What’s the secret …
To a good interview?
Some would say ample research on the topic you’re trying to discuss. Others would say having a good set of questions. Still others would say inviting in a good guest. But for me, the secret to a good interview starts with the host. It isn’t so much the questions or the answers as it is the good conversation to be had. And really, for that to occur: Is there really a need for anyone else? Answer: I would say yes. The caveat is you better be comfortable having a dialog with yourself first. And that’s why in many ways this is a breakthrough interview.
Among the topics we cover: My new idea for a great app, new details on the Time of Great Phonelessness (i.e. Before Phones), how phones stole our memories, the difference between prescient and clairvoyant, why a ranger kept returning to the swamp and what made him stop, the difference between a tree and a large blade of grass, why cigarettes are healthier than cell phones, how banjos went viral, and more.
