The RFK Tapes
From the news
Aired 5 months ago 75:04
Billy Magnussen is a very busy guy. When he's not starring in blockbuster films, like Into the Woods, Bridge of Spies, Ingrid Goes West, Game Night, and the upcoming live-action adaptation of Disney's Aladdin, you can catch him on Netflix in Maniac, or on CBS All Access in Tell Me a Story. He's also a veteran of the Broadway stage, who, in 2012, was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Play. Above all else, though, he's just a damn good guy, and one helluva softball player! He and Jonathan discuss all that and more on this episode of The Next Best Thing!

Billy Eichner & Ali Wong
This week we're pulling two favorites out of the Bullseye archives. First on the docket: Billy Eichner! He's an actor and comic and host of the hit comedy game show Billy on the Street - where he and a camera crew accost random New Yorkers with questions about Hocus Pocus, Meryl Streep and more. Yes, it sounds great. If you've seen it, you know it's even better. Then, we revisit Jesse's 2016 chat with Ali Wong. She's an acclaimed stand up comic. At the time, she'd just released Baby Cobra. It was her debut hour long special and she recorded the entire thing while 7 months pregnant. 7 months! She talks with Jesse about her standup act, her new motherhood and how her relationship with her mom has changed. And finally, for The Outshot: a story about a man who invented a brand new genre of music just by stripping other instruments away.
