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, sandwiches, Stephen Sondheim, Viewer Mail, vuvuzelas, inappropriate glorification of the E Division, and more), but occasionally, we also talk about crosswords.

    This week, Ryan and Brian arbitrarily launch Season 7 of "Fill Me In" with a visit from Ben "The Barnacle" Zimmer. Topics include vowel omissions, puzzle pain, and a potential new arc for the show. There's a new contest crossword at https://bit.ly/fmi311con, and we expect to be streaming again on Saturday (4 PT/7 ET) at https://twitch.tv/nextdoorcomics.
