#35 - Mark & Simon from Cracking the Cryptic on Elite Puzzle Solving
Play • 55 min

Joining me this week for our first podcast with two guests, Mark Goodliffe and Simon Anthony, the two creators behind the “Cracking the Cryptic” YouTube channel. This episode is about elite puzzle-solving and before you think, “Ah, I don’t know if that's for me” - just wait until you learn more about their story.

Mark is a qualified chartered accountant from the UK and has won The Times Crossword Challenge so frequently that he is now in the Guinness Book of Records.

Simon has an economics degree from Cambridge and was a pretty good golfer before he realized he didn't want to go professional. Simon runs the YouTube channel, Cracking the Cryptic with Mark. They have both represented the United Kingdom at World Sudoku and World Puzzle Championships, with Mark reigning as the UK Sudoku champion.

What's truly remarkable about what these two gentlemen have created, is a channel in which you can experience catharsis from watching them solve beautifully elegant puzzles that resolve in ways that mimic nature, and the mathematics they're in.

Please enjoy!
