Hosted by Will Shortz with Liane Hansen

    Will Shortz believes that "we're living in the golden age of puzzles now . . . puzzles have never been better." He should know. Shortz has been crossword editor of The New York Times since 1993 and NPR's Puzzlemaster even longer, challenging Weekend Edition Sunday listeners with on-air puzzles since the program's start in 1987.

    This collection features Shortz and Weekend Edition Sunday host Liane Hansen in stimulating conversation, guiding listeners through puzzles filled with creative wordplay. Programs include the one before Shortz's appearance on The Simpsons (with prizes announced by Mr. Burns and Smithers, voiced by Harry Shearer), Hansen's birthday show (her children read the list of prizes), and two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks as a mystery guest who sticks around to help the delighted contestant.
