Ahhh, Great Minds Think Alike. From the cluing I thought there was going to be some more pun-age going on, but nope, just two people who had a good idea (Team Leibniz all the way, btw).
The puzzle felt too easy for a Wednesday (sub 7 seems too fast!), but I think a lot of that had to do with the fill being so straightforward and filling up ~15% of the puzzle. Once those answers were in it was easy to get many of the crosses that weren't immediately obvious - GMC, AINGE, etc. Very little crossword-ese as well which was a nice surprise, aside from AMP and APB, the three and four letter words felt very fresh.
