EPISODE DESCRIPTION

In 2018, Roy Wood Jr. explained how the years he spent performing in comedy clubs in the South and Midwest — sometimes in places where he felt unsafe as a black man — prepared him for 'The Daily Show.' Wood has a new Comedy Central special called 'No One Loves You.' Jazz critic Kevin Whitehead reviews the reissue of Eric Dolphy's 1963 'Musical Prophet' sessions. Actor Alan Alda is the recipient of the 2019 lifetime achievement award from the Screen Actors Guild. He spoke with Terry Gross in 1997 about M*A*S*H and his unusual childhood growing up in a burlesque club. TV critic David Bianculli reviews the TNT miniseries 'I Am the Night,' from 'Wonder Woman' director Patty Jenkins, starring Chris Pine.
