the host should allow the speaker to finish her thoughts and sentences without interrupting. The guest should have preferrence for time. we can hear the host before and after the inteview. Some questions are simply a reiteration of the last comment. Please avoid the "Omg, oh god, soo cool, yeah," during conversation.
