Interviewly contains tons of interviews with interesting people, pulled from Reddit but organized in an easier-to-follow manner.
Interviewly is an archive of celebrity Reddit AMAs organized in way that makes more sense to non Redditors. For those unfamiliar, Reddit has a subsection of its site that allows users to ask them any question (AMA = “ask me anything”). In recent years, AMAs have been a popular format for celebrities to communicate directly with fans online. AMAs are basically fan-generated interviews, and Interviewly organizes them the way you might expect a normal interview to be structured online. Scrolling through the AMA for Jerry Seinfeld, for instance, reads like an interview in a magazine — questions followed by answers in a clean format. The words are all the same, the way its presented is different.
Interviewly also makes it easier to find past AMAs than it is on Reddit. The site is organized into several categories, including Film And TV, Music, Authors, Sports, Tech, Politics and Other. Popular and Recent AMAs are also prominently displayed on the Interviewly homepage. The site doesn’t replace the Reddit experience of being able to upvote/downvote questions and answers and you can’t ask your own questions, either, but it’s a great resource to read some interesting, unfiltered responses from names you’ll recognize. Tons of actors, musicians, and other personalities — including U.S. President Barack Obama — have done AMAs on Reddit. Interviewly has all of these AMAs well-organized on a well-designed site. It’s worth looking through for old AMAs, even though you’ll have to use Reddit for the live ones.
