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.)

Cameron Esposito and Rhea Butler met at a comedy night in Chicago five years ago.  Rhea was new to comedy and still had a day job.  Cameron had been a working comedian for almost a decade.  They hit it off, fell in love, moved to LA, got married and started a stand up night called "Put Your Hands Together".  Last year they were asked by the Seeso network to make a stand up series based on "Put Your Hands together". It ended up morphing into the show they made, a sitcom called "Take My Wife".  The show mirrors their lives in almost every way.  Cameron and Rhea sit down with Jesse to talk about the good and bad of making a show based on your lives and marriage.

Although he is probably best known for his role on Curb Your Enthusiasm, Jeff Garlin has a very prolific career.  He came in to tell us about the craziest night of his career for our new segment "The craziest @#$% day of your career".

Jesse tells us about a movie with a beautiful lack of ambition.  The taking of Pelham 123.
