Terry Gross is one of the American greats, when it comes to the art of the interview. (Studs Terkel being another, but his style was different and from a different time; I used to be a fan of Jian Gomeshi but that ended horribly; and Jon Stewart is no longer active.)
Her approach, her understanding, and her ability to ask sensitive questions in the right light have exalted her to rare status. What struck me about this article was the many interviewees who had long dreamed of one day sitting across from Terry Gross. I count myself among them.
