On this Christmas Eve, Press Play re-airs some favorite interviews of the year. Sopan Deb shares how his Indian heritage informs his standup comedy. The documentary “Mr. SOUL!” looks at a 1970s-era TV show with a then-radical idea to portray the complexity of Black culture. “Talking Heads” frontman David Byrne talks about “American Utopia,” his Broadway show that turned into a film.
