Description
Who's Carl This Time?, Bluff the Listener about how "Sex and The City" still holds influence today, Not My Job about the sport of partridge shooting, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what are the unexpected benefits of the government shutdown?
Notes
Maz Jobrani answered six Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions correctly (including the last one in which Maz's answer of "(David) Cameron's cat" was accepted by Peter Sagal and a bell ding given). Carl stated that Maz had only answered five questions correct. This will not Maz's first run-in with an incorrect answer/point count, as it also happened on the 2012-06-12 show. Unlike the outcome of 2012-06-16's show, Maz would have still come in third place with the correct score count.

Description
Who's Carl This Time?, Bluff the Listener about an old joke coming to life, Not My Job about three of the most terrible products brought to market, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will President Obama pitch on TV after his presidency is over?
Notes
In the radio/podcast version of the show, Mo's edited Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank only had him answering 4 out of 6 questions correctly; even though, Carl stated that Mo answered 6 correctly at the end of the round. That meant that Mo had to have answered the two other (unaired) questions correct.
