How to Watch

"A philosopher of puzzles." The New York Magazine

The world’s only academically accredited puzzle master, Will Shortz has been crossword editor of The New York Times since 1993, where he's built a level of culture and solving skill unrivaled in the nation. Also an avid table tennis player, Shortz is the owner and director of the largest table tennis facility in the U.S. For A&L puzzle hounds and table tennis aficionados, he'll talk about the relationship between the two pursuits and answer your puzzle-related puzzlements, and he'll do it all from the tables of his famed Westchester Table Tennis Center.
