A good guide to interviewing

I came across this article the other day and thought I would share it with you. Interviewing really is the cornerstone of what we do in PNN, so the more we read, learn, and know about it...the better!

The other day, the intro class interviewed me about commuting to Penn High School on the bus and using my scooters. I was impressed and pleased by the types of questions students asked. I think that if we dedicated more time to preparing for, conducting, and editing interviews, we would tell more compelling stories in our channels.
