I have a hard time remembering most of the characters' names on DARK, except for the missing boys because their names are almost Mads Mikkelsen, who looks almost exactly like the detective.
Plunging my head into this show is my strategy for avoiding all of your LAST JEDI spoilers.

What was your first job as a journalist?

Newspaper reporter. I'll always be grateful toward my bosses for hiring me at a time when jobs, in particular newspaper jobs, were scarce.

How is social media changing news?

It's turned every organization into a breaking news outlet. You are always right on deadline, and everyone in the world is your competitor.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Tintin. Sometimes he's too involved and becomes the story, but he chases a lead to the ends of the earth. That's passion.
