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.
