Radio interview with Streep at Indiana University

When Meryl was honored with an honorary doctorate at Indiana University in April, its president Michael McRobbie interviewed her for a public media program known as "Profiles."  It was just made available a couple days ago and can be heard here.

Of course the interview includes some lovely pearls of wisdom from Streep.  When I found that this interview had been published, I got a bit excited because at first I was thinking it was the full video from her UMass Lowell interview last month, where she apparently mentioned that she's received two of the best scripts she's ever read in the last year.  I wanted to hear her exact words.  There are more sections of that interview now on Youtube, but unfortunately not that part.   The Indiana interview is nice too, though.  Enjoy.


  1. I forgot to mention that Meryl was asked to pick three songs that would play during breaks. The first she chose just happens to be one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite artists...Song to the Moon by Renee Fleming from Dvorak's Rusalka. Joe and I are going to see Fleming in Capriccio at the Lyric Opera of Chicago this fall. Can't wait!
