crossnerds - yes!

i would listen to rebecca and andy talk about anything at length, but especially crosswords - they bring both a great depth of analysis and a much-needed empathy to the discourse, all while being funny and delightful (the “cold opens” in particular always slay me).

Refreshing

I am looking forward to this podcast each week. It's refreshing to hear positive, insightful comments instead of NYT crossword bashing, which seems fashionable of late.
