Last week's challenge: We're in the middle of a two-week, two-part challenge. You'll need to solve both parts in order to send in your answer.
Here's Part 1 from last week: These four words have a very interesting and unusual property in common. What is it?
Next week's challenge: Here's Part 2 of the challenge.
These four words have a very interesting and unusual property in common — something about the letters in them (all the letters). What is it? When you know it, think of a common 7-letter word that shares the unusual properties of both last week's and this week's words.
If you know the answer to next week's two-part challenge, submit it here. Listeners who submit correct answers win a chance to play the on-air puzzle. Important: Include a phone number where we can reach you Thursday, Aug. 16 at 3 p.m. ET.
