Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a science scandal in the news, Not My Job about seagulls and tote bags, Listener Limerick Challenge, Scorekeeper Predictions: what will be the big story on our 40th anniversary show?

This show is the special 20th anniversary show that was recorded at The Chicago Theatre in downtown Chicago, Illinois and featured a rotating set of panels throughout the show.

For the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment, the panelists were split into three teams and had Paula Poundstone, Maz Jobrani and Brian Babylon as team captains. Although each panelist on each team got to answer one question during that segment, the score was aggregated at the team level. Since this is not a standard method for scoring, I have assigned the announced score and ranking to the team captain.

More detail about each panelist's performance on the show will be published at blog.wwdt.me
