Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a scream in the news, Not My Job about scale models, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what debate demands will the Democratic presidential candidates make?
Notes
Bill Kurtis almost said the full answer for the third limerick, but stopped himself after saying the first part of the word. The listener did have the correct answer and Bill took the credit for the third limerick when he announced how many the listener got correct. At the end of the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Bill Kurtis stated that it was the first time that the round ended in a three-way tie under his watch. In fact, there have previously been two shows that ended with panelists being in a three-way tie with Bill Kurtis as scorekeeper (2012-08-18, which Paula Poundstone was one of the panelists, and 2014-09-06).

Description
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about selfies going something good for once, Not My Job about physical education, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the next surprising bit of health news?
Notes
During the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Faith Salie provided an answer of "Katie Perry songs" for her second question of the round. Initially, Peter and Bill didn't give her a point, but did so after Faith listed the other songs that were in fact used and Peter was corrected. In the edited version of the show, Faith was asked five of the eight questions and her fifth correct answer would have come from one of the three questions that were cut out.
