Question: Whom would you like to interview, and what would you ask?
Josh Lieb: That’s a dumb question. Who would be the one person I would; I really don’t know. I . . . There are a lot of people I’d like to talk to. You don’t . . . There’s nobody I’d like to talk to that much. Nobody’s leaping to mind.It’s more than sitting down and actually being with that person. It would be more interesting to sit down with, you know, Albert Einstein or Julius Caesar.
It’d be more actually fun to be in the room with that person than it would be to ask them any particular question. Like there’s no. I have nobody. . My grandfather. I like my grandfather. I wish he were alive, so that’s what I wish.
