Particularly excellent episode of "Bullseye" podcast, with Judd Apatow and Dolly Parton

Jesse Thorn shares word of a really special episode of his podcast, Bullseye, with guests including...
Judd Apatow and Dolly Parton, plus a segment with Jason Reece of ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead talking about the song that changed his life, ("Waiting Room" by Fugazi), and a comics segment with BB's own Brian Heater. Judd and I talked about the kind of terrifying and gut-churning parts of having a family and why it's important. And Dolly and I talked about, among other things, how she wrote "I Will Always Love You" as a statement of independence from Porter Waggoner, and how she herself had to give up having a family to support her extended family as a country star. She's a totally amazing woman.
Jesse says he is "really super proud of this one," and I can see why. Here's the Soundcloud link. This is the iTunes link.


  1. Excellent, professional stuff. He sets the bar really high. I started listening to The Sound Of Young America when my wife introduced me to it. Then listening to more podcasts like Shift Run Stop and the excellent story podcasts Escape Pod and Pseudopod, I got the idea that I could do my own as a hobby (I have a regular day job). 5 episodes in and I’m having lots of fun with it, and although I know I’ll never have the celebrity guests that Bullseye and similar podcasts have, I’m happy to be able to interview my friends about their fascinating jobs and hobbies.
