Overview

Fresh Air with Terry Gross on National Public Radio is not your typical interview show. Lauded as one of the country's best interviewers by many national publications, Gross guides interviews with "probing questions, revelatory interviews and unusual insights" as stated in the Peabody Award citation the show received in 1994.

We've put together another volume consisting of interview segments sure to please the NPR fan and intriguing enough to capture the attention of the person still unfamiliar with the show. These interviews are not just stylish flashy sound bites but substance worth the time it will take to go through all three CD's

.

Fresh Air, produced at WHYY-FM in Philadelphia and broadcast nationally by NPR, is one of public radio's most popular programs.

Editorial Reviews

Orville Schell
In Fresh Air, the most notable feature of Ms. Gross's singular style of interviewing is that she is rarely in the presence of her guests. Why? Because most are hundreds, even thousands, of miles away, linked to her only by a satellite. While she sits in what she refers to as her "black, windowless room," guests—mostly authors, musicians, professors, journalists, dancers, scientists and politicians—are ensconced in other distant studios, or sometimes simply on a telephone, somewhere else around the world. But far from impeding her ability to establish rapport, distance has, counterintuitively, enabled Ms. Gross to create a sense of closeness and engagement that has become a hallmark of what many see as the best interview show in broadcasting.

In any interview, what makes the crucial difference for a guest is confidence that the interviewer has a real interest in the subject. Such interest confers a dignity on the whole exchange. And one of the things that draws thoughtful guests to Fresh Air is the knowledge that Ms. Gross is among that ever smaller number of broadcasters who is both interested in the world and prepared for her guests. And so, whereas I have all too often left interviews with an aftertaste of disappointment and frustration, I have always left  Fresh Air  feeling well represented and proud to have been part of the program.

    Great way to spend time getting to know these stars

    Terry Gross just has this way of including you in her interviews. Listening in, you feel as if you belong in these conversations, finding yourself talking to the CD player. She opens up conduits of conversation that make it seem like regular people talking around a kitchen table after dinner. You are let in. I enjoyed having some of my queries addressed when she follows up and brings the interview along without my feeling that I was barging in. This sure beats catching the show on NPR in my car just before an appointment and being late while I sat and listened.
