Here's the Thing
Host: Alec Baldwin
It's safe to say most podcast hosts live as relative unknowns, creating and posting their episodes from garages and basements. It's also safe to say that Alec Baldwin is not most podcast hosts, or humans. The Golden Globe Award–winning actor brings his passionate, funny, and outspoken attitude to Here's the Thing, on which he sits down for intimate interviews with fellow actors, authors, policymakers, and friends to discuss their influences, most famous works, and the serendipitous moments that helped make them who they are today. Baldwin brings a surprising amount of candor out of his guests, so it feels less like a podcast and more like you grabbed the seat next to two friends at a coffee shop.
Best Episode: Baldwin brings on This American Life's Ira Glass to discuss the media's failures, and explains why his show examines religion and people of faith so much despite his own atheist leanings.
