The Interview

Understand the process

The interview is a chance for the Speaker to discuss the things which matter most to them. The Archive has prepared over three hundred questions which will be asked and discussed in the comfort of your home. The process may take multiple days as the answers are never rushed. The recording is then edited, reviewed, and uploaded to the Database. A physical and digital copy is then made for the Speaker to have.
