First 22 minutes are about the public's reaction to Penn & Tellers Bullsh*t , one of my favorite programs. Penn was surprised by the supportive tone of the tv audience writing in. He was expecting more rebuke, and it didn't come. Mostly because...... the show is honest.

Then he transitions into laughably wrong religious complaints against atheism such as lack of morality.

At 26 min, the difference between magic and illlusion vs tricks and then to tv shows that reveal magics secrets.

It is more a promo for Penn & Teller than a substantive review of atheism.

Worth a look especially if you are a fan, as I am.
