Terry Gross's Thank You

Terry Gross, the host of NPR's "Fresh Air", has this weird trait: She never has a "last question" nor does she give any hint that her interview is about to end... until she suddenly and abruptly says "Thank you for being with us." Often, important questions/follow-ups are never asked before this rude thank-you. Often, the guest is just stopping for breath when the Thank You is dished out. It's almost like her producer is bored, and asks her over the headphones to cut it short - RIGHT NOW!

You know the larger quirk of her interviews? They're done with Terry in one room, and her interviewee in another. They only have an audio link -- they can't see each other at all.
Oh - DID NOT know that... That might explain this little weirdness...
