Drew Carey, Penn Jillette Talk Comedy, Politics, and Libertarianism

|

 Reason TV creator and entertainment legend Drew Carey stopped by Penn Jillette's Sunday School podcast recently for a wide-ranging conversation about virtually everything under the sun. Click below to listen to the whole thing (you can download it too) via Soundcloud.

Drew talks about his time in the Marine reserves, a suicide attempt, his standup career, his love of the board game Monopoly, the changes he brought to The Price is Right, how to win in Vegas, and his role in creating both Reason.tv and our news aggregation feed, Reason 24/7.

And there's this great bit on what it's like to be a libertarian (around the 44-minute mark):

If you're a libertarian, every election you're sad. Every election, if you're a libertarian, you're going to feel like you were playing Monopoly and you got up to go to the bathroom for five minutes. And when you came back, everybody made a trade and fucked you out of the game.

  1. Speaking of Penn Jillette, Celebrity Apprentice is flerking boring this year.

  2. Just finished Jillette’s God, No! as an audiobook in February. Awesome. I drive a lot for my work, and I had to turn it off in traffic. Too distracting.

    1. Is the audiobook form read by Penn himself? Because that might be worth it.

    2. I’ll need to do that. I did listen to Hitchen’s God is Not Great, narrated by the man himself. What a history lesson! fascinating.

  3. My wife won’t ever play Monopoly with me again. She says I’m mean and vicious when I play. She’s right, to a point. I play like Drew says, put houses up as soon as possible, the goal being to put the other players out of business. I would always wipe her out first, just because she plays “nice”. It was just business, nothing personal.
