SynopsisONE NIGHT ONLY! September 27, 2004 Terry Gross, host of National Public Radio's daily afternoon program Fresh Air, has interviewed the most celebrated figures of our time — from John Updike to Johnny Cash to Chris Rock to members of the Steppenwolf ensemble — and is always able to get guests to reveal themselves in fascinating ways. In an exclusive Traffic event, Terry Gross shares her techniques for a great interview and tells a bit about who she is and why she does what she does; she’ll play clips from noted interviews, read excerpts from her forthcoming book All I Did Was Ask: Conversations with Writers, Actors, Musicians, and Artists and engage in a rare audience Q & A. Steppenwolf's Traffic series brings together artists of all disciplines and casts them as storytellers in one-night only presentations on the Steppenwolf stage. Traffic provides an intimate and unique intersection of language, lyrics, poetry and music, crating a fresh perspective on expressing the American story. Chicago Public Radio (91.5 FM) re-broadcasts the Traffic events as part of their partnership with Steppenwolf.
