A delightful Friday crossword by Barbara Lin, with a bevy of very twee clues. Jean's favorite was 1A, Finishing-line cry?, BINGO, and Mike's was 47D, Edges of a diamond?, DEES: but both found gems -- and not just SARD* -- throughout the grid. *as discussed in yesterday and today's episodes!

Today's crossword is a victory for STEM education, as the NYTimes crossword managed to get millions (?) of its solvers thinking about the problem of DARKMATTER. There were a few notable clues, the most prominent of which is the aforementioned 51A, Orangish-brown gem, SARD. That almost sounds like a debut, but in fact it has appeared a whopping 154 …
 
A very TWEE theme in today's crossword, involving TRACTORBEAMS. Both Jean and Mike were primed to see ENTERPRISE in the grid, but the constructor of today's fine piece, Dan Caprera, had other ideas and designs, so there were absolutely no United Federation of Planet vessels anywhere in the grid (unless, of course, they had deployed a cloaking devic…
 
A fabulous Tuesday crossword, which we knew it would be as soon as we saw the constructor's name - Erik Agard. The theme was fine, and of particular benefit to MARIAHCAREY fans. But even if you weren't thoroughly acquainted with her back catalog, the clues and crosses made this not just doable, but a treat (and not just because of the literal one, …
 
This was, as cruciverbalists like to say, a slightly crunchier than usual Monday crossword, but an entertaining one just the same, with an amusing theme was hard to miss - in fact, it will probably hit you RIGHTBETWEENTHEEEYES. Deets are inside (including a discussion of deets!), so download, listen up, and enjoy! Remember, if you like this podcast…
 
An excellent Sunday crossword, and a debut to boot, for Rich Katz. He has a dozen, yes, a dozen, amazing and amusing clues guaranteed to bring a smile to your lips. He even managed to get a reference to the QB for the KC Chiefs (playing on the same day in a semifinal): now that's attention to detail! Definitely 5 squares on the JAMCR scale, and to …
 
A great Saturday crossword by Kevin Christian, with some absolutely terrific clues, such as 24A, Something that isn't assumed, REALNAME (aah); 47D, Square things, ATONE (ooh); and 13D, His 2016 debut album unseated "Thriller" for the most weeks spent in the top 10 on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hot chart (77), POSTMALONE (huh!). And the latter might not be…
 
It was one of those Friday crosswords - easy if you're in the right demographic, a bit more of a struggle if you are not. Both co-hosts had to dig in places, and Mike was particularly hard pressed because of his ignorance of anything that occurred more recently than 1815. So, the key question: did our intrepid co-hosts succeed? The answer is as clo…
 
A scene that is common in every Mario Game I played with my boys is the contest with the boss. To get to the next level, you have to fight the boss. At the end, there is a big boss you have to defeat. Each arena is different. They get more and more grandiose as you go up the levels. More and more intense. Think of other places where great contests …
 
Once again we must doff our hats to the constructors of today's masterpiece, Dan Ziring and Quiara Vasquez, for having bestowed upon us a brilliant puzzle, with clues so sharp you could slice bread with them, and a theme so brilliant that it glows in the dark. OK, perhaps we are guilty of a bit of hyperbole, but not much - and if you need proof, ju…
 
A wonderful Wednesday crossword by Nancy Serrano-Wu, with some fascinating clues such as 1A, Composer of the piano piece played in the "Tom and Jerry" short "The Cat Concerto", LISZT (a hoot to watch); 4D, ________ suit, ZOOT (try saying that 3 times fast!); and 56A, Sports bar purchases?, TRIPLEDOUBLES (yes, that is a thing!). A few highlights fro…
 
A very effervescent Tuesday crossword by Aaron M. Rosenberg and the indefatigable Jeff Chen (he of xwordinfo.com fame). We don't want to spill the TEA, so to speak, but this was one fine crossword. We also have a winner in our Triplet Tuesday Contest (yay!), so to find out who walked away with the trophy, as well as hear our usual 4-dimensional-che…
 
The only thing MEH about today's crossword was the presence of MEH in the grid (20D, Passable, at best) -- otherwise, it was filled with LEVITY (59A, Lack of seriousness about a serious situation) and worthy of at least one HURRAH (60A, "Yay!"), possibly more. All the DEETS (61A, Juicy bits of info) are inside, just as close as your download and pl…
 
Although the title of today's crossword was With Ease, that's not how your intrepid cohosts solved it: rather, the clue for 19A, My ________ (You're never gonna get it), 1992 hit by En Vogue, seemed a more accurate premonition as as they both (solving independently, as always) flailed around in the top-left corner. But fortunately, diving into thei…
 
A challenging Saturday crossword -- Jean had an epic struggle in the north central area of the grid, and Mike had an epic struggle ... everywhere! But along the way we were able to appreciate such fine vintage clues as 12D, Earring Magic ______ (1990s doll that developed a cult following), KEN; 52A, Web portal released the same day as Windows 95, M…
 
A fine Friday crossword by Robert S. Greenfield, not too difficult for a Friday, but still festooned with fun clues and answers (which we like to call cluans™️), such as 34A, Neologize, COINAPHRASE (for an example, c.f. cluans 😀); 29A, Organization with a strong track record?, NASCSAR (nice!); and 23D, Splashy display, ECLAT (sounds like a SAT word…
 
A deliciously devious Thursday crossword by Daniel Bodily, thanks to Friday and Saturday level cluing and a theme that may leave you AGASP (and if you solve today's puzzle, saying AAH). Definitely a full 5 squares on the JAMCR scale, and while it fills us with trepidation contemplating what lies ahead for the rest of the week, we will savor this pu…
 
A wonderful Wednesday crossword, and a debut for constructor Lindsay McBride (kudos and all that!). We especially enjoyed 67A, Like matryoshka dolls, NESTED (we just like to say matryoshka); 32D, Good, in Chinese HAO (now we know!); and 24D, "_________ Flux" (1990s animated sci-fi series), AEON (because it was such a great show!). There was (much) …
 
A fine Tuesday crossword, with a bilingual theme -- the best kind -- as well as some amusing clues (9D, Phrase sung 36 times in a 1970 Beatles hit, LETITBE; 6D, Bovine:cow::corvine:__________, CROW; and Mike's favorite word of the day, 26A, "Aw, rats", DAGNABBIT.

But imagine what 5 apples would do if they all worked together. Talk to us! twitter: https://twitter.…
 
A slightly more intense Monday crossword than usual, with several span-the-grid answers, but the cute theme (the constructor, Michael Paleos, definitely did not MAILITIN) made it all worthwhile. We've got all the deets inside, as well as the full set of rules for tomorrow's first ever Triplet Tuesday Contest, so you are cordially invited to -- in o…
 
If you like literature, you'll love today's crossword, teeming with literary references, all in the cause of a fun theme.

We have all the deets inside, waiting for you to enjoy. Also,…
 
A straightforward Saturday puzzle, but it pegged the Fun Quotient meter so we will not complain. Au contraire, most of today's episode is spent singing its praises, for the clues are crisp, cute (but not TWEE!), and, oh, WHATCHAMACALLIT, compelling. Deets inside! Also, it's Saturday, time for our JAMCOTWA (Jean And Mike Crossword Of The Week Award)…
 
Typically Friday crosswords do not have a theme, but since this was Friday the 13th, the editors (luckily) decided to take advantage of that day. Unlike some themes that only make sense after one has finished the puzzle, today's theme genuinely was useful (as well as fun). So, bypass that ladder, jump over that crack, don't trip on that black cat, …
 
A GEM of a Thursday crossword by Grant Thackray, who does some remarkable linguistic surgery, all for a good cause - a dizzying and dizzyingly good theme, in the middle of a grid-full of great clues.

Just wait until the minutes tick by and your mind might change. The loud screech of a cuckoo bird is music to my ears. alk to us! twitter: https://twitter.com/thegoodevegir…
 
It's not clear if the authors, Andrea Carla Michaels and Kevin Christian, were in the midst of a raging snowstorm when they constructed this crossword, but 9A, How revenge (or pizza) is best served, COLD, 21D, Frozen, GELID, 57A, Behaved in a laid back way, ACTEDCOOL, and 34D, "Rocks" that clink in a glass, ICE, really make us. think that that migh…
 
A slightly GNARLY Sunday crossword: Jean, we have it on good authority, tore through this in no time flat, but Mike, due to his almost total lack of knowledge of pop culture (anything more recent than 1850), to say nothing of his woeful ignorance of Spanish, found the road a little less SEDATE. Deets inside, so download now and beat the rush. Conta…

Today's crossword was just bursting at the seams with tricky clues: it seemed like the entire top of the grid was roped off with GIVEITUPYOUDONTHAVEACHANCE tape, but thanks to perseverance, grit, and in Jean's case a functional memory, in Mike's case a large dollop of good luck, both were able to persevere. In today's episode we also have a yummy f…
 
A highly educational Thursday crossword. Clues like 16A, Smallest South Pacific nation, NAURU; 1D, The flowers in Amy Lowell's "Your great puffs of flowers / Are everywhere in this my New England"; and 31D, Agricultural item that Nigeria produces more of than the rest of the world combined, YAM; were certainly eye-openers for your co-hosts. One of …
 
For those of you who remember where you were when the James Webb Space Telescope finally deployed, the NYTimes has you covered, with a great, astronomy-themed puzzle. But even if you're not a space-nerd, there was a galaxy of fabulous clues, such as 27A, Dispenser of drafts, TAP (cute!), 43A, "The lowest form of humor -- when you don't think of it …
 
Transitions - Journey to Maturity as the Body of Christ - Nomination of Elders and Deacons If you like any type of gardening or cultivating, planting is involved at one point in time or another. If you buy a small plant, eventually, you have to transition it to a bigger pot. If you buy a tree, you have to plant it somewhere in your yard. Plants are…
 
A fine Tuesday puzzle by Margaret Seikel, with a straightforward theme and not too much pop culture. It helped slightly to be acquainted with The Princess Diaries, so, advantage Jean. Mike only had one gimme, 46D, Lex of "Superman", LUTHOR, counterbalanced by the curious 41D, "Should we bounce?", WANNAGO, and the overwhelming urge to spell 11D, Ita…
 
A hilarious (and we use that term very rarely) theme by Seth Bisen-Hersh in their debut NYTimes crossword appearance, a great start. We won't spoil the joke by telling it here, but the entire crossword is a setup, and the payoff is exquisite. Details within, so you know the drill: subscribe (if you don't already), download, listen up and enjoy! Con…

How do you measure greatness? I am sure each of you strives for something you may consider greatness. Or perhaps you strive after someone else idea of greatness, which tends to affect your self-confidence. Is greatness something we can measure universally? What makes someone truly great in the eyes of others, regardless of our ideas, beliefs, or co…
 
Brendan Emmett Quigley has crafted an elegantly enjoyable Friday crossword -- clues that are brilliant (54A, One who is mean as the Dickens?, SCROOGE), enlightening (15A, Whom the New York Times co-named athlete of the year, with Babe Ruth, in 1920), MANOWAR, and impossible to spell (21A, Missed-the-turn maneuver, UEY). We liked this crossword ATON…

A challenging but fair Christmas Eve crossword, with 2 full width, and 2 full height answers that were reasonably familiar, although the clues that led to those answers suitably cryptic (e.g., 57A, Symphony originally dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte, BEETHOVENSTHIRD, and 2D, Revenue source for a Girl Scout troop, DOORTODOORSALES). Jean tore through…
