Fill Me In

Sep 13, 2022

Don't tell Ryan, but this week, Rachel Fabi and Neville Fogarty break into the studio and coerce Brian into the longest episode of Fill Me In ever! And to make it even stranger, it has more puzzle content than usual ... and a lot of it is about cryptic crosswords!

Neville gives a master class on cryptics at about the 44-minute mark, and the all-cryptic-crossword Thunder Round starts about 72 minutes in. The rest? Some Viewer Mail, some musical theater, very little baseball, and perhaps more laughter than you're accustomed to hearing on this show.

The cryptics of this week's Thunder Round are (some of these require paid subscriptions):

Go solve them first if you don't want to be spoiled by the Thunder Round.
