Gyllenhaal stars in the HBO series 'The Deuce' as Candy, a sex worker who becomes a porn actress and then porn director in 1970s New York City. She says the series is about the "imbalance of power between men and women — in terms of sex, in terms of art, in terms of business." Gyllenhaal talks to Terry Gross about why she insisted on being a producer for the show, the #MeToo movement, and how she and her colleagues addressed the allegations against co-star James Franco.
Also, TV critic David Bianculli reviews the new 10-part Netflix series 'Maniac,' starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone.
