Best Of: Oscar Isaac / Katie Couric

Saturday, 30 October

Oscar Isaac stars in the latest Paul Schrader movie, 'The Card Counter,' co-starred with Jessica Chastain in HBO's limited series 'Scenes from a Marriage,' and now is one of the stars of 'Dune.' We'll talk about growing up in an evangelical Christian family that was preparing for the apocalypse and how the death of his mother was quickly followed by the birth of his first child.

John Powers reviews the new documentary 'The Velvet Underground.'

Former 'Today Show' anchor Katie Couric spoke with Terry Gross about her early career in news and why she's done trying to appeal to everyone. "My goal in life isn't to please people anymore. ... I think if you're just likable, you're not very interesting," she says. Her new memoir is 'Going There.'
