Interview style and format used in Coders at Work

Hi Peter,
What is the interview style and format you use in Coders at Work?

1. Do you prepare the same (or similar) set of questions for all interviewees or you prepare different questions for different interviewees based on their background?
2. The interview style is
* Story-telling - ask questions and let the interviewee explain/tell stories/express their views
or
* Conversation - ask questions and exchange your opinions with the interviewee
or
* Discussion - ask questions and discuss with the interviewee

Thanks.

I had a set of common questions which I then customized for each interviewee. The interviewing style was probably a combination of your story-telling and discussion styles with a bit of conversation. Some interviewees were more apt to tell stories without prodding from me; others were more reticent. And sometimes we'd have a conversation where I'd ask talk about my take on things but in the editing I tried to get my own opinions out of the way as much as possible.

Many thanks. I think it should be enjoyable to hear stories from experts and discuss with them.
