When you hear someone say the phrase “truth is stranger than fiction”, they’re talking about Penn Jillette. The talking half of Penn and Teller is perhaps one of the strangest and most entertaining people alive, with more stories, and more weird friends than you can imagine are possible.
This is why I loved listening to his radio show on FREE FM out of Las Vegas, and why I was through the roof when I discovered he just started (In February of this year) a new weekly podcast/vidcast with his co-host Michael Goudeau called Penn’s Sunday School.
For example, this week he talked about breaking into an abandoned missile silo with friends a few years back, and the sheer horror of the sensory deprivation that involves. If I went through that myself, I think I would have been in stark bloody terror about 5 minutes in! Holy crap!
And yet, I have no doubt everything he’s saying is true, all of it.
I might not agree with all his opinions, but Penn really is one of the coolest people alive. Give it a listen!
Join us as Penn Jillette, Michael Goudeau, and YOU discuss the news of the week.
We’ll examine religious news, talk about monkeys, and anything else that seems funny or makes us mad. We’ll also take your suggestions for things you feel like talking about.
We will be running a live video feed from the Vintage Nudes Studio for people with the time and inclination to watch people sitting and talking. The live show will start at noon Vegas time most Sundays and will be available for download by about 7 PM Sunday evening.
