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.)

Jesse will talk to Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham about how their USA show 'Playing House' came together. We'll also hear from Bob Saget. You know him. 'Full House'. But he'll tell you himself: Danny Tanner is actually the role that changed everything for him. He's proud of it. Then later Jesse talks to Jim Rash. If you've seen him, it was probably on NBC's Community. They'll talk about the awkward-yet-inspiring summer talks he had with his dad and stepfather as a teenager, and the "bad carpet party" that his writing partner Nat Faxon once threw. Plus, Mark Frauenfelder from BoingBoing.net will share a couple of new games you should try out. And there's one very special movie out there. It's a movie Jesse loves. And if you like it too, it means you can be friends.
