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.)

[r] Jesse Thorn talks to the most famous drag queen in the world, RuPaul. They’ll talk about the time before RuPaul was RUPAUL and how growing up an outcast in San Diego, television was his main companion - and main inspiration.

Later Terry Crews tells how he went from a stint in the NFL to a part on Brooklyn 99.

Plus, MBMBaM's McElroy Brothers advise on arcade etiquette andLA Times book critic Carolyn Kellogg shares the memoir of a TV repairman who explored the notion of immortality.

Oh, and Jesse names the greatest hip-hop album ever recorded. A bold claim? Yes. A true claim? Yes.
