    This was so good! Not sure if it was intentional or not but I liked how CONTINENTS
    22A CONTINENTSAntarctica and others
    called back to last month's contest, too.

      I noticed that as well!

            Fun puzzle! Not at all related to the theme, but something about SQUAREPEG
            8A SQUAREPEGPoor match for a round hole
            was just really satisfying. And I always enjoy a good pair of repetitive clues, so 8A
            8A SQUAREPEGPoor match for a round hole
            and 15A
            15A BANDNew Kids on the Block, for example
            were very clever.

              thanks! i really liked square peg too... first version of the puzzle had "courtesan" in that spot... then "square rod" but i deemed them too obscure/kinda boring... a shame that LEWES
              7D LEWESEarliest settlement in Delaware with the nickname "The First Town in The First State"
              is pretty obscure too but hopefully not a natick in that spot... i planted the LOAN/LIEN
              12A LIENMortgage, for example
              trap with "mortgage" just to be extra evil 😈
