Customer Reviews

Entertaining and Informative

Jesse Thorn makes for a very capable and engaging host in this podcast, interviewing some of the finest comedians, writers, presenters and musicians currently around. Frequently they are individuals outside of the mainstream's eye but regardless of whether you are familiar with the interviewee, the discussions are always interesting.

What a sound!

Jesse Thorn's radio voice could coax milk from a stone. But he uses it to have warm, funny conversations with people you'd feel lucky to meet at a party. Go click Subscribe.

Deerhoof to Mavis Staples via Iain Mckaye and John Waters

So many great interviews with so many interesting people. The sheer diversity of guests is worth downloading alone but with Mr Thorn's lovely interview style he really lets his interviewees tell interesting stories. I am not sure which one I listened to first but there are so many interesting and charming interviews here, I have discovered so many films, books, comedy and music through the podcast.
If you want a sample I would suggest the brilliant Lynda Barry, Mavis Staples, Jonathan Ames, john Waters, Lemmy, Donald Glover, Flying Lotus or David Rakkoff interviews from the past year and then dive into the archives...
