Fill Me In is a crossword podcast, or at least, that's what it pretends to be. Most of the time, it's about other things (including, but not limited to: soup, Thor, Rosana Ñler, Viewer Mail, Jonathan Papelbon, vuvuzelas, inappropriate glorification of the E Division, and much more), but occasionally, we also talk about crosswords.
 
Memory Gone Wild is an entertaining fun Podcast audio quiz program using a live radio style format that sharpens your listening skills and helps build your retention and recall capabilities. This is accomplished by the shows host Kenneth Campbell playing audio snippets from Best Selling Audiobooks and challenges you the listener, in a fun and entertaining way to respond to questions from what you just heard.
