Timothy Olyphant, Norbert Leo Butz, Victor Williams and Marin Ireland in Justified: City Primeval

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:

Timothy Olyphant on 'Justified,' 'Deadwood' and marshals who interpret the law: Olyphant is best known for portraying lawmen in cowboy hats. He reprises the role of deputy U.S. marshal Raylan Givens in the sequel Justified: City Primeval, based on Elmore Leonard's novel.

Why the crack cocaine epidemic hit Black communities 'first and worst': "We won't heal until we make sense of the crack epidemic," Donovan X. Ramsey says. His book, When Crack Was King, examines the drug's destructive path through the Black community.
