Best of Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! featuring favorite moments and some never-before-aired panelist questions
For the first panel round, the NPR transcripts list Helen Hong and "Unidentified Person #1" and "Unidentified Person #2". Unidentified Person #1 sounds very much like Roy Blount, Jr. and my best guess on who Unidentified Person #2 could be Jordan Carlos. Once a definitive answer has been obtained, that spot will be left blank.

The Bluff the Listener segment was from the 2018-09-08 show and not from a yet-to-be-aired show; thus, the chosen and correct data will not be entered for this show.

The Not My Job segment with Seth Meyers came from the 2018-12-07 live taping at Carnegie Hall in New York City, New York and was originally aired on the 2018-12-29 Best Of show.

Peter Sagal had to restart introducing the panelists due to loud car exhaust sounds that were coming from the listener contestant's side of the call.

Marin Alsop nudged for a hint on the first Not My Job question and got an assist from the audience when they yelled out "C" after Peter Sagal read all three options for the third Not My Job question.
