Terry Gross (above in the early 1990s) on Fresh Air’s 25th year as a daily NPR show:





We feel very fortunate — not many shows get to celebrate a 25th anniversary — because we’ve been given the greatest anniversary gift a show can ask for: you. Whether you’ve been listening for 25 years or just a few days, you have given us the privilege of marking this anniversary and continuing to produce Fresh Air. On behalf of all of us who have worked on the show over the past 25 years, our current crew and our alumni, thank you. A lot.

Best interviewer ever!

With Republicans in Congress still intent on pursuing a strategy similar to the failed one adopted by the Brits, this is a story that needs trumpeting. Austerity policies are self-defeating: they cripple growth and reduce tax revenues. The only way to bring down the U.S. government’s deficit in a sustainable manner, and put the nation’s finances on a firmer footing, is to keep the economy growing.
