It's another This Year release! This time we're covering a comedy show, The Penn Jillette Radio Show. You probably know Penn Jillette from Penn & Teller and from the duo's superb television series Bullshit! (The Mother Teresa episode is my favorite.) Penn also hosted a radio show from his house from January 2006 to March 2007. It was a great show—it's now been rebooted as Penn's Sunday School—and we figured we'd start doing best-ofs for those old episodes. The radio show was pretty similar to Bullshit! Penn talked about atheism, libertarianism, and other good stuff in that vein, and he also talked about and debunked things like psychics, palm readers, and more. This best-of covers Q1 2006 of the show (Jan, Feb, and Mar) and here's what's in it...
...in this best-of, Jillette and Goudeau overcome technical difficulties (that might have been brought about by God) before going on to discuss circumcision, atheism, physics, free speech, clown sex, palm reading, conspiracy theories, and Paul McCartney’s Live and Let Die. Paul Provenza, James Randi, and Adam Carolla also make in-studio appearances.
You can download the show here! It's one big MP3 file; usually we split it up, but I couldn't find a natural break without spoiling the flow of the show. So it's all seven hours in one file. Sorry if that's an inconvenience in any way. Also, subscribe to the feed, follow us on Twitter, and like us on Facebook.
Our next episode is a best-of for This American Life, specifically the best stories from the episodes #26 -> #50. We're doing best-ofs for those early shows (pre #100) because not many people have heard them. After that, we've got our final GFW Radio best-of (2008) lined up.
