In my career, I’ve probably interviewed more than 10,000 people. Some interviews are memorable, some aren’t. Some are funny, some are serious, and some are, in all honesty, just “filler.” A few totally stand out. The common theme with all of them is you never know where they’re going to go. That’s what happened with the scariest interview I’ve ever done. There’s a clear cut “winner” in this category for me. It was an interview with actor Danny Trejo. Our chat started innocently enough, and ended up where Trejo almost beat the shit out of me on live radio. How did this happen? I’ve wondered the same thing many times over the years.
