Bullseye with Jesse Thorn
Bullseye from NPR is your curated guide to culture. Jesse Thorn hosts in-depth interviews with brilliant creators, culture picks from our favorite critics and irreverent original comedy. Bullseye has been featured in Time, The New York Times, GQ and McSweeney's, which called it "the kind of show people listen to in a more perfect world." (Formerly known as The Sound of Young America.)
All World Knowledge 2-4-06

Guests John Hodgman and Fred Rees. Is it possible to contain all of the world's knowledge within the boundaries of one book? One radio show? We find out here. John Hodgman can be seen on the Daily Show, heard on This American Life, and read in his new book The Areas of My Expertise. The book is a compendium of made-up facts more valuable than the vastest library. Fred Rees is creator of The Book of Cool, a DVD set (and book) that teaches you every cool skill you need in life, from pen-spinning to behind-the-back dribbling.
