As some of you know, my real job is as a public radio host and producer. If you don’t get my show, Bullseye, on your local NPR station, you can get it free in iTunes via podcast. I’m super proud of this episode, with Judd Apatow and Dolly Parton, and I hope you’ll give it a listen.

Before it even goes up on maximumfun.org, I wanted to share this episode of Bullseye that I’m really proud of. The guests are Judd Apatow and Dolly Parton. I talk with Judd about the unexpected pain of fatherhood and why family is worth it. I even check in with him on the new Pee-Wee Herman movie.

And I talk with Dolly Parton about growing up as one of twelve brothers and sisters in the mountains of Tennessee, where the doctor had to ride a horse in to deliver babies, and about what she had to give up to become a star.

Plus I extoll the virtues of one of my favorite books, Ego Trip’s Big Book of Racism, which makes a perfect holiday gift, and Jason from ….And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead talks about the song that changed his life: Waiting Room by Fugazi.

It’s a really special episode and I hope you’ll give it a listen. You can either listen directly here, or skip over to iTunes to subscribe free. Or just download it from this direct link: http://traffic.libsyn.com/tsoya/bullseye121211b.mp3 .
