Reflective Listening

In reflective listening, you get into rapport with your subject (the joke is: smile, lean forward and nod), occasionally repeat what they’ve said back to them, and let them go on. This interview is a great example of that.

Rielle Hunter (the mother of John Edwards’ love child) insisted that if she were to go public, she’d do it in her own words. This is, therefore, a verbatim transcript of the interview.

The technique is great, and okay, it’s maybe a little titillating in that, “ooh, here’s someone else’s dirty laundry in public” kind of way. Enjoy!
