The second installment of our interview series. Live from the floor of the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament! (Apologies for the sound quality).
Special eps! This weekend, the Crossnerds went to the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, an incredible experience filled with amazing, brilliant, quirky constructors & solvers.
This first interview is with tournament CHAMP Erik Agard, conducted after puzzle 6.
