How do you prepare for interviews with guests?
To prepare for interviews with guests I do my research to learn as much as I can about them, look for other interviews and magazine articles, and try to ask questions that haven't been asked before.

No one's asked me that question before. And I also find that while we do send our guests questions in advance, I would say that half of the show are questions that come up during the course of the show. And often those are the best parts of the show. So go off script to once in a while."
