1. Before it even goes up on maximumfun.org, I wanted to share this episode of Bullseye that I’m really proud of. The guests are Judd Apatow and Dolly Parton. I talk with Judd about the unexpected pain of fatherhood and why family is worth it. I even check in with him on the new Pee-Wee Herman movie.

    And I talk with Dolly Parton about growing up as one of twelve brothers and sisters in the mountains of Tennessee, where the doctor had to ride a horse in to deliver babies, and about what she had to give up to become a star.

    Plus I extoll the virtues of one of my favorite books, Ego Trip’s Big Book of Racism, which makes a perfect holiday gift, and Jason from ….And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead talks about the song that changed his life: Waiting Room by Fugazi.

    It’s a really special episode and I hope you’ll give it a listen. You can either listen directly here, or skip over to iTunes to subscribe free. Or just download it from this direct link: http://traffic.libsyn.com/tsoya/bullseye121211b.mp3 .
