Gweek 033: Jesse Thorn


Gweek is a podcast where the editors and friends of Boing Boing talk about comic books, science fiction and fantasy, video games, board games, tools, gadgets, apps, and other neat stuff.

In this episode, Dean Putney and I are joined by Jesse Thorn, the creator and host of the long-running and fantastic radio show and podcast formerly known as The Sound of Young America. Jesse’s also the co-creator and bailiff on the Judge John Hodgman podcast, and the founder of the podcast network.
