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.

As Thorn explains in the video, Bullseye is part of a new class of shows on NPR that are focusing on a younger, and if we may use the word without irony — hipper audience. It’s not Car Talk reruns or a show about gardening, which is what many people think of when they think of NPR shows. Here’s an excerpt from the show where Thorn is interviewing Axe Cop Ron Swanson Nick Offerman.

If you want to keep up on what’s new and interesting in pop culture, we highly recommend Bullseye. You can get it every Tuesday at or find it on your local public radio station.
