👋🤓🎙 Live from Berlin and a Dalíesque sea of toilets: Rebecca and Brooke review the week of 9/12/22 - 9/18/22 in New York Times crossword puzzles, covering such topics as:

  • "Noted" in crossword clues
  • The world's kickiest animals
  • Triple-checked squares
  • Does Europe have Daylight Savings Time?
  • Green paint
  • "Representation Without Transformation" (h/t Sally Hoelscher's USATXW blog)
  • Wacky Wednesdays
  • Where difficulty comes from (misdirects, vagueness)
