Caustic Cryptics

A lot of hyphens this time but that’s not our fault! Overall, this seems like an open goal, I know, but that’s never stopped us before.

Similar format to past CC’s. There is a direct connection between the odd-numbered clues. The even numbered clues are indirectly related to each other and the odd ones.
