As I’ve written here before, the past few weeks I’ve been furiously working on launching a new public radio show called Bullseye with Jesse Thorn. It’s about the good stuff in popular culture. In-depth interviews with creators, recommendations from top critics, and original comedy.
You can hear the show on public radio stations around the country, including WNYC in New York, WHYY in Philadelphia, KALW in San Francisco and XM Public Radio (channel 133). You can ask your public radio station to check it out - it’s distributed by Public Radio International. You can also get it free in iTunes.
Below is a segment from our second episode, an interview with the comedian Chris Gethard. You might have heard Chris on last week’s This American Life. He’s had a crazy life, and has a great new book out called A Bad Idea I’m About To Do.
It’s the kind of interview where he has to say out loud the sentence “Your parents shouldn’t watch from a window as you beat a dwarf with a bat.”
So listen to it, then subscribe to the show in iTunes. That way you won’t miss upcoming interviews with Jack Handey, Jenna Fischer, Tim & Eric, Aisha Tyler and Werner Herzog.
