To email or not email an interviewee

I’m curious about what my students have to say about this.

An interview should be a conversation. This one’s warm, rich, poignant and funny. Rosanne Cash on dad, music, brain surgery and Joan Didion. “Fresh Air.”

Amy has me thinking about interviewing. I’ve found some stuff that I’ll link to. But for your amusement — or your reassurance — here’s a blog posting about an interview that went badly. It’s so painful to listen to that it’s actually pretty funny. Luke Burbank, who is from here, once co-hosted an NPR show called The Bryant Park Project, which is where this is from. Now he’s the host of TBTL on KIRO.
