Bullseye with Jesse Thorn (formerly known as The Sound of Young America) is a public radio show about things that are awesome. Each week on the show, host Jesse Thorn, "America's Radio Sweetheart," brings you in-depth discussions with personalities from the world of entertainment & the arts. Think of it like Conan O'Brien on public radio, or "Fresh Air," but more fun.
The program is carried on public radio stations around the country, and was the first public radio program west of the Mississippi to podcast. It has received plaudits from publications like Time Magazine (which called it "Pick of the Podcasts") and Salon.com (which wrote "If you've never heard The Sound of Young America, then The Sound of Young America is the greatest radio show you've never heard."). It also was honored by the iTunes editorial staff as a "classic" Best of iTunes selection. Since April 2013, the show has been distributed by National Public Radio.
