NPR: 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.)

George Clinton is the 72-year-old master of funk. He paid his dues in the mainstream -- singing doo wop and writing for Motown. Then, with Parliament-Funkadelic he developed a look and a sound that was like nothing else before it. Later Christian Acker talks about the history of the tags you see on walls, park benches and trash cans everywhere. Plus, we'll go into the woods with comedian Chris Fairbanks. Andrew Noz will tell you about great new tracks from Nicki Minaj and Vince Staples. Lastly Jesse will play a song that reminds you of what it feels like to be a teenager. The good parts.
