Jesse interviews comedian Chris Gethard about booking P. Diddy at a tiny theater in New York. Lawrence Weschler talks about why CGI faces will never look quite right, and why humans are addicted to narrative. Plus rap picks from Andrew Noz and pop culture advice from My Brother, My Brother and Me.

Bullseye!

My favourite part of the Lawrence Wechsler interview is when he mentions the CG crowds in Troy. I worked on those little Trojans! Nothing creepy about those guys.

I think I've heard Graham from Vancouver, Canada somewhere else before.

And I can't love the new format enough. Terrific job everyone.

This was a really great episode.

I'm worried that NPR program directors won't want to pick up the show in its current incarnation because it sounds too professional.

Conversely, I spent a few years camped in the uncanny valley, working on Delgo (http://delgo.com/).

Would you mind posting the bonus tracks to the podcast feed? It's easier to skip them if I'm not interested than to track them down if I am.

Thanks.

It will go in the podcast feed over the weekend. Because iTunes defaults to only downloading the most recent item (grrr) we have to space them out or people don't get the main show.

It didn't occur to me until Justin tweeted it that this meant that the MBMBaM boys were going to be heard on public radio. Love that the MaxFun love is getting spread further through Bullseye!

This episode made working in an oven-like attic in the middle of the Auckland summer way easier to get through. The only thing I'd change about Bullseye if I could would be to remove those swooshy bumpers. I don't know if they're there to add a youthful punch or sound like an arrow on its way to the eye of the bull but to me the pace and rhythm of the show has plenty of punch without them and they're just a redundant bump in the flow.

Everything else is aces to the max out of ten from Chimpan-Go Team to Chimpan-Jesse's fun new signoff. This podcast is the new apple of my bullseye.

Hey, I just realised ... Bullseye ... Earwolf ... body parts and animals.

Sorry, that's all I got.
