An Interview About Interviewing

Tod Maffin (apparently a raging metrosexual) has done a great, 10-minute interview with Canadian radio institution Michael Enright. Interestingly enough, it's about the art of the interview:

Enright: We rely too much on what we think the listener wants to hear, rather than what the interviewer wants to hear. It's a conversation and the listener is eavesdropping.

This ought to be essential reading for aspiring journalists (in any medium), and anybody who ever might give an interview in the media. There's also a couple of bizarre interviewing anecdotes that will be amusing to just about anybody.
