It was an interesting experience. Doug is an excellent interviewer.
The interesting part is that Doug and I come at interviewing from two whole different perspectives. I've been a reporter, producer, talk show host. To me, interviews are things you do, and then edit wholesale to find what you need, or at least focus ruthlessly.
Doug, of course, comes from anthropology. Interviews are more of a completist artifact, which is why he captured our conversation completely - every um, ah, and false start.
And Doug did a great job. But this last few days, it's been strange - I listen to myself talk, and think "Dang - I am scatterbrained, I do ramble, and I sometimes flirt unsuccessfully with coherence..."
