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.)

Lately, Jessica Walter is known for playing the icy mother figure. After all, she was Lucille Bluth on Arrested Development and is the voice of Mallory Archer on the animated series Archer. But her career stretches back more than 50 years with roles in Play Misty For Me and even on the 90s sitcom Dinosaurs. Jesse and Jessica will talk about all of it. And then later, with the Super Bowl almost here, Nicholas Dawidoff will talk about why FOOTBALL -- more than baseball -- is the thinking-man’s sport. And he’ll tell us what the game might look like in 10 years. Cameron Esposito and Ricky Carmona from the podcast Wham! Bam! Pow! will also join us. They’re going to share a couple of all-time great action and sci-fi movies that you need to see. Then Annie Hart -- from the indie-pop keyboard trio Au Revoire Simone -- will talk about the song that helped her find community as a teenager in suburbia. Lastly, Jesse will say goodbye to an old friend: Candlestick Park.
