Penn and Parker on the radio

South Park co-creator Trey Parker paid a visit to comedian/magician Penn Jillette's radio show the other day, and you can listen to the entire show by clicking over to the PennRadio site. Don't wait too long, though, because they only list shows for the last few days, and there's no archive of past shows. Parker and Jillette talked about all the craziness that has centered around the show in the past year, but Penn also touched on something that often gets ignored in stories about the show, which is that beneath all the subversiveness and political incorrectness, the show can actually be very patriotic, and very human. Parker talks about Isaac Hayes leaving the show, and maintains that Hayes' constituents in the Scientology community had more to do with shaping the aftermath of Hayes' departure than anyone realizes. He also talks about people who have confronted him about the show, and reveals that often it's liberals, and not conservatives, who take issue with the show's subject matter.
