“The best way to cultivate a sensibility of what makes for a good [radio] interview is to pre-tape your interviews and set aside large amounts of time to edit them down to half the length they start at. Because it makes you think really critically about where the wasted language is in that interview, when your questions have gone on too long, when your guest has gone off track, what you can fix with editing and what you can’t, and it cultivates the ear you need to start listening critically to other people’s interviews, to start editing in real time when you are listening to other people’s interviews and then to start editing yourself in real time when you are conducting interviews.”
Brian Edwards-Tiekert has been hosting and producing KPFA’s hour long news and public affairs program, “Upfront.” He joins us on this episode of the podcast to talk about his approach to the work of making public service, community radio with a local and international focus.Show Notes:
