Few shout-outs to deliver this week, with one of our favourite setters – the man they call Anax – appearing in the Guardian blog for a lively Q&A. Worth catching, if only to appreciate how so many of his great clues arise from reworking & reworking. (And also the story about a Brimingham kitten.)
Second is in the same vein, with myself under the griller this time. A bunch of RMIT students invaded the Word Cave in September to make a mini-doco about the dark arts, and a 7-minute Cryptopia is the result. A chance to put faces to the amicable DA Trippers too – Antonios Sarhanis (AS) and Roderick Campbell (RC).
Last up, if you want to see or hear the meme-riddled schtick I recently gave at the Style Council debate, arguing that TV holds the greatest sway over language than any other media (a comic rave that many here helped to enrich), then try this ABC24 link, or the Radio National podcast. (Whichever stream floats your boat.)
