Strangely, I don't find a lot of correlation between our two lists although I certainly agree that Donna's tips are great. The two tips I like the best go hand in hand:
- Put your subject at ease, especially if he's not used to being interviewed, and
- ...be sure they know you will edit the file.
in any case, making your interviewee comfortable goes a long way to making the show better and generating good karma between you and the company.
