      If I confused you, I’m sorry. I really misread the clue to start.

        Yeah, LOL, when I first woke up, I saw that “pub.” abbreviation and was like huh? But then I read the category title. At the top of the recap, I spelled out “publishers” the way they showed it on the screen while the players were writing down their responses.

          That would have helped.
          When I would feel like simulating the game, I would look at the category and ponder for a minute before giving myself 22 seconds to solve.

      Leena, Alex said at the beginning of the show that Claudia received a job offer that was way too good to turn down, so she had to leave. Alex did say they would bring her back at some point in the future.

    VJ, it did not become Penguin Random House until the 2 companies merged in 2013. Prior to that it was just Random House and traded on the stock market under the R. H. name only. I don’t know why they have on their website that in 1927 it was Penguin Random House.
