Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

Chandi and Enrique bring us "Pardon The Interruption" this week, at 18x18 (maybe the first time we've ever run that exact size?) and 3/5 difficulty. Super-tough 5/5 puzzle coming next week from the Classic, heads up!

Some words from the constructors: "Chandi proposed this crossword theme idea during a mini crossword summit she and Enrique had on the roof of their lexicographer friend Jane Solomon's apartment building. The setting felt appropriate for the amount of wordplay they both lovingly laced throughout this puzzle's theme and fill. They hope you enjoy it!"
