Love Alec

It is always a treat when a new episode pops up.
Alec’s interviews are great because it is a conversation where you are always learning something new.
I know some of his guests he is familiar, while others are those he wants to know better. His interviewing technique allows him make the listener feel they are in the room.

Terrific interviews

I’m so impressed with Alec Baldwin as an interviewer. He’s interested in his guests, asks questions a bit off the beaten path, and although he discusses himself, it’s always in relation to his guests.
