Stephen Colbert vs. Terry Gross

Terry Gross is celebrating 25 years on the air (check her out at noon weekdays on NCPR) and she sat down to talk with Stephen Colbert.  There’s definitely some kind of zeitgeisty-public radio-talkshow host critical mass going on here.

Check it out.

    I thought she was younger but then when thinking about it, I often identify an actor by their voice before I identify them by their face. This works both when hearing/seeing an actor in an old movie or TV program before they became famous.
    The reverse can also happen.
    As to the program: poor Bill and how weird can Grover be.

    Those programs seem to be blocked at their US outlets for Canadians. But many are available on a different distribution site instead.

    Not to shill for them, but just to say where that content can be seen in Canada, try “Comedy Central”. Here is the episode with Terry Gross (it is the third segment into the program — I hope the embedded link works.)

    Fun as that was, the first segment was even better: Stephen Colbert learns how to make a children’s book with Maurice Sendak (of “Where the Wild Things Are” fame).

    And it is a “zeitgeisty-public radio-talkshow host critical mass going on here” because Gross has had her own memorable interviews with Colbert and Sendak on her program, Fresh Air.

    Nope, nope. Sorry, I messed up!

    Try this for the specific episode with Sendak and Gross:
    http://www.thecomedynetwork.ca/Shows/TheColbertReport?videoPackage=102808

    And that should be “Comedy Network” not Comedy Central.

    No embedding this time as it didn’t work too well in my previous post.
