Sad news for those of us who love skepticism, humor, and quality radio programming.
Penn Jillette's amazing, hilarious, and infinitely interesting radio show (featuring the best co-host ever, Michael Goudeau) on Free FM has officially ended, at least for the time being. I'll offer a link to the official Penn Radio homepage, but I don't know what will come of it in light of this depressing news.
I found Penn's show around October of last year and, since then, my brother and I have listened to it nearly every single day. When we went home to visit the family for Christmas, we went through Penn withdrawal because our ancestral home has the slowest dial-up connection known to man.
In the meantime, those who didn't religiously tune in to Penn's show (or, in my case, listen to it on the Net) can find a comprehensive archive at PennFans; listen, laugh, and kick yourself in the ass for not discovering it earlier.
If you were a fanatical Penn Radio listener, drop Penn and Goudeau an e-mail at PennRadio(at)gmail(dot)com and let them know that you loved the show and eagerly await the triumphant return.
Dogspeed to P&G; here's hoping they come back, entertain, and inform us very soon.
