As a ghostwriter, Sydney Writers’ Festival Guest Curator Michael Robotham spent countless hours interviewing subjects in an attempt to bring their inner lives within reach and onto the page.

But the art of the interview has many facets, and many different requirements depending on whether it’s approached from a journalistic, storytelling or entertainment perspective. Michael speaks with one of Australia’s best interviewers, Andrew Denton, and asks what makes a great interview and how to get the best out of a subject.

This event is open captioned.
