The art and science of the interview

The Worst Interview in the History of Radio Broadcasting

leave a comment »

The Bryant Park Project was an NPR morning show that ran from about 2007 to 2008 and was promptly replaced by The Takeaway, a much slicker, faster, newsier program.  The BPP, co-hosted by Faith Sailee, was an experiment in how stodgy NPR could reach a younger, edgier audience.  The fact that the show isn’t around anymore proves they did some things wrong.  But, this autopsy of the worst interview in the history of radio, is one Oscar winning work they should be commended for.  Watch the interview and its dissection, and try not to cringe.
