Fill Me In is a crossword podcast, or at least, that's what it pretends to be. Most of the time, it's about other things (including, but not limited to: soup, Thor, Rosana Ñler, Viewer Mail, Jonathan Papelbon, vuvuzelas, inappropriate glorification of the E Division, and much more), but occasionally, we also talk about crosswords.

Like eavesdropping on a secret crossword club

Listening to Ryan and Brian as they pleasantly discuss the sometimes pedantic minutiae of crosswords is like eavesdropping on cool crossword cats that you could only dream of having as part of your local circle. Except, instead of eavesdropping, they’re inviting you in. And it feels special! I’ve only listened to five or six episodes so far, but already I love all the quirky little segments, the intros to which feel like inside jokes and which I feel privileged to witness, particularly Ryan’s snaps when opening/closing the viewer mail; the fact that it’s called “viewer” mail instead of listener mail; and the sea shanty and thunder track… Just delightful! In addition to being entertaining, I feel as if listening makes me a better solver and overall consumer of crossword (and other word) puzzles in general. Really glad I found this podcast!

The Seinfeld of crossword podcasts

Why isn't palindrome a palindrome? Who's to blame for the Dodgers 30-year World Series drought? Was Carol Channing robbed of her best shot at Oscar glory when passed over for the title roll of "Hello, Dolly!"? Are a lobster's pincers an octet or an octad? Brian and Ryan dare to ask the questions that keep you awake at night, and sometimes they even answer them. Join the hosts as they pop in and out of rabbit holes over clever repartee about the week in puzzles and rhythmic cinema banter.

Call me Bacon, 'cause I'm in the Club

When Brian and Ryan are riffing off one other, it's a delight. Is this podcast about crosswords? Maybe they'll meander over to that, but there's oh so much more.

If you want to
- find out why a hotdog and a pizza are essentially the same thing;
- learn a secret password; or
- listen to reviews referencing months old jokes;
then this is the pod for you!
