Listening to How Good Interviewers Interview
Part of communications is both having good interviews to get a solid foundation as well as preparing others for public interviews.
The Turnaround is a podcast interviewing great interviewers, such as Larry King, Terry Gross, Werner Herzog, Audie Cornish, Brooke Gladstone and Anna Sale. Host Jesse Thorn talks to admired professionals about their careers interviewing famous and non-famous people, and they share how they get the best from people for a compelling interview.
And while the show pitches itself as "a perfect resource for a new generation of storytellers and journalists," it's also a super resource for professionals in marketing and communications, because we need to interview subject matter experts to get tot the heart of the story we aim to share.
I love podcasts and was excited to add this one to my mix.
