Welcome to the thirty seventh in our series of weekly puzzles.
This week we have an unthemed puzzle from Radler.
In this puzzle I’ve attempted to include a few easier clues among the ones that I hope will provide more of a challenge. There’s no theme, and no unfamiliar words among the solutions. As an additional aid, the letters around the perimeter spell something having equivalent value to 20d, 21 and what the early 15 does.
