Talking about personal tips and tricks for would-be investigators and interviewers, Punk Rock journalist Nardwuar talks about some of his experiences in this do-it-yourself speech.
One of Nardwuar's first interviews was with rap legend Snoop Dogg. The fact that Nardwuar knew nothing about Snoop Dogg made him particularly nervous and anxious, something that he says is a good thing. The less you know the better because it encourages you to find out more about the person you're interviewing.
Another seemingly straight-forward but nonetheless crucial attribute is the "just ask" mentality. Many opportunities and potentials are lost because people often scare themselves out of asking a question, removing any possibility for success before an attempt is made. While his methods are extremely unorthodox, his unconventional approach towards life has lead Nardwuar to conduct some of the most compelling interviews with some of the biggest names in music, politics and popular culture.
