Here's the Thing with Alec Baldwin

Mary Ellen Matthews wnyc.org

Actor Alec Baldwin is best known in public radio circles as host of The New York Philharmonic broadcasts (Sunday afternoons at 1 pm on Classical 88.7-1) and for his tongue-in-cheek rants urging listeners to not contribute during fund drives.

One of our favorite podcasts is his new series of Here's The Thing interviews from WNYC in New York. Alec takes us inside the dressing rooms, apartments, and offices of people whom he really wants to learn more about.
