In 1985, an unnaturally beautiful and impossibly difficult puzzle was unleashed upon the world in the form of a picture book: MAZE, by Christopher Manson. Though greatly scrutinized, the book was little understood, and a contest to solve its central riddle was completed only upon distribution of explicit hints by the publisher. The bulk of the book remained mysterious.

In the early 2000s, fans of MAZE began to collect, compile, and share their insights. In the initial exchanges of information, much was learned, but not much was solved through further collaboration. Within a few years the dust had settled again, and MAZE was still almost entirely inexplicable.

Now, a second resurgence of MAZE interest has begun to bear fruit. In this podcast, the first in a series about MAZE, we discuss what MAZE is, why it is gaining attention again, and why it is worth your time to join us in solving it.
