The Enigmatic DA

Produced by Lawrence Leung

From an early age, David Astle couldn’t read a street sign without seeing anagrams. Decades later, he has become the faceless nemesis who frustrates tens of thousands of people every week. His opponents simply know him as “DA” the cryptic crossword maker for The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald. Lawrence Leung brings us this story, originally broadcast on Melbourne’s 3RRR.
