Take a gulp of me and I'll give you wings. I'm Red Bill
Chosen: Amy Dickinson
Correct: Amy Dickinson
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about changes in the game of golf, Not My Job about people not stopping at stop lights or signs, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the next altered image in the news?

This is the third regular show to air that has an all women panel. The previous two shows were 2015-09-12 with Faith Salie, Roxanne Roberts and Paula Poundstone, and 2017-06-10 show with Paula Poundstone, Faith Salie and Tracy Clayton. With that, Paula has been part of all three shows with an all women panel.

For the Mary Wilson's first Not My Job question, Amy Dickinson provided a little bit of assistance to nudge Mary towards the correct answer. For the second question, the audience yelled out a mix of answers that were a mix of "B" and "C", with the latter being more prominent. Each of the three questions had one choice that involved a horse; which, Mary asked what that was all about.

Amy answered her third Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question with "export bill" while trying to come up with "extradition bill". Amy was given the point. For Amy's eighth Lightning question, she initially answered "toddler"; but, then Paula said that it was close and Amy changed her answer to "dog". There was a bell ding given but Amy, nor Paula, were credited with the point. The score listed for this show is based on what was announced by Bill Kurtis.

Tom Papa tripped over Philipp Goedicke and Ian Chillag's name while reading the credits.
