Ten most interesting interviews of 2012: Artists, feminist scientists, comedians and queens

One of my favorite parts of being a reporter is getting to talk to strangers (and sometimes, friends). Even outside of assignments, I find myself interviewing waitresses, vending-machine repairmen and random people who have clearly not chosen to be in line in front of me at the grocery. This year, I came across some fascinating people -- either by the randomness of assignments or inspired by a long-time desire to get someone's story on paper -- and found that with each Q&A I did, I learned something. From pastors to musicians to scientists and wrestlers, everyone has a story to tell.
