Jesse Thorn’s ‘Bullseye’ Will Be Distributed Through NPR Starting in April
MaximumFun.org chief Jesse Thorn’s radio show/podcast Bullseye (previously called The Sound of Young America) will be airing on NPR beginning in April, Thorn announced today. The move comes after months of negotiations and planning between Thorn and NPR. Bullseye is an expertly-curated show that features Thorn interviewing guests from the entertainment world and recommending his favorite works of pop culture with an emphasis on comedy. Past guests have included Jeff Bridges, Judd Apatow, Dolly Parton, Michael Ian Black, Demetri Martin, Chris Gethard, Bob Newhart, and Key & Peele. Under the new deal, Thorn will continue to produce Bullseye independently; it will just be distributed by NPR. Congrats to Jesse Thorn, who will surely be gaining a greater audience with this NPR move and gain a greater audience for one of the best podcasts going.
