The name of the person whose audio clip was used to reveal the correct Bluff the Listener story is Eva Wolchover; which, is the name of a former producer for Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!

All three choices for the third Not My Job question involved Dame Judy Dench. Another instance where all three of the correct choices were "B".

Maz Jobrani accepted Maeve Higgins' answer of "some kind of space company" as it included the word "space" for her fifth Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question. Maz also accepted Maeve's answer of the opposite of anti-depressant for her sixth Lightning question; where, the correct answer was erectile dysfunction pills.

Adam Burke answered his sixth Lightning question with "Aurora Borealis" and Maz initially didn't accept the answer by saying the correct answer was the "Northern Lights". Adam said that the Northern Lights are also known as the Aurora Borealis and Maz accepted the answer.
