    "To puzz or not to puzz, that is the riddle." On today's episode, we ponder the work of the great bard Billy Shakes but guess what? We make it fun! All that and we take a tour of the greatest city in the world with some of the worst people on the planet, a rip-roaring re-telling of a spiritual touchstone, a gathering of some of the most famous scientific minds of their time, a dastardly villain with the worst possible intentions (and fashion sense), and a couple of young kids going through a hard time. This episode is a real douzy, but hey, it's #WiddleWednesday so what did you expect?

    Wow! It’s Wednesday! I hope you’re in the mood for listener submitted puzzles- because that’s what we’ve got. We also have a one man haunted house, an embarrassing pharmacy visit, and a dad who can’t change a tire. Erin also learns that Brett Michaels and Kid Rock are different people. Can’t wait to read some hey riddle riddle fan fiction( please don’t write it)!

    #116: Three Butlers Living in the Very Same House

    This episode has everything you could possibly want in an episode of Hey Riddle Riddle: an out-of-context cold open, new nicknames for the hosts, a segment about showering and an impromptu sitcom. Truly it's one for the ages. Oh, and it's also got a budding romance between an unlikely pair, two protectors standing up for the peasantry, pedantic conversation at a somber occasion, an enterprising author giving it his all, the sting of a job well done, a new boy in town and the homelife of the monarchy. Oh, and if you haven't already, make sure you grab tickets to our live streaming show on 10/13, you can buy tickets now!

    The Clue Crew is back with another unhealthy dose of riddle nonsense. This one's got everything: instant applause breaks, a Canadian Moses, Adal finally standing up for himself, JPC finally standing up for his nose, and Erin celebrating the turn of the leaves! All that plus a brand new segment that you're sure to enjoy. It must be #WiddleWednesday

So good

It slaps!

My bffs

Yeah, they don’t know me. Yeah, I’m still gonna call them my BFFs. I’m the quiet one who listens more than she talks. That’s all this is. I listen while they talk. And I laugh. Like, a lot. I go for walks and listen to this podcast and look like a big old good ball, I know it, because I’ve got my giant headphones on and I’m just walking along, randomly laughing out loud.

Anyway, this podcast is my favorite. My sunshine on a cloudy day. I downloaded the podcasts app just to rate them and give this review since I can’t do it on Spotify. Do yourself a favor and listen to it. Old man puzzles won’t disappoint.
