NOTE: Each time I've finished translating an interview fully, I'll post a big link here. Until then, you can see many partial interview translations here. There's a mountain of interviews to go through, so until I started this site, I had always cherry-picked cool interview stuff here and there. My goal is to finally get many of the interviews fully translated sometime for everyone to read.
