Jesse Thorn talks podcasting, MaximumFun, NPR and how to create a community of listeners

After I finished my first round of conversations for the podcast project, I got a number of emails and social media mentions suggesting I talk to Jesse Thorn, the self-described proprietor of MaximumFun.org and host of the hugely popular Bullseye with Jesse Thorn radio show and podcast.

So that's exactly what I did.

During our conversation it becomes abundantly clear why people suggested I talk to Jesse. Not only has he been doing this for some time and is a certainly is a pro, but his approach in creating interesting long-form conversations that his audience enjoys and will stay engaged with over the long haul shows he understands this market better than most.

This is one of the conversations I have made available for the Podcast Project. If you'd like to learn more about this project, go to nextmarket.co/pages/the-podcast-project for more details.

I can’t believe he’s been his own forum admin this whole time. That’s dedication to a community!
