    I like these Talk to Tara segments. You get to hear interviews with the authors and leaders in their areas. Tara takes in what each one says openly, thus providing a well rounded presentation. Its always pleasent and interesting, and that's because its Tara. The empowering concepts presented are good to hear about and if you want to investigate further, you have choices. Thanks Tara!

  • Writers Speak: A Collection of Interviews with Writers on Fresh Air with Terry Gross

    "Writers Speak"

    Overall

    Endlessly fascinating and well produced. Gross is a great interviewer and leads rather than dominates the conversation.

  • "Far more hits than misses."

    5 of 5 helpful votes

    I've been subscribing to TTBOOK for months now, and I have to say that I (generally) enjoy the show.

    There are some segments that are as boring as bat-droppings ... but I'd say I find about 80% of the segments worth listening to.

    I use the program as a 'diversion' as I take my daily walk - and sometimes I have to keep walking until an item finishes - the perambulatory equivalent of what NPR calls a 'driveway moment', I guess.

    It's certainly more consistent than This American Life, and is timeless when compared to ATC or Morning Edition - which date badly if you don't listen with a day or so of broadcast.

    Overall, I'd put it at around 4 stars.

    What does today's sci-fi mean for our real-life future? Cyberpunk author Neal Stephenson argues that it's time to get over our love of dystopia. A class at MIT searches sci-fi classics for technologies they can invent right now, although maybe they shouldn't. Geoengineers take a tip from Carl Sagan – who saw a green future for Mars – to see if we can save Earth. And we meet some scientists who think that if we ever want to see the stars, we'd better start building the starship.
