"Finally, a public radio show that's specifically designed not for the kind of people who carry around canvas NPR tote bags. The hour you'll spend listening to host Jesse Thorn interview guests with youthful humor and enthusiasm won't feel like civic duty."--Esquire, "The Esquire 100"

Host Jesse Thorn and his guests performed live to a sold-out crowd. Guests included rock star Andrew WK, Scott Adsit from 30 Rock, singer Nellie McKay, comedian Kumail Nanjani and director Rik Cordero.
