The polaroids included in your interviews give an intimate feel - it’s as if we’re smoking a joint with our friend. Who takes the photos?
I take all the polaroids, and thanks. That’s the point. In these interviews, it’s usually just the subject and myself, hanging out, having a real conversation, taking some pics. Just like you might with your friends anyway.
How do you approach interviewing someone? Are you just like “Hey, wanna smoke?”
Yeah, ‘hey Cher, wanna get high?’ Not really. I’m approaching people who are doing cool work, asking if we can have a conversation about something that’s interesting or important to them. And by the way, it’s 420-friendly.
Who would be your dream subject to smoke a joint with?
Think I can get Neil Degrasse Tyson and Tilda Swinton together?
Who do you think desperately needs to smoke a joint?
My mother! Just kidding. Pass.
Who is your next guest? Anything exciting coming up?
I am really excited about the interviews coming up, which feature a mix of award-winning authors, Michelin-awarded chefs, musicians on the rise, thought-provoking artists, community leaders. I’m open to suggestions, too. Who would you want to smoke a joint with? DM me!
You just launched your website for the series, www.onejointwith.com. Where do you see this venture going, in your wildest dreams?
If I’m lucky, I get to keep having real conversations with people forever, and I’d like to ultimately create something with what I learn from those. Hmm…What’s better than a hefty book? I live for books. Something you could get lost in while you, say, smoke a joint.
