The Really Hard Edition

Hey, smarty pants: Revisit some of our trickiest games ever, and get ready to shout out the answers.

Our first ever Really Hard Edition revisits some of the trickiest games played on Ask Me Another. Yes, this episode is full of subjects known to put fear (or, for some, joy) into your hearts: philosophy, history, math. But fret not. We've put our own spin on them, and injected healthy doses of comedy, music, pop culture and puns. Amid these grueling rounds, get into the head of puzzle editor Art Chung, who reveals the process behind creating the show's games. Plus, how could we have a Really Hard Edition without anagrams from NPR's puzzlemaster, Will Shortz?
