Just finished listening to a Fresh Air minicollection of interviews of Maurice Sendek:

October 23, 2009
Author and illustrator Maurice Sendak's classic children's book Where the Wild Things Are is a perennial favorite.

It won the Caldecott Medal as the "most distinguished picture book of the year" in 1964, and was adapted into an opera two decades later. (Sendak earned his stripes as a designer on the opera production, working on the sets and costumes for the premiere production.) Now, Where The Wild Things Are comes to the big screen, directed by Spike Jonze.

Sendak's other children's books include In The Night Kitchen and Inside Over There.

This broadcast includes excerpts from 1986, 1993, and 2003.

@tsarstepan,
Good idea - I save author interviews sometimes. Lost links with my change of hard drive recently though.

@ossobuco,
Plus saving the podcasts too take up alot of hard drive space after awhile and I like to keep my iTunes relatively tidy.

@djjd62,
I knew I should save favorites on one of those link sharing sites (Delicious? forget the names right now) but I failed, yet again, to follow through.

I read bits and pieces and chapters of the first Freakonomics book and now with the sequel coming out, the authors held a fascinating interview with WNYC's Leonard Lopate, host of the aptly titled Leonard Lopate Show.

Quote:
Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner ask unexpected questions to challenge the way we think by looking at the hidden sides of things. Their new book SuperFreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prostitutes, and Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance, is a follow-up to their first book, Freakonomics.

Cornell West is such an outspoken and controversial character. He holds his own during Monday's interview with Stephen Colbert.

His interview with Tom Ashbrook during Friday afternoon's On Point With Tom Ashbrook show, is not as LOL funny as its shorter Colbert Report interview but in its longer format, West is still particularly enlightening and thought provoking.

Wasn't expecting to be fascinated by this author so I played it in the background while I a2k'ed. But it's worth a listen. And I would love to read the book.
