Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a new way to celebrate one's upcoming nuptials, Not My Job about monks and monasteries, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will James Comey forget to tell us at his hearing?
This is the second time in which the show featured an all women panel. The first time was 2015-09-12, which also featured Faith Salie and Paula Poundstone (along with Roxanne Roberts).

The last time that Bill Kurtis used "Legendary Anchorman" in his intro was back on a non-Best Of show was 2015-04-18.

Faith Salie gave an assist to the listener after Bill Kurtis read the second limerick by speaking in a robotic voice.

After Tracy finished answering her Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions and Peter asked how many Faith would need to win, Tracy asked Faith to throw the game; because, it was Tracy's first time on the show.

Eddie Izzard: 1
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about someone with a real good reason to move out of their house, Not My Job about King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will Jeff Bezos buy next?
The correct answer for the third Not My Job question was not just one of the three possible answers, but all three; which, Eddie Izzard guessed correctly.

There was some pen or button clicking sound during a couple of segments during the show, but most evident during Alonzo Bodden's Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round. Alonzo took a little long to come up with an answer for his third Lightning question and Peter reminded him that it was the "Lightning" round.
