Date: September 16, 2020
In this episode of After12, we’re joined by celebrated crossword puzzle maker, Brendan Emmett Quigley. Since 1996, his puzzles have appeared in The New York Times, Boston Globe, and The Wall Street Journal, to name a few. He’s a regular contributor to The AV Crossword Club, and his puzzles have been mentioned on episodes of “The Colbert Report,” “Jeopardy!,” and “Sunday Night Football.” When he’s not making puzzles, he’s a member of the Boston Typewriter Orchestra—”a collective which engages in rhythmic typewriter manipulation combined with elements of performance, comedy and satire.” What’s a seven letter word for a fun episode?
