I'd really like an opportunity to talk to you about my business, godlesspatriots.com. I'm trying to start a line of t-shirts for Atheists and non-theists in the U.S. I'm launching a kickstarter soon and I could really use all the exposure I can get.
I currently have shirts available on shop.godlesspatriots.com, a portion of the proceeds from sales of these shirts go to support the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers directly.I need kickstarter support and exposure to expand the line in hopes of making it to TAM next year!
Just a note to those looking for a response here: Penn spends a great deal of his time making sure he acknowledges &/or answers as many tweets as possible. You are far more likely to get a response in that venue than you are here. The long format of internet chat sites/blogs makes it impossible for him to deal with the amount of content, even on sites he owns.
Goudeau & I do our best to at least skim everything here, & I'll answer anything I already know, but our time is limited, too.
So if it's a must-know proposition, head on over to Twitter.
Hi Penn! Which Nicholson Baker book would you recommend I start with? All of them are probably great, but which one would you say is a good place to start?
I love the show, by the way. And Ive watched all your Penn Points and am currently working my way through Penn Radio archives. Love the stuff you do... I'm a huge fan. Keep it up. Thank you for being you.
Hola penn! Today is my birthday 04/29 and it is not off to a good start. I am on the east coast and my b-day started a half hour ago and was not fun. Should have been out partying. Despite your magical abilities, i'm sure that the only thing you can do to make my birthday happier is to mention lexi's dad on your sunday school podcast. My name is peter but if you can mention "Lexi's dad" on your podcast i would be overjoyed. Btw, i've been to the amazing randi's weekly meetings in florida and was awarded an honor from FLASH as an organizer. Can you tell that i really, really want a birthday wish from you?
I've been thinking about your Reason Rally video, and I think you're making the wrong argument in trying to say morality from reward/punishment is not real morality. This puts us in the same position as theists in saying we're the good people and they're not. The truth is we all make all decisions, consciously or not, with a basic sense of cost vs reward. We as atheists and I'd say libertarians should be, and in fact I think can make the argument that causality is the ultimate reason for morality. We will all be better off if we can all find compassion for our fellow man. Even in the sense that you might not get an immediate reward out of helping someone in any given situation, if nothing else you did it because you would feel bad if you didn't. In the case of not going to the Reason Rally, didn't you even say on the podcast you didn't go because you'd have to pay the salary for the day of your whole team, so you could have had you decided it was worth it. Either way, its easy to say I couldnt come because I had to honor a contract. But if you were the kind of person to be constantly cancelling your shows and doing whatever all the time, you might very well find it hard to stay in business and find a good crew, and I think you know this. So you shouldn't be trying to say its all just cause you are a good person.
ever smashed a guitar? like in a prop on a stage? we were discussing that, and how the Who used to smash their instruments.. I remember that Smothers Brothers show, and i was upset too. cuz i was a poor kid. i couldnt understand how Pete could smash that nice guitar.. I woiuld have love to have such a nice guitar. never could afford one that nice.
and i read that article. and wondered.. you ever smash a guitar? on stage?
Mr.Jillette! I met you today at the Town Square shopping center in Vegas! I was the young lasy wearing thw white OBEY shirt you complimented? Anyway, I wanted to say that I'm sorry I didn't het a chance to thank you properly for your time. The 3 men taking our photo were totally old pervs and wouldn't give my phone back unless I took a picture with them also. I wanted to tell you, I love Bullshit and I'm a huge fan. The content used on Bullshit makes me sound super smart at parties! It has even gotten me slapped a few times! :)
Anyway. I couldn't sleep thinking I may have made you feel like a piece of disrespected meat. Though you may be used to that.... working with Showtime and all.
Hey Penn, I got a question that maybe you can discuss on the show if you want. What are your thoughts on the Joesph Kony, or any other similar persons? How would you suggest we act to remove such a man? If you were president, how would handle the situation?
Penn, already fan but your PSS podcasts are great.
Noticed no show for past Sunday. Hope you and family
Are ok. You and Mr.Takei are the only reason I watched
The Apprentice and you and team unanimous great.
You are kind, share credit and respectfully share ideas.
You did mention that you were quiet on show. I have
to agree with Mr. Trump. You are a gentlemen. Had to
write you to share one viewers opinion. Have seen all
your televised shows with Teller, guest appearances on
Sabrina, Bullsh#t and your show with an app. Truly miss
It and sorry it was canceled. Loved guessing which was true
and audience participation. Truly hope podcasts continue.
And yes I was a nun. First vows only. Long story. However
I respect your atheism. Wish you would write a book
on your journey of questioning faith. You have a more
"Christian" respect for all people than many people of faith
have shown. Correct me if I am wrong but it appears you
hold the best ideas of many faiths. Ideas such as kindness,
respect for others, helping those less fortunate and
humility of own personal limitations. Wish some religious
people would recognize that one can be a good person
And not subscribe to a particular faith or any faith except
A faith in the goodness of individuals. Again, wish to thank
you for a great and interesting podcast. Wish you,family,
coworkers and of course, Teller all good things now and in
