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:
Patricia Arquette Explores The 'Toxic Codependency' Of Munchausen By Proxy: Arquette plays a Missouri woman who falsely convinced the world that her child was seriously ill, in the Hulu series The Act. She says it was "very weird" getting into the character's head.
David Carr's Daughter On The 'Grand Caper' Of Life: Erin Lee Carr says her father's death "is the most profound loss I will ever experience." Carr's new memoir about family, addiction, mentorship and memory is called All That You Leave Behind.
