My love for Terry Gross and NPR’s Fresh Air knows no bounds. During the past two weeks of travel, I had plenty of car and plane rides to catch up on new episodes of Fresh Air and listen to old favorites.
Here are some of my favorite interviews, in no particular order.
Jon Oliver tells the story of meeting his wife at the Republican National Convention, which “scientifically is the least romantic place on earth.” (Click here to listen.)
I’ve had a girl crush on Mindy Kaling ever since reading Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? Smart and endearing, she has accomplished so much at a young age. (Click here to listen.)
Jon Stewart talks about the Daily Show, the media, New Jersey and bar mitzvahs. (Click here to listen.)
It’s Meryl Street. (Click here to listen.)
I’ve never had strong feelings about Bill Hader, but I love this interview. The best part is when Terry Gross and Bill Hader become so excited discussing movies that they grew up watching. (Click here to listen.)
Hear Aziz Ansari talk about Parks & Rec and growing up in South Carolina. (Click here to listen.)
Tig Notaro has been through many rough times and is still hilarious. (Click here to listen.)
I love hearing Maya Rudolph talk about Bridesmaids, SNL, and her family. (Click here to listen.)
This is a beautiful interview. I suggest listening to it by yourself because you will probably tear up. I made the mistake of listening to it at work one time and ended up discretely crying in my cubicle. (Click here to listen.)
