Jesse Thornton Career

Thorn began to make his show, at the end of 2004, named The Sound of Young America, available as a podcast. Thorn and the show were mentioned in The Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine and Salon.com. Salon described Thorn’s interviewing style as combining “the civility and preparedness of Terry Gross leavened with the good humour of Conan O’Brien. Just after a few months, Thorn received a call from the director of programming at PRI, who had heard one of the podcasts and expressed interest in distributing the show. In 2006 WNYC-FM, a public radio station in New York City picked up the show, and PRI decided to distribute it. By September 2008 the show was carried on 18 public radio stations, in addition to the podcast. Thorn also hosts another podcast alongside Jordan Morris host, Jordan, Jesse, Go!

Jesse has also produced several other podcasts for MaximumFun.org, including Coyle & Sharpe: The Imposters and The Kasper Hauser Podcast. He is also a part of sketch comedy group Prank the Dean, together with Lauren Pasternak and Morris and Jim Real. Over time, The Sound of Young America became more focused on interviews. Jesse has been able to interview many notable personalities on his show, such as Nick Hornby and Nellie McKay. He also interviewed Stephen Colbert as a part of iTunes’s Meet the Author series. Thorn has become notably identified with a philosophy he calls “New Sincerity ” which was cited by a USA Weekend article as a listeners’ favourite and quoted Thorn’s explanation of the concept as “a rejection of irony.”

Jesse has promoted New Sincerity on his program, in his blog and in interviews. He was named as a popularizer of New Sincerity in a scholarly work discussing the similar novaia iskrennost’ concept in Russian post-Soviet aesthetic theory. In 2009, he helped podcaster and comedian Marc Maron to set up the microphones and software necessary to produce his WTF with Marc Maron podcast from his garage. Marc thanked Thorn again for helping him on the podcast’s 300th episode. Jesse is also the co-producer of the public radio broadcast version of Maron’s podcast. In 2012, The Sound of Young America was renamed Bullseye while continuing to have much of the same format as before.
