Notes
Peter made a note about Maz Jobrani's use of an Indian accent during Maz's bluff in that the staff should be prepared for a wave of listener letters. Maz noted that he even toned down his accent. Maz asked if he could attempt an accent during the Listener Limerick Challenge round. The "Guess the Newsmaker" segment made its return to the show after a long hiatus.
