  • Interview Time!  Now bring that person on camera with you that you decided to interview!  Introduce them to us:  What's their name, how do you know them?  What do you like about them?  Is there anything silly about them you want to share?
  • Ask your interviewee the following questions:  What's your favorite food?  Where is the best place you've been on vacation?  What's an interesting fact about you?  After they answer these questions, if you have any comments or follow-up questions for them, let's hear it!
