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.)

Guest Andrew WK.  This week is our last broadcast from our long-time home base, KZSC in Santa Cruz.  We bid an affectionate farewell to the station with two of our favorite segments from our six years in Santa Cruz.  The first is a chat with Andrew WK -- he talks about his philosophy of life, and offers some rock & roll advice to Jesse's younger brother Brendan.  Then, we hear the original old time radio-style serial "Mace Detective, Private Detective."  Mace investigates the mystery of Popinjay's Whizbang, when he's not being distracted by Goofus & Gallant.  Also: a brand new sketch from the Kasper Hauser Skit Club.
