3 tips for how to do interviews well

Beginning to find an up-tick of more people using wetoku.com — a very easy-to-use web app to record video interviews. (e.g. @jdblundell, @marcpayan, @decart w/ @charlestlee about Idea Camp Portland …)

Here are 3 good tips for how to do an interview well from 2 veteran radio interviewers:

  1. Listen to who you’re interviewing
  2. Don’t ask a question and then give an answer
  3. Give time to answer

[Parental advisory:: 1 example mentioned in this video may be too much for the easily offended]

Video via How to do a good interview with @docrock & @LanaitheDJ and linked at wetoku blog. And there was 100 invites to private-beta wetoku over there for the takin’.

[update: unfortunately, wetoku.com went dark and offline in Q1 2011, so this video interview is gone too]
