A fine Tuesday puzzle by Zachary David Levy, not too terribly difficult (as expected: Tuesdays are supposed to be on the easy-ish side), but still impressive, with a stately theme (that will seem hilarious once you've listened to today's episode) and a few answers that are just fun to say, such as 29A, Sticky stuff, GOOP; 1A, Bit of foolish mockery, JAPE; and 61A, Utopian locale in a Coleridge poem, XANADU.
In other news, we're announcing a new podcast segment - WYMA, Words You'll Meet Again. There are many clues/answers in the NYTimes pantheon of clues and answers that tend to crop up more than once, and they're just good to have in your back pocket when you're trying to be a keener crossword solver. So periodically we are going to just flag one of the answers in the grid we're talking about to be a WYMA word™️.
Remember when listening to the podcast, it may help to have the completed grid available, and if you weren't able to solve it, fear not! We always link to it in the show notes, as we are about to do right here.
We love listener mail! Drop us a line, email@example.com.
