Fresh Air From WHYY
Fresh Air with Terry Gross, the Peabody Award-winning weekday magazine of contemporary arts and issues, is one of public radio's most popular programs. Each week, nearly 4.5 million people listen to the show's intimate conversations broadcast on more than 500 National Public Radio (NPR) stations across the country, as well as in Europe on the World Radio Network. Though Fresh Air has been categorized as a "talk show," it hardly fits the mold. Its 1994 Peabody Award citation credits Fresh Air with "probing questions, revelatory interviews and unusual insights." And a variety of top publications count Gross among the country's leading interviewers. The show gives interviews as much time as needed, and complements them with comments from well-known critics and commentators. Fresh Air is produced at WHYY-FM in Philadelphia and broadcast nationally by NPR. -

From the Archives: Sacha Baron Cohen On 'Borat'
In 2007 while promoting the film 'Borat,' director/writer/star Sacha Baron Cohen did almost all press in character as Borat. We were lucky enough to get an interview with Cohen out of character, and it ended up being a staff favorite. We noticed the audio it isn't online, so here it is.

Goodbye, John Sheehan!
We're so sad to say goodbye to Fresh Air producer John Sheehan today. He's worked with us for 9 years, writing copy, editing a zillion interviews, and producing Fresh Air Weekend. John also created a podcast for kids, The Radio Adventures of Eleanor Amplified, which dropped last year. You can listen to a little bit of it here, as part of our goodbye montage. We'll miss you, John.
✋ Yay! You have heard it all
