On the next Fresh Air, Terry talks with the star of The Deuce, Maggie Gyllenhaal. She plays a sex worker who becomes an actress in, and then a director of, porn films. As a producer of the series, Gyllenhall has applied her feminist point of view to how the character is portrayed, and how the sex scenes are handled. Season 3 of HBO’s The Deuce starts Monday. Join us.
Fresh Air can be heard weekdays at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM (and again at 12:00 am Tuesday through Friday)! / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the FREE KRCB Mobile App which you can download from the App Store & Google Play.
