Behind The 'Screams' Of Tyler Perry's Madea Halloween Movie

Atlanta-based director and actor Tyler Perry is prolific in stage, television and big-screen projects. Many are produced at Tyler Perry Studios at Atlanta's former Fort MacPherson. I sat down with Perry to discuss his latest film "Boo! A Madea Halloween." Rickey Bevington: Tyler Perry, thank you for joining me. Tyler Perry: Thank you for having me here Rickey. I appreciate it very much. This is very NPR (laughs). Bevington: (laughs in response) Improv is a big part of your process on set for the layperson. Can you talk about the difference between shooting a movie scene and shooting an improv? Perry: Shooting a movie scene is scripted word for word. You know exactly what you're going to say and exactly where it's going at any moment. The improv scenes [are] scripted but I allow the freedom to just let it roll. Some of the funniest things came up out of just letting the camera roll when we're just talking off the top of our head. Like a “hoe-01(k).” Those moments were really, really

Drive-By Truckers: Tiny Desk Concert

In music, we can escape the cruelties of the world or face them. There's no wrong way about it, but recently the members of Drive-By Truckers, a band that's long toed the line between a good time and a hard look at life, found they could no longer work purely in metaphor. American Band holds a direct mirror to a set of realities in this country with the same grace and rough-hewn wisdom that's guided the band all along. But in this compulsion to speak to the right now, there is an anger behind these songs never heard before. Drive-By Truckers: Tiny Desk Concert In an emotional performance at the NPR offices, Patterson Hood's gravelly voice — capable of the quietest coos and the loudest hellraising — finds a new space, one that's shaken and vulnerable. He sings both "Guns Of Umpqua" and "What It Means," songs not just about gun violence, but about the persons it affects: The former is about the horrific shooting at Umpqua Community College in rural Oregon last year, and the latter about

Should HBCU's Cash In On 'Guarantee Games?'

One aspect of college football has received a significant deal of negative attention: “guarantee games.” These are matchups where a large school pays a smaller school a significant sum of money to schedule a matchup against them. Some claim that historically black colleges and universities are often forced to take guarantee games to help fund their struggling athletic departments, which puts players at risk against unfair competition. We speak with Kenn Rashad, editor and publisher of HBCU Sports and Morehouse athletic director Andre Patillo about "guarantee games" and the overall state of athletics programs at HBCUs.

GSU Professor Uses Virtual Reality To Sooth Social Anxiety

Over fifteen million people in the United States deal with social anxiety disorder. SAD is an extreme fear of being scrutinized and judged in social situations.

Georgia State psychology professor Page Anderson has developed a new technology to help people with social anxiety by using virtual reality. Her technology simulates real life settings and helps patients treat their anxiety virtually before confronting real-world situations. We sit down with Professor Anderson to learn more about how VR can bring relief and help cure severe anxiety.

Report: 857 Guns Stolen Last Year From Cars In Atlanta

You may have heard about the Iron Pipeline. It's an underground network used to ship guns from states like Georgia with relatively lax gun laws to other states with tighter regulations. Many of these weapons are purchased legally in the South, but some are stolen. A new investigative report finds Atlanta has an alarming rate of guns stolen from cars. Reporter Brian Freskos of The Trace joins us to explain this trend in local crime.
