The show was recorded remotely.

Peter Sagal gave a sidenote before the start of the Not My Job segment stating that it was recorded before the news that President Trump had been infected by COVID-19.

Even though Dame Karen Pierce only answered one question correct, Bill Kurtis gave her all 3 points. Peter said that it was a form of diplomatic immunity.

In the version of the show that I pulled from NPR's podcast feed, Jessi Klein's answer to her 8th Lightning round question wasn't heard in the edited version of the show. It went from Peter asking the question, the round-ending gong sound, and then Peter Sagal saying "No, a free grave".

NPR sent out a message to member stations stating that a new audio segment was posted to their portal to corrected the above issue. Hat tip to Gregg Porter at KUOW for providing an update on this.
