God bless these people!


I have recently been interviewed a couple of times, and I thought I would share them for those who don't have a google news alert set up for "the sound of young america" yet. (Which, I sincerely hope, is everyone on earth who isn't me).

Here I am on this morning's "Moldawer in the Morning" podcast
. The charming David Moldawer and I discuss a few interesting news stories, as well as how much we love SkyMaul. It was a very fun show.

Here I am being interviewed in The Coming, which is the new LA affiliate of The Apiary. I talked with Megan Berru about the roots of TSOYA and the Los Angeles comedy scene.

Also and additionally, Dr. Tim Anderson posted this small piece in the online journal "In Media Res" about the show. It's about how TSOYA covers hip-hop, and specifically about portrayals of "the game" in our interviews with Killer Mike and Peedi Crakk.

Oh! And I've been hosting the Slate Daily Podcast the last couple days. That's mostly me reading a story from Slate, but Friday's show was an edition of the Political Gabfest, so I actually had some agency in it. It was fun!

Also: because I don't have any "marketing budget" or "publicist," I'm pretty much happy to help you out with any press project. If you want to interview me or use me as a resource, I'm happy to help. I even have high-quality photos (thanks Noe)!

John Dickerson!Awesome, Jesse!

FYI, I sent a copy of Dr. Anderson's interview to everyone in my Sociology 579 class at Ohio State. The class is about development in the 3rd world but we had been having a discussion about institutional racism. It seemed obvious to me that some of these kids had never even considered that lives for poor blacks in the US is different from theirs and there is a way to talk about racism that begins with a willingness to listen to people. (ok, a bit over the top, but important stuff)
