Notes
The Bluff the Listener contestant initially chose Patton Oswalt's bluff story, but the audience reacted disapprovingly. After some nudging from Peter, the contestant changed her choice over to Adam Burke's story. During the Not My Job segment, Faith Salie asked Jeffery Tambor what his favorite book was. Jeffery decided to start eating something instead of answering the question, causing Patton asking Jeffery if he was eating. The Listener Limerick Challenge contestant is a distant relative to Abner Doubleday, who, in some circles, has been credited at one point (but refuted) with creating baseball.
