I remember seeing these interviews 2 years ago but forgot about them. Pretty cool to watch them now looking back. LOTS of cool stuff.
The 2nd interview in particular was really cool to watch again looking back. He lost at JN that year when asked how he felt he basically said he was disappointed but that freestyle was focused on leveling up. Later that year he had a gamechanging FS similar to this year
Also asked about 4a and what the future holds for that. He says he’s really just doing it for fun and to try a different style but is mainly focusing on 3a. But at this point he had already won a few smaller 4a contests. Wins 4a worlds the following year
Also when asked to give beginning 3a advice he had no answer, I guess that’s how natural it came to him
