Manage episode 355135425 series 2927391
A super Saturday crossword by the NYTimes Spelling Bee editor, Sam Ezersky, who occasionally wanders over into the crossword section to work his magic. And he did so today, with some nicely worded clues and juicy juxtapositions. We enjoyed the rarely seen 58D, Like swampland, MIRY (if you say so!); 5D and 23A, both "Ah", follower, respectively ISEE and CHOO (very twee); 61D, End of a series, in Canada, ZED (❤️🇨🇦); and the educational 50D, Where "talon" and "toga" mean "hello" and "goodbye", SAMOA (manaia ia!)
Today's also Saturday, and our JAMCOTWA winner is ... oops, no spoilers! Download and listen up to today's podcast to find out who, why, and how much swag they're likely to get!
