  • 4. Interview Review
    • Before the Interview:
      • Research the guest, research the topic
      • Prescreen (if possible) but leave “cathartic” moments for the real thing
      • Arm yourself with the opinions of others about your guest
  • 5. Interview Review
    • Before the Interview:
      • Plan for beginning, middle, end
      • Know the focus, the central question
      • Plan precisely but expect the unexpected
  • 6. Interview Review
    • The “Art of the Ask”
      • Most powerful questions use:
      • Who? What? Where? When? Why? How?
      • Ask one question at a time
  • 7. Interview Review
    • The “Art of the Ask”
      • Statements work IF they force agreement/disagreement AND explanation
      • The next question often comes from careful listening to the preceding answer
      • Use silence as a vacuum to draw out lingering thoughts
  • 8. Interview Review
    • The “Art of the Ask”
      • Interrupt if the source is way off topic or clearly stalling
      • Press for clarity, details, examples, anecdotes
      • Press for accountability, proof and firm opinions
  • 9. Interview Review
    • The Advantage of Tape over Live:
      • You have room to roam without concern for dead-ends or wasted air time
      • You may re-ask a question or take some questions “out of order”
      • You are free to ask basic background or informational questions
      • You can choose whether to tape yourself
  • 10. Interview Review
    • The Advantage of Live over Tape:
      • The risk that anything can happen will energize the interview and appeal to the audience
      • You’ll cut to the chase and stick to core concerns so as not to waste time
