This is my fifth year working as an MNN writer, and I've had the pleasure over the years to talk to a lot of really interesting people doing cool things with their lives. I've interviewed entrepreneurs, architects, big thinkers, activists, rappers, journalists, photographers, programmers, filmmakers — even a scuba diver and a worm farmer. Every one of the 38 interviews is worthy of a read, but understanding that time is a precious and finite thing, I included the titles in the following list to aid your reading selection.
