PETER SAGAL, HOST:

In just a minute, we're going to ask our panelists to predict, now that Paul Manafort's in trouble, who will be the next person to get indicted and why. But first, let me tell you that support for NPR comes from NPR stations and 20th Century Fox, presenting "Murder On The Orient Express," where everyone is a suspect, from director Kenneth Branagh, in theaters November 10 Visit St. Pete Clearwater, home to white sand beaches on Florida's Gulf Coast, featuring Et Cultura, a five-day interactive music, film and art festival November 15 through 19 at visitstpeteclearwater.com. And Lumber Liquidators, a proud sponsor of NPR, offering more than 400 styles, including hardwood, bamboo, laminate and vinyl. With flooring specialists in hundreds of stores nationwide - more at lumberliquidators.com or 1-800-HARDWOOD.

Special thanks to Revival Food Hall in downtown Chicago for feeding us. 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 and Gianna Capadona. Our web guru is Beth Novey. B.J. Leiderman composed our theme. Our program is produced by Jennifer Mills and Miles Doornbos. Our public address announcer is Paul Friedman. Technical direction is from Lorna White. Our CFO is Colin Miller. Our production coordinator - that's Robert Neuhaus. Our senior producer is Ian Chillag, and the executive producer of WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME is Mr. Michael Danforth. Now, panel, who's going to get indicted next? Helen Hong.
