The Oscar-nominated Disney/Pixar film Soul centers on Joe (voiced by Jamie Foxx), a middle school band teacher who longs to be a jazz musician.

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:

'Soul' Creators On Passion, Purpose And Realizing You're 'Enough': The Oscar-nominated film imagines a place where souls are matched with unique passions. Pete Docter and Kemp Powers say their movie is meant to challenge conventional notions of success and failure.

Out Of Prison But Still Trapped: Examining The 'Afterlife' Of Incarceration: There are 45,000 laws, policies and administrative sanctions in the U.S. that target people with criminal records. Reuben Jonathan Miller researches how they affect people's lives in Halfway Home.
