Sony supplied several HD cameras to Penn. He has a couple at his house, one in his dressing room at the Rio Hotel & Casino and another in his car.

“Big badass Crackle has given me the chance to talk directly to you about anything I want, anytime I want. I mean anything. I mean any time. When something gets my goat, or I want to get someone else’s goat or other farm animal, I’ll flip on my camera and rave about it. Half-cocked, from inside my head, electronically to inside your head in minutes. No script, no thinking, so I might be wrong. I’m counting on you to keep me honest with videos right back to me,” said Jillette.

  1. I missed his radio show and now I’m forced to listen to copies over the internet. Now I can actually get Penn more current.

    And to anyone, don’t write him off just because he’s crazy or not Teller. I’ve gained a lot of insight about magic from listening to his radio show. I don’t mean just technec, but the attitude and feel of magic, how to approach it honestly without losing the deception.

  2. After listening to his radio shows, I still don’t know if he knows anything about anything, or if he just BS’s his way through it all… but he’s definitely fun to listen to.

    Scott.
