Notes
All three panelists have a first name that starts with the letter 'A'. The last time that happened was back in 2004-09-04 with Roy Blount Jr., Roxanne Roberts and Richard Roeper on the panel. Each of the three Listener Limerick Challenge answers were either "pit" or "Pitt". The Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round ended with a series of pee jokes in response to Adam Felber's last question of the (edited) round.

Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about an obscure automotive scandal, Not My Job about matchmaking, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the next surprising revelation from the Panama Papers?
Notes
Paula Poundstone's bluff included a mention of Peter "Segal" of "Wait Wait... Why Do I Care?" and studies. For the Paula's last question of the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Paula answered "dog and dead", though the correct answer was "cat and dead". With some pressure, Bill Kurtis accepted Paula's answer. For one of Tom Bodett's Lightning round questions, Tom answered with "Pfiffer" while the correct answer was "Pfizer". Peter Sagal said it was close enough and accepted the answer.
