Emmy-winning actor Alec Baldwin will host a podcast for WNYC called Here’s the Thing.

The show, which launches Monday, October 24, gives Baldwin an opportunity to pursue his passions and interests through various conversations. Those conversations could include newsmakers, actors, and public figures who spark his fancy. 

“As someone who has been the subject of innumerable interviews, I wanted to conduct my own and do them the way I liked them: emphasizing the positive, the forward-looking,” said Baldwin. “And I wanted to do that show with WNYC.”

The first podcast features an interview with Michael Douglas and his battle with cancer.  Other guests in the coming weeks include political consultant Ed Rollins and Chris Rock discussing his Broadway debut.
