The first and last episode I’ll ever listen to. Also, I didn’t seek this episode. I’m just tired and was curious about what Mitchell and Web were up to. I was shocked at how blatantly backhanded all of this dude's compliments toward David and Robert were to begin with. Very awkward...Read full review »

Thank you so much for replaying your Raffi interview! Hit me right in my heart. Hearing his songs again after many years was so touching. What a tender wholesome soul! ❣️

Such a great show; am so happy to have found it.

Bad interviewer with no social skills and who is also an avid supporter of twisted self delusions. Dreadful.

Jesse is the best darn interviewer this side of the Mississippi. As WC Fields said, “I’d rather be here than Philadelphia.”

You know, it’s a great interview even if you don’t know who the guest is, but you enjoy the conversation. Jesse Thorn is a great host.

Great piece, first off. Could have been 2 hours long, John is an endlessly fascinating legend. I don’t know if I would need to see this as a remake. The only way I would be interested is if every character would be played by A-list actors. Johns visit to Pasolini’s Murder site was extraordinary,...Read full review »

Thank you ever so much for the tribute. His death came as terrible news. But it brought me to Bullseye. Your interview, honesty and thoughts were very touching. Condolences to you and everyone. That said, I’ll be tuning in to more Bullseye!

Why does Jesse s p e a k s o s l o w l y? I nod off waiting for him to finish his questions. Which are great questions. He’s a great interviewer. I seriously put the speed on 1.25 to get through it!

This is public service broadcasting in the US? Where is the balance? There are YouTubers with more breadth; Tweeters with more curiosity. Like so much of American culture, the episode I listened to was simplistic and divisive echo chamber cant. Politically it’s a bit of a gift to the right...Read full review »

Great interview with Chechen Marin. He is a former celebrity Jeopardy champ as well.

Love the interviews. Wide range of subjects in the arts.

Such a good listener and he asks such thoughtful questions. Jesse is bae

Love this program!

I used to only listen when my favorite artists were on Bullseye. I couldn’t help notice how often they would say, “what a good question, no one has ever asked me that.” I’ve since learned to love Jessie’s interview style and enjoy learning a tiny bit about him, and volumes about his fascinating...Read full review »
MPLS for all via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/05/22
The number of times I’ve heard a guest say “wow an interviewer has never asked me that” or “thank you so much for noticing that” is insane. Jesse has a skill for connecting with his guests that really gets the best out of the conversation, without being prying or insensitive. He comes across as...Read full review »
ClammyHand Luke via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/04/22
The variety of artists and scope of talent presented is unlike any other in this format. Jesse has a unique lens from which he asks his questions. His courage to ask in depth questions can yield the most touching responses. I always leave this podcast with a strong positive emotion and food for...Read full review »

I came to Bullseye after being a long-time Judge John Hodgman listener. It snuck up on me that Jesse Thorne is the second-best interviewer in the game right now. (Terry Gross is untouchable.)

And as you all know, chicken nuggets is my family.

So excited to find an Egyptian Lover interview. Excellent pod!
slofton88 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/22
At the end of the Tom Scharpling interview, after the guest had discussed his experience with mental illness and electroconvulsive therapy as a child, host Jesse Thorne thanked him for… getting vaccinated. Then he reminded the audience that he and those he works with all think fascism is bad...Read full review »

Never a bad episode. Beautiful way of getting to the heart of things.
Mdesharn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/02/22
He doesn’t seem to have the ability to deeply listen. Very often he will ask questions that are too similar in succession. Some really annoying bad habits: - he will ask questions like, do you feel A? or do you feel B? Instead of just asking How did ____ name you feel. -at least twice per...Read full review »

Always thoughtful and insightful, often funny as well. Jesse asks unique questions that somehow get at something I did not yet realize I always wanted to know! Jordan, Jesse Go! and Judge John Hodgman are also great Maximum Fun Podcasts Jesse makes.
Zukeep via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/17/22
Jesse Thorn is my favorite interviewer. He asks intelligent, thoughtful questions and is always well-researched before going in. He doesn’t let up when guests try to dodge or cop out, but constantly maintains a high level of kindness and respect. I think the interviews get deeper than a lot of...Read full review »

Exceptional interviewing! Just finished the ep with G Perico. I throughly enjoyed it. It was just another Sunday, where I listen to weekend edition until I decide to stop. This show came up and it kept me engaged the entire time. It was intelligent, thought provoking and opened my mind to...Read full review »

Jesse has the best questions, best ears, and best voice in podcasting. Pleased to recommend!
Kobra Kousin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/13/21
Simply the best.
Rach583! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/04/21
Jesse’s interviews are thoughtful, insightful and kind. He is truly a gentle giant. I love his show for bringing to light remarkable people that were not on my radar, and for getting to know more deeply the ones that were. Thanks Jesse!
Carbonaralyn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/05/21
Jesse is the best interviewer I know. The Sound of Young America was my first taste of podcasts. Bulleye is a good marketing name but honesty is what you should expect from Jesse. Word up!
VirusWithSpeech via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/21
Loved the interview with Louis Virtel and Liz Phair!
ms2jla1 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/29/21
Meh
I don’t think Jesse is a very good interviewer. He makes too much of the conversation about himself. He’s also so woke it hurts and takes any chance he possibly can to remind the world that he grew up poor. He also slips into a weird lingo when interviewing certain black people..?
rmaixkepaxjnz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/25/21
My son, who has lived with me longer than anyone, suggested this podcast. He is right; Jesse and his crew and guest put on a great show and I have learned about creators who make my world more interesting
Ksn783 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/11/21
Great guests but Jesse Thorne makes every interview about himself. I don’t think he was fair to Mitchell and Webb and it was unprofessional to keep pressing a point when the guest asked him not to and told him he didn’t want to talk about it. Agree or disagree with guest but when they ask you to...Read full review »

Also you can safely ignore any one star reviews from mid-April 2021.
billthecat111 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/13/21
Jesse Thorn is a great interviewer who goes beyond the surface level questions you might get on a shorter interview. His longer interviews usually get something new from the subject, and he’s always well prepared. He doesn’t take himself too seriously, but is always respectful to the guests and...Read full review »

The American’s are forcing their strange language-fanaticism upon the world. The interviewer has an almost psychopathic lack of humour and faux conviviality towards his guests.
wewonthewar via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/17/21
I like your style and appreciate your sensitive advocacy for diverse humans.
ThisLisa via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/17/21
Light-hearted chat to plug a sitcom turned into a hatchet job based around a tweet from years ago that Webb clearly was not expecting to have to talk about. Very awkward, wholly inappropriate and I take my hat off to Webb for how calmly and politely he dealt with the attack.
Ploby via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/15/21
Shocked at how Jesse Thorn conducted himself in the interview with Robert Webb and David Mitchell. Two exceptionally talented comedy writers and he wastes their time with an emotionally manipulative rant violating his own children’s privacy in order to effectively “cancel” Webb. Shamelessly...Read full review »

Gotcha journalism, disappointing.

Can a white man be any more self-righteous?

Not a fan

Jessie pretends to listen and communicate but he is just part of cancel culture...a bully bending to the vocal Twitter minority. Goodbye maximumfun! I’m done with you all.
