Over the course of two decades as a journalist and copywriter, I've been fortunate to land hundreds of interviews with celebs, influencers and experts for articles, stories, blog entries, et al. Kobe Bryant, Dr. J, Nick Offerman, Buzz Aldrin, Eva Longoria, Rashida Jones... they've all been on the other side of my interrogation skills. Some of it's luck; some of it good timing. But almost every time, it's about understanding how to play the game -- and how to do it the right way so you don't end up irking people.
