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.)

It's been awhile since 'Rushmore', but Jason Schwartzman will always remember the advice that Bill Murray gave him on-set. Jesse and Jason will talk about the first time he met Wes Anderson, what it was like to help write 'The Darjeeling Limited' and the experience of working with Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis on 'Bored to Death'. Then later Jesse talks to Russell Simmons. He co-founded Def Jam Recordings and helped build hip-hop. Now, he's written a book about the importance of meditation. Plus, actor Michael Peña will talk about the part that changed everything for him. The AV CLub's Todd VanDerWerff will tell you to check out HBO's 'Silicon Valley'. And everyone knows that rock music came from the blues, right? Well yeah. But there's actually a lot more to it than that. Jesse will explain.
