Description
Who's Carl This Time?, Bluff the Listener about dangers faced by teenage girls, Not My Job about the classic trail mix called gorp, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what other animals have secret lives?
Notes
In the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Maz Jobrani answered six questions correctly (Peter said right, yes or correct six times and there were six dings), but Carl stated that Maz only had answered five correctly. Even the show's transcript lists six "(SOUNDBITE OF BELL)" for Maz. The correct score breakdown should have been: 3 / 6 / 15, not the 3 / 5 / 13 as noted by the show. If the points had been tallied correctly for Maz, Maz and Amy would have been tied for first.
