    The new season of Next Question is ... all about Katie!

    It’s a big season for Next Question with Katie Couric because this fall Katie is going to dive into … Katie! With the release of her memoir, “Going There,” on Oct. 26, Next Question will be sharing exclusive podcast-only conversations between Katie and some of her closest friends, family and confidants. And in the lead up to the book’s publication, Katie will explore some of the biggest news stories — and the people behind them — that she has covered over the decades. This season will take fans and listeners behind the scenes of both the making of her memoir and the making of her extraordinary (and sometimes tumultuous) personal and professional life. So, come for Katie’s signature curiosity and no holds barred interviews, but stay for her own revealing answers. New season starts Sept. 30 and brand new episodes every Thursday.

On this special bonus episode of Next Question with Katie Couric, Katie has a conversation with Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical officer to the president, about how we can push to the end of this collective nightmare.

    Summer book series: Sharon Stone

    Summer book series: Sharon Stone

    Sharon Stone is known for portraying a certain type of brash, cunning villain, like Catharine Tramell in “Basic Instinct,” Lori Quad in “Total Recall,” or, more recently, Lenore Osgood in the Netflix series “Ratched.” In reality though, Sharon Stone is shy and introverted and, despite her fame, has led a very private life. But now, the actor is in the midst of a very public and personal re-examination of that life in her memoir, “The Beauty of Living Twice.” On this episode of Next Question with Katie Couric, Katie and Sharon talk about the trauma she has endured, from being molested as a child, to the sexual harassment in Hollywood, to the stroke that nearly killed her in 2001 (and the interview Katie did with Sharon nearly 20 years ago). They also talk about the memoir writing process, life under the glare of the spotlight, and finding a new sisterhood — and inspiration — in the movie industry, post #MeToo. For more information about “The Beauty of Living Twice,” by Sharon Stone, or where to buy your copy go to Penguin Random House.

    Summer book series: Julianna Margulies

    Summer book series: Julianna Margulies

    Over the course of her impressive career, Julianna Margulies has starred on some wildly popular television shows. She played Nurse Carol Haloway on the definitive medica drama, ER. She starred as the disgraced politician’s wife, Alicia Florrick, in The Good Wife. And coming this September she’ll be joining the stellar cast of “The Morning Show.” The award-winning actress, and producer, is going behind the scenes of some of those shows and taking a look at the impact of her nomadic childhood and upbringing in her memoir: “Sunshine Girl: An unexpected life.” On this episode of Next Question with Katie Couric, Katie and Julianna dive into all of that — Julianna’s cross-continental childhood, her complicated hippie mom, the backlash she experienced leaving ER (and turning down a $27 million contract), why she just couldn’t shake Alicia Florrick and so much more. Find out more about Julianna’s memoir, “Sunshine Girl: An unexpected Life,” and where to get your copy at Penguin Random House.
    Katie and Julianna’s conversation was recorded by the Wilbur Theater in Boston, on behalf of Brookline Booksmith, as part of Julianna’s virtual book tour.

    Summer book series: Justin Baldoni

    Summer book series: Justin Baldoni

    Justin Baldoni is a producer, director and actor who is probably best known for his long-running character on “Jane the Virgin.” Across the show’s five seasons, Justin played Rafael Solano, the sensitive, reformed playboy who fell in love with the titular Jane, a virgin. But the actor, whose acting work tends to embody a certain type of shirtless machismo masculinity, is on a new mission to help change the way men — and society — think about masculinity. It’s an idea he first explored on social media, and then in a Ted Talk in 2017, and then in a web series and now in a memoir-ish book called “Man Enough: Undefining My Masculinity.” On this episode of Next Question with Katie Couric, Katie and Justin discuss the often toxic grip masculinity has on our society and what Justin thinks we can all do to change that. They also talk about Justin’s personal exploration — as a son, husband and father — of what it means to be a man. Find out more about “Man Enough” and where you can buy your copy at HarperCollins.

    Summer book series: Ursula Burns

    Summer book series: Ursula Burns

    Ursula Burns has had an impressive career that is often summarized by an historic achievement: that when she became the CEO of Xerox in 2009 she was the first every Black woman to head a Fortune 500 company. But there is so much more to Ursula’s career and life story, which is movingly detailed in her memoir, “Where You Are is Not Who You Are.” In it, Ursula gets very personal, sharing her childhood growing up in public housing in New York City, her Catholic-school days, her marriage, and, yes, her 30-year ascent to the tippy top of Xerox’s ladder. On this episode of Next Question with Katie Couric, Katie and Ursula talk about why writing that life journey was one of the most difficult things she has ever had to do, how she lead Xerox at a time when no one needed Xeroxing, and why we all need to continue to push the business world to diversify their ranks (and what corporations are missing out on if they don’t). You can find more about “Where You Are is Not Who You Are: A Memoir” and where you can buy your copy at HarperCollins.

I really enjoy the interviews, however the advertising has gotten very sophomoric and could definitely be handled with more maturity and class.

Miss your interviews, Katie!

Such a thoughtful, compassionate interview with Amanda Kloots. I followed Nick’s journey with Covid while my friend’s husband was suffering at the exact same time. He sadly passed away and then was distraught to hear about Nick’s passing. It’s hard to understand how otherwise healthy individuals could have died from this disease.
Amanda and Katie, you are such wonderful role models…strong and brave! I also became a single mom after my former husband died so I can certainly relate to being the only parent.
Looking forward to reading your book, Amanda and to the next interview, Katie.

No more

I used to really enjoy watching Katie Couric on the today show. But no more. She is nothing more than a leftist political hack and radical Trump hater and even advocates for reprogramming of his supporters. She no longer has my respect for her hyper-partisan, hateful drivel.
