Carly Simon on the 2nd hour of The Diane Rehm Show Tuesday
Let's start with the good news, tomorrow, 2nd hour, the guest is Carly Simon.
Today? The first hour guests were E.J. Dionne, Vin Weber and Janet Hook. The second hour? Jodie Foster.
The Jodie interview. Jodie was funny and warm; however, the interview never really got going. There was no need for clips and the one for Silence of the Lambs was way too long.
It would have been nice if Home For The Holidays had been mentioned. Jodie did direct that film, after all.
Mainly I was left with the impression that Diane didn't really know Jodie's body of work. It could have been a free wheeling discussion -- Jodie seemed up for it. Instead Diane seemed confused and had this practice of asking the same question over and over. Was it three times she asked Jodie about doing TV?
