Description
Best of Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! featuring favorite interviews and segments from 2018
Notes
The Bluff the Listener segment came from the 2018-12-07 live taping at Carnegie Hall in New York City, New York. Since that show did not air as a regular Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! show, I have noted the chosen and correct bluff information for this show.

Notes
When asked how Conan O'Brien did on the show, Bill Kurtis said that he would throw the score out because anything Conan says is right. Mo Rocca really pulled a Mo Rocca during the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round when trying to come up with an answer for the 5th question. Alonzo Bodden would also try to pull a Mo Rocca for his second Lightning question. Peter Sagal also accepted Alonzo's answer of "collusion" for his first Lightning question. Only five of Alonzo's eight Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions were included in the edited version of the show and Bill stated that Alonzo had three points. One of the three points would have been in one of the three questions that was cut out.
