There’s the political stage, but the domestic front as well, and everyone trying to survive isn’t it? I think when you go to create a new world and you have a new microcosm of society it becomes very clear what people’s greatest desires are – and you see very quickly the people that want power, and want authority, and want prestige. And some people just want a peaceful simple life, and I think that’s what this is: a study of human nature, and what different people are craving, and what lengths they’ll go to, to get and protect what they want.

Here’s the first of my two Jamestown interviews, both of which are very special to me – they’re the first interviews I did in public! This set specifically, actually, is the first of the two I did, so the other was a little easier in that regard.

I was very lucky, and very appreciative, that those first in-person interviews were with people who were as lovely as Sophie, Stuart, Steven and Luke (sure, we can be on a first name basis, why not) – you always hear those stories of, like, diva actors who’d kick up some fuss or another, but these guys couldn’t be further from that. Wonderfully nice and accommodating while I was doing my best to hide how utterly terrified I was.

I’d love to interview them again, actually – maybe for Jamestown series 3, come to think of it. Not because I think, like, I’d do a better job of it and want to take a second try (I probably would do better, though I do also think this is a really, really good interview), but because they were really good interviewees, and I think it’d be neat to talk to them again.
