    What are your favorite podcasts?

    That seems like a great idea. I don't have any standout way of finding new podcasts, it's often as not from going through the "best of year" reviews.

    3x3x5 Tower Cuboid Edge Swap/Parity

    I'm sorry, but I can't follow the above - can you elaborate? It seems like you must be holding the puzzle with a 3x3 face as F, but I've tried it on a physical 3x3x5 and it doesn't work. The way I read it, the part I've bolded above doesn't do anything. I've never seen this position, and I'm...
