Week in Review; Who's Carl This Time?; Not My Job about appropriate musical cues for news stories; Listener Limerick Challenge; Week in Review; Listener Bluff about how a news organization got fooled; Who's Carl This Time? #2; Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank; Predicting Next Week's Headlines

For the Listener Bluff segment, the listener contestant chose Charlie Pierce's story, which was correct. The story was related to the Not My Job questions that they had asked Kevin Klose, which the film name translations and story were a hoax.

Including the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question that Peter Sagal asked Charlie when the gong sound was played, Charlie was asked nine questions. The current standard for Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank is that each panelist is asked eight questions.
