Honest host

Refreshingly honest host. Insightful questions without fawning over the guest. Smart and easy listening.

Great podcast

But would be better if Stephen was the host.

Just The Thing!

Alec Baldwin had the kind of looks and Hollywood appeal that left you wondering why he bothered to develop his irreverent humour, curious intellect and consequential personality. Thankfully he did and here it is put to good use. I never miss an episode.
