This episode begins with Gina Marie singing "Squeeze Me." Then, Ethan reads an email from Gina about her adventures in Europe, which leads to an expensive musical gondola ride. Raw Press, our sponsor for the episode, requests Ethan to sing about juice, which he does. Ethan then plays a song about opium smoking (Limehouse Blues) and ends the episode with some Scott Joplin and some semi-investigative journalism about the all-powerful pineapple industry.

Ethan presents a program of puzzle songs from the 1920s and 30s with insights provided by special guest Will Shortz, editor of the NY Times Crossword. Vocalists Doug Bowles and Gina Marie sing "Cross Word Mama You Puzzle Me (But Papa's Gonna Figure You Out)," "Cross Words Between My Sweetie and Me," and more. Ethan also presents the first known recording of an Argentinian crossword song that loosely translates to the "Horizontal Tango."
