with as much content as this community creates, we're usually given very little insight into what goes on behind the scenes. with legendary megawads like AV, the only sort of "documentary" that the rest of the community gets is the credits txt, and with other megawads it's even less.
this is where TANGO TV* comes in. we'll be conducting somewhat regular interviews with talented figures in the Doom community, via Skype voice-chat, to give the rest of the community an in-depth look at the minds behind the talent. this is not limited to mappers, though; it would be just as great to hear from our musicians, artists, speedrunners, CTF players, etc.
*somebody please suggest a better name** because this one is just a dumb filler; something silly will do

if you contribute content to the community in some form and are interested in being interviewed, just drop us a line in this here thread and we'll put you in line! and when the times comes, we'll set up a nice informal Skype date and let you tell us a bit about your work. this includes you, demo-recorders and competitive players! if you have a preference regarding who interviews you (Tango & alfonzo, Tango & guest, alfonzo & guest, etc), just go ahead and post that too. if you've no preference then we'll probably just do things based on availability.
we're changing this role up a bit, as we originally intended to have the interviews in their entirety conducted by somebody new. it has since been pointed out that some consistency (and therefore familiarity) would really help us out, so generally we'll try to have interviews done by either myself (Tango) & st. alfonzo together or separately. for cases in which only one of us will be present, if you would like to appear as a guest interviewer, please let us know.
for these interviews to work, we need questions to ask! we'll update the thread when an interview is upcoming, which gives you a chance to PM me, Tango, any questions you want to hear that person answer. if you are so inclined to post it in the thread instead/in addition to PM, feel free to do so.

i'd just like to stress again that these interviews are informal, so there's no need to be mic-shy. if you're comfortable asking/answering a few questions and having a healthy discussion, we need you.
now volunteer, minions.
