The best thing about my time working in newspapers is that interviewing was easy. You can have a semi-formal conversation and turn it into a great story for your publication. Interviewing for podcast (or video) is harder because without the question, the answer doesn’t always make sense. And I don’t want to include voiceovers in my podcasts, I want it to be all about the bloggers.
I’m trying to get my interviewees to include my question in their answer but after half an hour - my interviews have been lasting an hour so far - they’ve forgotten and the conversation has turned into just that, a conversation rather than a formal interview. I prefer it that way, and so do they, it’s more fun just chatting about your experiences, I think, but this may well hinder my podcasts. We’ll see.
