  2. Bob Saget Talks About Playing Full House’s Danny Tanner on Bullseye

    Because I'll never not write about Full House.

    Bob Saget is a filthy (and funny) comic, but many people still know him as compulsively clean "Danny Tanner" from Full House. The show was a cultural milestone in America, and changed the lives and careers of its cast members. Saget appeared on NPR's Bullseye with Jesse Thorn to talk about exactly how.

  3. David Letterman Is Retiring From The Late Show, Here’s Who I Think Should Replace Him

    I have a lot of feelings about this.

    Look. I have a lot of strong feelings about late night talk shows. I'm a comedian. I think we all do. It's looking like the David Letterman retiring rumor is true and that has me feeling feelings. Letterman is great, and he's going to leave a big hole. Who should fill it? Here's my pick, and no, I'm not picking myself.

  6. Take a Behind-the-Scenes Look at One of Our Favorite Radio Shows and Podcasts, Bullseye With Jesse Thorn

    Remember, every Geekosystem post has a signature subheader.

    Bullseye With Jesse Thorn is arguably one of the best radio shows around, and it's an argument we've made a few times on this site. The show and its host Thorn seek to bring listeners the very best in pop culture, and this new video takes a behind-the-scenes look at how and why the show is made. Let's go.

  7. This NPR Bracket Might Be Nerdiest Alternative to NCAA Tournament

    Today starts the NCAA March Madness tournament. Yawn. I don't want to perpetuate the stereotype that geeks can't also like sports, but man, do I hate March Madness.* The real action is in public radio feuds, and that's why I'm pumped to see that 89.3 KPCC has 32 NPR shows going head-to-head in an NCAA style tournament bracket.
