Notes
Helen Hong's Bluff the Listener story involved people seeing public radio hosts in person for the first time, including those that came to see Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! and were shocked at how Peter Sagal and the panel looked versus what people's own mental image of them looked like. The listener contestant said that she had recently looked at a picture of Peter Sagal and was shocked. Peter asked her what she thought he looked like.
