You can watch the episode below (on the Tudou server in China) and also in Youtube version on Danwei.tv, where there are also links to other ways to watch (Tudou is slow when viewed from U.S. and Europe, while Youtube is not working properly in China).
If you understand Chinese and would like to hear the whole, unedited interview, click here (全采访纪录音频) to hear it on Tudou. You have to click the play button on a video player, but there's no video, only audio.
