Rick Horowitz recently had an electronic conversation with me about the show “Penn and Teller: Bullshit.” I’m a huge fan of the show for a lot of different reasons.
Today, I want to highlight a few episodes worth watching. You can find all seasons of the show on Netflix, and individual episodes are available for download on Amazon. Here are the ones that I think are most applicable to the CDL community.
- Death Penalty. Season 4, episode 3.
- Lie Detectors. Season 7, episode 5.
- Criminal Justice. Season 8, episode 7.
- Vaccinations. Season 8, episode 10. (OK, not directly involving criminal law, but people who argue against vaccinations really piss me off. Don’t even try to comment on this post with your Jenny McCarthy propaganda. In fact, just thinking about advising parents not to vaccinate their children really torques me.)
Here are three YouTube clips. The first is a Death Penalty clip (it’s pretty powerful), and the following two are the entire Vaccinations episode. Particularly compelling is the opening “bowling” sequence of the Vaccinations episode.
Note: There are numerous F-bombs and some nudity.
First, a little bit about the Death Penalty:
