Interviewing





I've learned that it's really, really hard to tell

people's stories in an honest wayand in a way

that's interesting to a passing listener. It's hard

to make the first phone call, it's hard to sit in

someone's living room and ask them about their

grief, and it's so hard to whittle that tape down

to a few moments. But it can be so incredible.
