Diane talks with Kendra Pierre-Louis, senior reporter on the podcast "How To Save A Planet," and a former climate reporter for the New York Times.
A note from Diane about today’s podcast:
Last weekend I went to see the new film, “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.” It’s about an unlikely friendship between Mister Rogers and a jaded magazine writer assigned to profile him — and, I loved it.
But I’m a bit biased. Fred Rogers is a hero to me. And the conversation we had in December 2002 is one of my favorite interviews. It was among the last Fred Rogers ever did – as he died two months later of stomach cancer.
This Thanksgiving, I thought I’d share some of that interview with you … along with an excerpt of a 2017 conversation with Tom Hanks, who masterfully brings Mister Rogers to life in “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.”
I hope you enjoy both of these interviews as much as I did.
- Fred Rogers Late actor, author
- Tom Hanks Actor, filmmaker and author. He plays Fred Rogers in the new film, "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood"
