and learning the meaning of generosity through conversation.
Good piece. Interviewing is a craft, to be sure. I found it so nerve-wracking in my younger years. Only eased into it over many years and through constant practice. BEING interviewed came naturally, because I already knew from personal experience what the interviewer wanted and tried to give it to them.
Helpful insights on the science and art of the interview. I liked that Julie Delpy interview, too. It was open-hearted on both sides of the conversation.
loved this and related so hard. and SO glad you're reading angela's work (and having her on the pod). she's THE BEST!
I heard that anecdote about Terry gross from a friend who had a private session with her years ago on the art of interviewing and I have never forgotten it. So neat to see it reappear here !
