Matt Lauer on Interviewing

Apologies for the volume discrepancy, please crank it up. From an Piers Morgan Tonight interview where Donnie Deutsch filled in for Piers and had Matt Lauer on the show talking about interviewing.

"The worst thing you can do... is go in with an agenda and a set schedule of questions, and say "I've got these 10 questions, these are what I'm going to get through" because then what you're not doing is listening. And you're not taking the time to let the interview become organic and go where it should go"

So you gotta ask yourself. When it comes to shooting, are you the former or the latter? :)
