Pretty Sure I Can Fly is a humorous exploration of things that had never been done, until someone did them. It’s a series of weekly conversations about what it takes to break through the barrier of “impossible” and set new standards for human limitation. Pretty Sure I Can Fly is like going to history class, except your teachers are actor, stuntman, and outlaw radio DJ Johnny Knoxville and long-time This American Life contributor Elna Baker. And each week they bring a new guest to tell you all about how they “grabbed the bull by the bunglesteen” or “really hogwrenched that spatooly.”

Unique and excellent.

Loving this more than I expected. Unlike anything else out there. Gives the mic to people I rarely hear from. Absolutely crazy to observe the commonalities across the guests and Johnny. Show focuses on the guests too.

Put it in your queue. Give it a try.

Leave me alone government!! ,

I thought I had big lady balls until I started listening to this

Y’all are so easy to love. I’ve always said I’ll try anything once, usually twice. Going to have to change that from “anything” to “most things”. Your guests have been crazy awesome, and y’all are so sweet and funny. Much love and appreciation for you and your podcast!

Interesting Guests

I particullary enjoyed the Anne Dennis episode. Johnny and Elena are great interviewers and don’t talk over guests.
