PETER SAGAL, HOST:

In just a minute, we're going to ask our panelists to predict what will be the most surprising revelation in the Kennedy files that were released this week. But first, let me tell you that support for NPR comes from NPR stations and Visit St. Petersburg/Clearwater, home of 35 miles of white sand beaches along Florida's Gulf Coast and a daily sunset celebration on Clearwater Beach, 90 minutes west of Orlando, at visitstpeteclearwater.com. The George Lucas Educational Foundation, creator of Edutopia, an online resource dedicated to improving the learning experience for America's students with information and strategies about what works in K-12 education.

WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME is a production of NPR and WBEZ Chicago in association with Urgent Haircut Productions - Doug Berman, benevolent overlord. Philipp Goedicke writes our limericks. Our house manager is Tyler Greene. Our interns are Katie O'Reilly (ph) and Gianna Capadona. Our webguru is Beth Novey. Special thanks to Revival Food Hall in downtown Chicago for feeding us. BJ Leiderman composed our theme. Our program is produced by Jennifer Mills and Miles Doornbos. Technical direction is from Lorna White with help from Gary Yeck. Our CFO - that's Colin Miller. Our public address announcer is Paul Friedman. Our production coordinator is Robert Neuhaus. Our senior producer is Ian Chillag. And the executive producer of WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME is Mr. Michael Clotheshorse Danforth.

Now panel, what shocking revelation will we find when we've gone through those Kennedy archived documents? Adam Burke.

ADAM BURKE: It will have the bombshell revelation that not only were there two shooters, there were also two grassy knolls and two motorcades and two Dallases and two - look, it was the '60s. They were doing a lot of drugs.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Paula Poundstone.

PAULA POUNDSTONE: They found a handwritten line surrounded by flecks of orange stuff that said Obama did it. Believe me.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Luke Burbank.

LUKE BURBANK: Despite what your uncle's been posting on Facebook, it was not the result of Hillary's private email server.

(LAUGHTER)

BILL KURTIS: Well, if any of that happens, we will ask you about it on WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME.

SAGAL: Thank you, Bill Kurtis. Thanks also to Adam Burke, Paula Poundstone and Luke Burbank. Thanks to all you for listening. I am Peter Sagal. We will see you next week.

(APPLAUSE)
