Jesse Thorn, of Bullseye (formerly The Sound of Young America), Jordan, Jesse, GO! (with cohost Jordan Morris), menswear site Put This  On and owner of Maximum Fun stopped by this episode of Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend to discuss relationships and new fatherhood, growing up with a dad who suffered from PTSD, going to an arts high school, being a podcaster from way back, fashion and design, bunny rabbits, dicks jokes versus fart jokes, naive art and pocket squares. We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone (click here to see the JMOEs we put on the screen) and HGFY.

  • When Alison made that comment about many guys wanting to put things in other things Jesse made this sound like he was either offended or about to make a quip but gave up. What actually happened there?

    Grrreat show. I got turned on to JT a number of years ago with The Sound of Young America - a kind of "blowhardy" title, though as I think is apparent, he is thoughtful, interesting, and too self-possessed for his own good. 

  • Not enough people use the term "self-possessed." I'm a fan! (of both Jesse and the term)

    unrelated, but thought of you when I just came across this. enjoy!

    Anyone wearing a bow tie is to be viewed with suspicion.

    I'd only heard Jesse's show once before when he did that train wreck of an episode with the Penny Arcade guys, so I wasn't expecting much of this ARIYNBF. He turned out to be a pretty interesting guest though.

    Here's the link for the 'Lost Episode' if you haven't heard it. It's kinda awesome in how bad it is...

    Aliso, sorry this comment isn't related to this podcast. I just wanted to say you're doing an excellent job on Adam's podcast. Adam's finally stopped being a dick to you, and is giving you room to showcase your talent. You've developed into a key player. Keep up the great work.

    I'm not using Adam's amazon link until he removes the "zip it c..t" from the show. It's obviously uncomfortable for you. And I feel uncomfortable every time you say it. It distracts from the show.
