This week's joint is by Rebecca Goldstein, with editing by Quiara Vasquez. It's called "Fake Meat," at 3.5/5 difficulty. Thanks to both Rebecca and Quiara for their amazing work!
Don't forget to check out the new AVCX/Defector crossword puzzle, a new offering for Defector subscribers. Defector is our partner as well as a kindred enterprise for their focus on giving writers and contributors control over their own damn published work. We appreciate that, and it's our priority, too. Their new puzzle feature is edited by Hoang-Kim Vu (who you know from the AV world) and Maitreyi Anantharaman (who is new on the scene, but taking it over).
