For The Sidebar #3, I interview Jesse Thorn, creator/host of public radio’s The Sound of Young America as well as podcast overlord of Maximumfun.org. Jesse – who still produces his show/podcast out of his living room – was a major inspiration behind me creating The Sidebar since being interviewed by him, at his home studio, made me realize I didn’t need a professional station studio to put something together.

In our near-hour convo, we talk about how TSOYA got its start, the joys of cooking blondies for donors, and how “Rich Girl,” is the jam.
