Tell us about what your ordinary day looks like.
Erik works and takes care of his kid and pup, Rachel puzzles and takes care of a grunty.
How did you get into the world of puzzling?
We have both been puzzling on and off forever. The pandemic really set it in motion.
What makes you keep puzzling & how often do you puzzle?
We attempt to puzzle daily - and the amazing brands and artwork!
What is your favorite type of puzzles?
We are both up for any piece count - and almost any art style. We like a wonky shape but it’s not necessary.
During puzzling sessions, do you listen to anything or puzzle in silence?
Erik listens to music or podcasts, Rachel “watches” TV and movies.
If you were to describe what puzzling means to you, what would it be?
We both find calm and peace while puzzling - and the community has impacted us the most.
Tell us about your other interests & joys.
We love dogs - music - laughing, and spoonerizing things.
Do you have anything you want to share?
We love our silly little IG show - and can’t wait to see what else comes out of this stellar community.
How did you two start Buzzle Prunch Live Show on instagram?
Erik and I (Rachel) met on clubhouse, and started talking. A few other shows had premiered - and we thought we were entertaining enough to try our own show.
Erik had been live before - I hadn’t, no way I would have done the show without him. And we just wanted a place to hang out with our friends, and learn about all the puzzles, creators, artists and other puzzlers. We like to describe it as casually professional - and we will both continue with it as long as people keep showing up. Maybe even have a YouTube channel one day…
