Lori Fredrich interview reflection
Interviewing food and dining writer Lori Fredrich gave me the opportunity to practice multimedia storytelling. Recording the interview and listening to it in retrospect helped me to realize things that I need to work on to become a more effective interviewer. I think I could have waited longer between questions to think of more better follow up questions. I found myself a few times thinking about what I was going to ask next instead of fully focusing on the question at hand. However, I think I excelled at researching Lori and her accomplishments and using this to help guide our conversation. Having that background knowledge on her made our conversation more personal and made it easier to initially establish trust.
