The magazine Fast Company once dubbed Jesse Thorn “the most important person in entertainment you’ve never heard of.” Whether you’ve heard of him or not, he now commands considerable influence in the world of public media. His college passion project, a radio show called “The Sound of Young America”, was picked up for national distribution in 2007 by Public Radio International, making him the youngest national host in public radio history. Later, the show transformed into “Bullseye with Jesse Thorn,” an interview show that can be heard on public radio stations across the country, including WAMU. We chat with Jesse, a self-professed comedian, about how he walks the fine line between entertainment, comedy and journalism.
