Jessica Biel gave a performance in last year's Sundance Film The Truth About Emanuel that surprised those who hadn't been paying attention to her quietly impressive work over the past few years. We talk a bit about the film and the state of women in Hollywood. Rick Hall is one of the most significant record producers in history, having founded FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, recorded classics like Percy Sledge's "When a Man Loves a Woman" and Wilson Pickett's "Mustang Sally" (among thousands of others), and jump-started Aretha Franklin's storied career. He recounts some favorite stories form his more than a half century in the music business. And in our Turn Me On segment, we revisit a Daytrotter session by a band just on the edge of superstardom — the 2009 visit by The Civil Wars.
