Stop interrupting

I love his show. Interesting guests.
Sometimes I have to stop listening because the endless interruptions and talking over his guests, finishing their sentences is so frustrating.
We know you are prepared. We know how much you love your guests.
Please allow us the full experience apart from your taking over.
Your wit and sense of humour is greatly appreciated.

Interrupting

Lighten up
For those of you who hate the interrupting
Change the channel
That’s the beauty and fun of Alec Baldwin
He’s the best and seriously one of the funniest interviewers we have on the air today

A treasure trove

I’ve listened to every single episode. I tell all My actor clients to listen to the archive. It is a veritable treasure trove of in-depth talk and insight about acting and the business. You have to love Alec. He’s so smart and an adoring fan of his guests. Love this show. Hope to see more and more interviews with actors and people in the film biz because hearing actors and directors interviewed by a veteran actor is a real treat.
