But those of us who revel in the singular satisfaction of filling in the final square know the joys of crosswords aren’t fleeting. They have, after all, been a daily ritual for millions for over a century. Join Adrienne Raphel, author of Thinking Inside the Box for a lively conversation about where crosswords came from, how they’re built, and why we can’t get enough.
