Descriptive phenomenology and collecting data with interviews: articles and book chapters

A couple of sources I found useful at least to me when trying to understand how collecting data with interviews work for descriptive phenomenology. Surprisingly, not an exhaustive list on the matter. If you have other good ones, do share them in the comments below. I’ll be happy to hear about them.
