One of the things listed in my “some day” bucket list is interviewing people that I respect and want to learn from.

To make that a reality, I’ve been paying a lot of attention to how podcasters interview their guests. I’m slowly learning that asking smart and engaging questions is half the battle.

Of course, research into the subject critical, but there is certainly value in compiling interesting and insightful questions that I can use for future interviews.
