Starting in October, the show Bullseye with Jesse Thorn will replace Ask Me Another from 11 a.m.-noon on Saturdays.
Bullseye is a celebration of the best of arts and culture in public radio form. Host Jesse Thorn sifts the wheat from the chaff to bring you in-depth interviews with the most revered and revolutionary minds in our culture.
Guests on the show in just the last few weeks have been Uzo Aduba (Orange Is the New Black, In Treatment), actor Sam Richardson (Veep, The Tomorrow War), Aidy Bryant from SNL and Jonathan Majors (Loki, Lovecraft Country).
In June, NPR announced that it would no longer be producing Ask Me Another. After nine years of trivia, laughs and celebrity guests they are stopping production and distribution of the program this fall. Host Ophira Eisenberg, musician Jonathan Coulton, and the entire AMA team each week created an escape from the increasingly difficult news cycle. Since its inception in 2012, AMA has performed hundreds of live shows at the Bell House in Brooklyn, and took the show on the road to live venues hosted by stations across the country. This last year changed everything about their work and the team pivoted to a remote production model, completely reformatting the show. Through it all, they kept us laughing with music, TV, movie, and pop culture trivia on a quest for the answers to life’s funnier questions.
The final episode of AMA will air on KPR Saturday, September 25, 11 a.m.
We look forward to many compelling conversations and hope you join us Saturday mornings at 11 for Bullseye!
