Fresh Air Weekend highlights some of the best interviews and reviews from past weeks, and new program elements specially paced for weekends. Our weekend show emphasizes interviews with writers, filmmakers, actors and musicians, and often includes excerpts from live in-studio concerts. This week:
Margo Price Sings About The Heartache And Beauty Of Small-Town America: Growing up in Aledo, Ill., the singer-songwriter longed to live somewhere "more romantic." Then she moved away and her outlook changed: "Now, when I go back, I see the beauty in it."
Maureen Corrigan Picks Books To Close Out A Chaotic 2017: Fresh Air's book critic says her 2017 list is chaotic in a good way. "These books zing off in all directions: They're fresh, unruly and dismissive of the canned and contrived."
As Marriage Standards Change, A Therapist Recommends 'Rethinking Infidelity': Esther Perel has spent the past six years focusing on couples who are dealing with infidelity. "It's never been easier to cheat — and it's never been more difficult to keep a secret," she says.
You can listen to the original interviews here:
You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
