Best way to record an interview?

I need to record an interview that might run about 3 hours. I want to ensure good sound quality and I also want to make sure that whatever I'm using doesn't crap out midway through.

Also, if one method or another lends itself to easier transcription, that would be helpful too. I have no idea about any of this. Thanks!
