Colin Jost and Michael Che will host the Emmy Awards on Monday, Sept. 17, on NBC.

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:

Michael Che And Colin Jost On 'SNL,' Hosting The Emmys And Hating Twitter: The SNL head writers have different attitudes toward co-hosting the Emmy awards Monday night. Jost admits to being nervous, but Che says, "It's comedy! ... There's nothing to be afraid of."

After Hurricane Maria, Chef José Andrés Had A 'Crazy Dream' To Feed Puerto Rico: The James Beard award-winning chef started out preparing food for doctors and nurses. Then calls started pouring in from across the island. The message was clear, he says: "The island is hungry."
