Episode notes

We continue our journey into The Sound of Young America’s vast audio archive with this program from The Sound of Young America Classics.

H. Jon Benjamin has an unmistakable voice. You might recognize him as the voice of Ben on the animated show Dr. Katz, or coach John McGuirk from Home Movies. He’s also written for shows such as Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Human Giant among others. What you don’t know, is what he does with the proceeds. Demetri Martin is a stand up comedian and and also a former writer for Late Night. Dimitri, a Yale graduate, explains why he decided to drop out of NYU law school and how he found the path to comedy.

About the show

Bullseye (formerly known as The Sound of Young America) is a weekly celebration of the best of arts and culture. Host Jesse Thorn sifts the wheat from the chaff to bring listeners in-depth interviews with the most revered and revolutionary minds in our culture.

The show is carried by public radio stations around the country, and was the first public radio program west of the Mississippi to podcast. It has received plaudits from publications like Time Magazine (which called it “Pick of the Podcasts”) and Salon.com. It was also honored by the iTunes editorial staff as a “classic” Best of iTunes selection. Since April 2013, the show has been distributed by NPR.
