Fresh Air with Terry Gross, the Peabody Award-winning weekday magazine of contemporary arts and issues, is one of public radio's most popular programs. Each week nearly two million people tune in to the show's intimate conversations broadcast to over 300 National Public Radio member stations across the country.
The one-hour program features Terry Gross' in-depth interviews with prominent cultural and entertainment figures, as well as distinguished experts on current affairs and news.
Though Fresh Air has been categorized as a "talk show", it hardly fits the mold. Its 1994 Peabody Award citation credits Fresh Air with "probing questions, revelatory interviews, and unusual insights." And a variety of top publications count Gross among the country's leading interviewers. The show gives interviews as much time as needed, and complements them with comments from well-known critics and commentators.
This collection of interviews brings together just a fraction of all the interviews from Fresh Air's history. It includes Terry Gross' conversations with James Woods, Diane Keaton, Al Pacino, David Chase, Bill Murray, Peter Fonda, Dustin Hoffman, John Cusack, Anjelica Huston, Clarence Williams III, Gene Hackman, Samuel L. Jackson, Sidney Poitier, Uta Hagen, David Mamet, Werner Herzog, and Catherine Deneuve.
