An Ounce of Prevention - S6-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When Roy and Johnny are on Tom Jensen's show, the outline of Johnny's lavalier mic transmitter is visible on the front, right of Johnny's shirt, over his belt, as he and Roy begin their demonstration, and also after Jensen's crew member electrocutes himself when Johnny and Roy carry and lay him down near the table. This has nothing to do with the wired mics that are clipped onto Roy's and Johnny's ties for Tom Jensen's show.
