I love challenges!
This podcast intimidates my mind every Sunday! I could never miss a week of this. I don't send in answers (I'm always wrong) I just love listening to this. I am able to get the Sunday Puzzle on my local NPR station, but podcasts are so much more enjoyable!
Another example of NPR's finest...
I am such a NPR geek. Seriously, I get ten plus podcasts for my iPod. I'm only 15! Anyway, this is a brilliant podcast. I really enjoy racking my brain to solve Will's puzzles. He is pure genius! Get this podcast!!!
Sunday Puzzle on podcast is fantastic !
It is so much easier to listen to the NPR Sunday Puzzle on my terms, i.e., when it's convenient to my schedule ! Great addition to a fabulous show.
