Here's the Thing

Here’s the Thing with Alec Baldwin -- Conversations that Sidestep the Predictable. When you put two creative, well-known personalities together in conversation, it’s hard to stop listening.

In his new radio series, Here’s the Thing, award-winning actor Alec Baldwin gives the listener unique entrée into the lives of some of today’s most exciting performers. Baldwin sidesteps the predictable by taking listeners inside the dressing rooms, apartments, and offices of some of the leading creative personalities of our time, including Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Columbus, Fred Armisen, Lena Dunham and Judd Apatow.

Employing an engaging mixture of curiosity, intelligence and warmth, Baldwin explores what motivates his guests, how they feel about what they do, and what keeps them up at night.

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 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.
