Rename my public radio show! (Details inside.)

I've been running a public radio program called The Sound of Young America (coincidentally underwritten in part by this very site) for about ten years. It's an arts and culture interview show. We interview "cool" creators about their work and their creative process. We also feature culture picks and original comedy.
We've always had problems with people assuming the show is for kids/teens or is a political show or any number of other weird things based upon our name, and so we're changing it.
We're looking for a name that conveys the fact that our guests are "curated" - that we're presenting in-depth insights into people whose work is worth your time. We want something simple and non-alienating, but with a little bit of content, too. The show is often about comedy, and something that suggests that is fine, but we don't want a joke name.
"The AV Club," which is the Onion's culture pages, is an example of something that would work if it weren't taken. "Fair Game," the news satire show (now departed) is another example of a show whose name we like. Our current plan is "More with Jesse Thorn" (I'm Jesse Thorn), but we're not in love with it.
So, what are your ideas?
(Of course I'd ask that by suggesting a name, you agree to let us use it if we pick it :).)
