TED X Nardwuar
If you have ever seen a Nardwuar interview then you know this man is unparalleled when it comes to research. He goes so in depth for an interview that the people he interviews are constantly blown away by what he knows about them. I think the best part about his talk in this video is how all of his explanations for his interview opportunities are, "Because I asked." You would be surprised what some asking can do for you.
