  • Roseann Solnica

    Highly recommend. She asks the right questions to get the actors and directors to really talk about the craft of acting rather than the glib self aggrandisement that is part and parcel of most celebrity interviews.

    Terry Gross is one of the best interviewers in the business - hands down. This isn't the first time I've heard many of these movie personalities interviewed but Terry brings out so much more than anyone else - and every interview offered unique insights into the perspectives of the subjects. Actually, the questions are often as interesting as the answers. Very interesting...Highly recommend.

    I gradually "discovered" Terry Gross on public radio; 88.5 FM in the Washing DC area and found her gentle prodding produced some interesting interviews. She takes on all sorts and asks some odd questions, the kind you want to ask a friend, sort of personal, and does it in an endearing way. This collection of parts of over a dozen interviews is entertaining and interesting.
