Sometime soon, I’m going to start doing podcasts. They’re going to be interviews. I’m thinking of doing it on video, like my own version of Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, only not necessarily comedians. Probably not with cars. Probably getting hot chocolate.
Here’s how I’m thinking of going about it:
- Make a list of 100 people I’d like to have a conversation with.
- Download a month’s worth of Fresh Air with Terry Gross.
- For each episode, read the book or watch the (latest) movies, or listen to the music of the people being interviewed for the show before listening to the podcast and come up with my own interview questions. Then, listen to the interview and compare notes. This is for practice.
- Start inviting the people on my list, now that I know how it’s done.
One of the people on my list to interview for my Podcast would be Terry Gross.
