I generally prefer to write and will often decline interviews (both where I'm the subject and where I'm the interviewer) because I tend to sound "funny" to my own ear. I become extremely conscious of my tendency to use "uh" and "um" to fill space, and, when I say something that sounds weird, my brain ends up interrupting my thought process with the equivalent of a running commentary and critique. The strangeness and awkwardness I feel would probably subside if I simply practiced more, but, in the meantime, I just end up getting flustered and sometimes forget what I was going to say next. This happened a couple times during the interview, but, hopefully, I recovered quickly enough that it's not apparent. (When I listen to it, it's painfully obvious to me.)
The interview was conducted by phone and I had a hard time hearing (the volume was fairly low). It also appears that there was a slight delay of less than a second, but that threw things off a little as it was hard to detect pauses to interject comments or direct the interview to other questions.}?>
At one point in the interview, Chef Puck demonstrates how beautiful poultry looks when it comes out of the oven. I was surprised to find that I could not keep myself from playing along (even though I couldn't see anything since I was only on the phone) and actually uttered the word "wow". Luckily, after I received the video, the "wow" was not poorly timed. Good thing there was no video on my end or there might be evidence of my embarrassment (blushing for sure) at "selling out" so easily.
I wasn't sure how to redirect the conversation back to my questions... so I just did it (rather bluntly) once he had talked about the new oven for about five minutes. I spent the rest of the interview wondering if I had acted like a jerk by not letting him talk more about the oven, but, after watching the video, I think it turned out okay (or he's just a very gracious interviewee).
Anyway, I had a lot of fun doing the interview and I hope I asked some interesting questions. Have a look and let me know what you think.
