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.)

Paul Rust has just made his big break starring in the teen romp I Love You Beth Cooper, but he's been a long time friend of the show and was named one of Variety's 10 Comics To Watch in 2008. Rust will talk about how the silliness of Pee-wee Herman remains a seminal influence and the best parts of working with a big time, earnest filmmaker like Chris Columbus.
