National Puzzle Radio

My Mystery Hunt teammate Dan Katz and I were recently interviewed for NPR's Weekend America, talking about why exactly it is that we spend one weekend a year in a classroom at MIT getting not enough sleep, eating poorly, and, oh yes, solving impossible puzzle after impossible puzzle. The audio is now up here (the player will automatically start at the correct point in the stream). It's a pretty good story, although devoted Hunters may have some quibbles or clarifications -- for instance, the elevator anecdote has been compressed, leaving out the part where the two teams negotiated a deal to take turns in the elevator. Also, am I really one of the "most devoted" hunters? I do attend every year...but so do a crapload of other people, and many for longer than I've been attending. Obviously I am one of the handsomest and most charming, but that's another thing entirely.

As these things go, that was a very nice piece indeed.

The interviewer sounded just enough like Dan to confuse me a bit at first.
