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] R&B stars Ruth and Anita Pointer will talk about the records that inspired them and the country song that earned them a Grammy, but mostly, they’ll have a lot of fun remembering all the great hits they had. We're so excited! 'Frozen' composer Bobby Lopez will talk about why Willy Wonka's ‘Pure Imagination’ changed his life. Carolyn Kellogg of the the LA Times recommends some of her favorite literary westerns. Lastly Jesse will talk about why 'The Muppet Movie' proves that you don't have to be cynical about showbiz.
