Weekend Breath of Fresh Air: A Conversation with Andrew Scott; The Evolution of Cars into Gendered Technology

Fresh Air Weekend features the best interviews and reviews from the past weeks, as well as new program elements designed for weekend listening. The weekend show focuses on interviews with writers, filmmakers, actors, and musicians, and often features excerpts from live in-studio concerts. This week, Andrew Scott discusses how he humanizes the character of Tom Ripley in the Netflix adaptation of The Talented Mr. Ripley, emphasizing the importance of advocating for characters rather than judging them.

Contrarian author Lionel Shriver’s new novel, “Mania,” is examined for its satire of anti-intellectualism in an alternative America where discrimination against those perceived as less intelligent is being challenged. Nancy Nichols’ book, “Women Behind the Wheel,” explores the gendered nature of cars and how they symbolize different things for men and women.
