Best of Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! featuring favorite interviews and segments from 2018
The Bluff the Listener segment came from the 2018-12-07 live taping at Carnegie Hall in New York City, New York. Since that show did not air as a regular Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! show, I have noted the chosen and correct bluff information for this show.
Chicago, IL (Chase Auditorium)Peter Sagal "I'm one of the legendary voices of the NPR credits" Chioke I'Anson
Roxanne Roberts: 18 (4/7)
Paula Poundstone: 14 (2/6)
Luke Burbank: 10 (2/4)
Chosen: Roxanne Roberts
Correct: Roxanne Roberts
Mike D'Antoni: 3
Who's Chioke This Time?, Bluff the Listener about problems specific to Dubai, Not My Job about a Mike, a Dan and a Tony, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the next relevation from the world of literature?
For the second Not My Job question, Mike D'antoni asked if he could choose "D", all of the above. Peter Sagal accepted that answer since all three of the options were in fact correct.
Chicago, IL (Chase Auditorium)Peter Sagal "Sorry Mitch McConnell, nobody blocks this Bill" Bill Kurtis 
Helen Hong: 19 (5/7)
Mo Rocca: 13 (3/5)
Alonzo Bodden: 11 (5/3)
Chosen: Alonzo Bodden
Correct: Helen Hong
Conan O'Brien: 1
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a surprising effort to clean up the planet, Not My Job about hot cocoa, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the next self-help trend?
When asked how Conan O'Brien did on the show, Bill Kurtis said that he would throw the score out because anything Conan says is right.

Mo Rocca really pulled a Mo Rocca during the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round when trying to come up with an answer for the 5th question. Alonzo Bodden would also try to pull a Mo Rocca for his second Lightning question. Peter Sagal also accepted Alonzo's answer of "collusion" for his first Lightning question.

Only five of Alonzo's eight Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions were included in the edited version of the show and Bill stated that Alonzo had three points. One of the three points would have been in one of the three questions that was cut out.
Chicago, IL (Chase Auditorium)Peter Sagal "Bill the wall! Bill the wall! I'm Bill the Kurtis" Bill Kurtis

Charles "Peanut" Tillman: 2
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a real American hero in the news, Not My Job about offending people, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be Rudy Giuliani's next job?
All three of the correct answers for the Not My Job segment where "C".
