1. build rapport by being honest
  2. take out your notebook and audio recorder after having asked permission, and after having had a genuine conversation
  3. have a conversation– not a simple Q & A and not an interrorgation
  4. listen carefully
  5. understand immensely
  6. get answers to questions you don’t want to regret
  7. show empathy, always

p.s. Journalism rules! Journalism 2 (J2) is “so far so good.”
