For a breath of Fresh Air, tune in daily to National Public Radio for Terry Gross's popular interview program of that name. Or better still, attend this January Series presentation to hear how Ms. Gross brings her guests to reveal what makes them tick through her insightful questioning. She has even been known to push guests in unlikely directions resulting, from time to time, in "walk-offs" offended by her direct questioning. At the end of her presentation you might have the opportunity to ask the best cultural interviewer in America questions of your own. Terry Gross talks about her techniques for good interviews and tells a bit about who she is and why she does what she does. She also presents her views on why the media is the way it is and where the media and our national dialogue are headed.
