Hey Anthony Kiedes, put a sock on this! I'm a Red Hot Billy Pepper
Chosen: Roxanne Roberts
Correct: Paula Poundstone
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a film currently in production that could win next year's Academy Award for Best Picture, Not My Job about Skee-Ball, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the big news to come out of the Oscars?

The show started with Peter mentioning and playing a segment in which Paula Poundstone made a snarky comment about cross-country skiing. This week's Not My Job guest is Jessie Diggins, who won the first Olympic cross-country skiing gold medal for the United States in 2018 at Pyeongchang.

During the introduction of the Not My Job segment, Peter Sagal said "Pyongyang" instead of "Pyeongchang". All three of the choices for the third Not My Job question were correct.

During the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment, Paula Poundstone couldn't think of the name Spotify, but got help from the audience. Roxanne Roberts couldn't completely remember Martin Shkreli's last name but got enough of it correct that Peter accepted it. When Roxanne didn't answer enough questions to win the game, making Luke Burbank the winner, the audience started chanting "Luuuuuuke" with the help of Bill Kurtis.
