Do you have any advice for interviewing RPs? I feel like it should be easy but it always trips me up. Approach people on the street? Interview friends of friends?
It’s tough. I think the most important thing is to find about five people who are affected by/have a specific interest in your topic, and try to spread them out. When I was writing about national issues I’d try to strive for geographic/ethnic/gender diversity. If you were writing an education story, I’d shoot for a teacher, a parent, a principal, a teacher someplace else, and maybe a community activist. Does that help?
