Description

In WNYC's new podcast series, award-winning actor Alec Baldwin gives the listener unique entrée into the lives of artists, policy makers and performers. Alec sidesteps the predictable by taking listeners inside the dressing rooms, apartments, and offices of people such as comedian Chris Rock, political strategist Ed Rollins and Oscar winner Michael Douglas. Here's the Thing: Listen to what happens when an inveterate guest becomes a host. Subscribe now and get new interviews every two weeks. Here's the Thing has its roots in public radio. In 2009, Alec joined with producers Lu Olkowski, Trey Kay, Kathie Russo, and Emily Botein to find fresh ways to engage in conversation on the radio. The group developed the idea of a new show that at its heart would look at what makes interesting people tick and create a platform for new and emerging ideas to be presented.

This gets 5 stars before existing, That's how good it is.

Smart Alec

I've been waiting for this. Alec Baldwin has the voice, the personality, and the perfect blend of smart and smart alec to pull this off. I predict a long history if he's not first recruited to national politics...

Gave this a try because I love Alec Baldwin

I really enjoy Alec Baldwin and the Podcast format of interviews with interesting people. But the execution is way off for my taste. For the most part the interviews feature boring questions that pretty much boil down to "tell me why you are so great?". Then the celebrity proceeds to explain why he/she is wonderful and Alec chimes in occasionally to heap praise and dump a little love on himself here and there. The whole thing feels very superficial and not very compelling to listen to. I don't feel like I learned anything about the people or about anything really since its so fluff filled.

The exception being the interview with Ed Rollins. I would like to see the show go more in the direction where they do some actual discussion instead of ego rubbing. Anyways, I'm fairly disappointed so far and I feel about as nourished as one might after an "E" channel binge. Hope this gets better.
