Terry Gross said she used to decline photo shoots because she wanted radio listeners to decide for themselves what she looked like. But in the Internet age, it's pretty impossible to keep that air of mystery. Photo courtesy of WHYY, by Miles Kennedy.

* Marc Maron interviews Terry Gross. Marc Maron, the comic and host of the incredibly popular “WTF” podcast, and Terry Gross, host of the incredibly popular NPR’s “Fresh Air,” came together a couple of weeks ago when Maron turned the tables on veteran interviewer Gross. I loved that you could hear Gross’ hesitation but she was a great sport, opening up about her brief first marriage, why she has chosen to not have children, and her current husband. I listened to two versions: the 45-minute “Fresh Air” version, and the 90-minute “WTF” version. Loved them both. I think it’s human nature that we want someone rather mysterious, like Gross, to finally reveal herself. This was like a memoir in radio form.
