It’s a Living

I have a new addition to my modest press portfolio. Yesterday (April 22) I appeared on local talk radio show. I was a guest on Mandy Connell’s “It’s a Living” segment and chatted with Mandy about my job at Puzzah! and puzzlemaking in general. You can listen to the interview here. Note that you may need to provide social media credentials to access the clip. Also, Mandy and I do not discuss politics during my segment.

AUTOFILL PROJECT: Zootopia

NOTES: I haven’t seen Zootopia (70) yet but I glanced at IMDb to see the cast and noticed some useful names among the characters: Chief Bogo, Yax, Stu Hopps. Another useful name of animated character that I only discovered recently is Aang (50) from Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender. I’ve been “marking as read” large swaths of A.V. Club RSS feed posts because I haven’t had time to read them, but when I do have a chance to go through the entertainment news I can find some good Notepad additions. I jokingly wrote down Boaty McBoatface (72), the result of a group of U.K. scientists using an Internet poll to name a new research vessel. I don’t think the name will be made official (for the boat or the crossword database) despite its overwhelming popularity by voters, but the name would be a fun 15-letter seed if it sticks.

No sharedoc lists this time. Good luck to those competing in Stamford at the American College Puzzle Tournament this weekend!
