Puzzlemaster, solve thyself

Although best known as a friend of this blog, Will Shortz is also the puzzle editor of the New York Times and the puzzlemaster of NPR Weekend Edition Sunday.

But he's not the only FOBB&B working as a public radio quiz show host in the American Northeast. Mike Nothnagel, math professor extraordinaire and constructor of some of the most elegant crosswords in the NYT, hosts his own puzzle segment entitled "Any Questions?" on station WAMC.

It was probably inevitable that Mike would put Will in the hot seat, as he did a few weeks ago. Just as inevitably, Will passed the puzzle test with flying colors.

You can listen to Will and Mike on "Any Questions?" here.
