This week we continue with our Best of the Decades series:

'Fresh Air' Favorites: Jordan Peele: Peele talked about his Oscar-winning social thriller Get Out in this 2017 interview.

'Fresh Air' Favorites: Francis Ford Coppola: In 2016, the Oscar-winning director spoke about the studio battles he faced while filming The Godfather.

"A remarkable blend of empathy and warmth, genuine curiosity and sharp intelligence," says the San Francisco Chronicle.
