Best known as Mr Dictionary on SBS, and DA in the world of crosswords, David Astle is a full-time word nerd. Even growing up, he mixed and mangled every name he found. But thankfully in his 20s he found puzzles as way to channel his talents. Under the guise of DA, David also composes such diverse puzzles as Wordwit, Omega and Radar Trap for Fairfax, Rubicon for Australian Style, as well as writing the weekly column Wordplay for Saturday Spectrum in the SMH. David will go though a crytic crossword over lunch, and tell us anecdotes of famous crosswords through the world
