A.J. Jacobs ’90 has immersed himself in various worlds for the bestselling books he writes, including The Year of Living Biblically: One Man’s Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible. In his most recent book, The Puzzler: One Man’s Quest to Solve the Most Baffling Puzzles Ever, from Crosswords to Jigsaws to the Meaning of Life, he attempts to discover why people love puzzles, their effect on our brains, and how they connect us. That book inspired a new daily podcast, The Puzzler, launching this fall with iHeartMedia. With puzzle creator Greg Pliska, Jacobs will challenge celebrity guests and others to solve original brain-teasers. “I truly believe that puzzles and games unite us,” Jacobs was quoted as saying in the Hollywood Reporter. “There’s a huge community of puzzle-lovers out there, and I’m excited to entertain and befuddle them on a daily basis via audio.”
