It may not be the movie that won Jeff Bridges an Oscar, but The Big Lebowski is still one of the actor's favorites. Bridges joins Zen master Bernie Glassman to talk with Jesse about the Dude in all of us. Then, H. Jon Benjamin talks about voicing the super spy Archer and his days recording Dr. Katz in a kitchen pantry. Plus, Jesse pays tribute to a California great: Huell Howser.

Bullseye with Jesse Thorn: Jeff Bridges, Bernie Glassman, H. Jon Benjamin and Mike Wiebe

Jesse,
Do you get called 'Jess' very often? It came across as a familiarity that seemed appropriate for Jeff Bridges.

I do not. And I hate being called Jess, unless it's Jeff Bridges, in which case I love it.

Duly noted. Who are some others that might be able to get away with calling you 'Jess'? Off the top of my head, I immediately thought of Todd Glass and Alec Baldwin, although for different reasons.

Our interstitial music is original and provided to us by Dan Wally, aka DJW. It's not commercially available.

I dig it as short as it is :) I'm sure that question is often asked. Thanks for taking the time to answer, Jesse.

I, too, noticed the "Jess." Charming, coming from Bridges.

Wasn't there an episode of JJGO where someone sent an email suggesting that Jordan call Jesse "Jess" and Jesse call Jordan "Jor," just for one sequence, without explaining why?
