Fresh Air Weekend highlights some of the best interviews and reviews from past weeks, and new program elements specially paced for weekends. Our weekend show emphasizes interviews with writers, filmmakers, actors, and musicians, and often includes excerpts from live in-studio concerts. This week:

Margo Martindale: A 'Justified' Moonshine Matriarch: Margo Martindale plays Mags Bennett, the leader of a law-defying Appalachian family in the FX series Justified. The Emmy-nominated actress talks about playing Mags — as well as her other roles in Paris, Je T'Aime and Million Dollar Baby.

Will Arnett's Newborn Sitcom Keeps Him 'Up All Night': Will Arnett is a sleep-deprived, stay-at-home dad in the new NBC comedy series about the perils of first-time parenting. Arnett also talks about his roles as Gob Bluth in the FOX sitcom Arrested Development, and Alec Baldwin's rival on NBC's 30 Rock.
