Bumping this after 5 years. A new interview with 5x5BLD WR holder Stanley Chapel is up:

There will be more interesting interviews coming out soon, as well as some updated interviews. All older interviews (most from 10 years ago), can be found here:

Thank you @pjk for bringing back the interviews. I remember seeing/looking at them several months back, but I had forgotten about them until now, so again thank you. I am really looking forward to seeing all upcoming interviews.

I do not know if you want to keep it a secret or not(so please do not feel like to have to say), but who do you have next on the list? and how often will these be released?

I just read the interview with Feliks Zemdegs, and that was fun to see the things that he said/was thinking back in 2010. I think that my favorite paragraph is

What is your favorite event, why?
My favourite event is probably the 3x3 speedsolve. It’s the main event of the WCA, and the one I practice most. Some other events that I practice a lot at the moment are 4x4 and 7x7. I've basically given up on 5x5, and OH, as I don't think I will be able to beat my official personal best's for a long time, if ever. I'm also getting into more memory oriented events, like multi-BLD, and big-cube BLD. My memory methods really suck though. I want to attempt a 5x5 BLD soon.

The bold part is my favorite from Feliks : ) I am looking forward to going through the rest soon.

I'll try to release one or two every month. It isn't a secret, but it depends on when the interviews happen. Upcoming are updated interviews with some more of the older speedsolvers, and one with one of the oldest members in our community at 80 years old. Stay tuned.

Just published is an updated interview with Erik Akkersdijk:

If you guys have any suggestions of who to interview next, please post your suggestions here.

Thank you for letting me know. I am looking forward to all the upcoming interviews. I enjoyed reading the one about Erik. It is funny/cool/nice to see how far cubing has come, even since I started in fall/winter of 2015.

Someone that I think would be cool to have/se an interview from would be Robert Yau. Does anyone else agree? If I think of others I will post that here as well.
