As I know how much time is put into each episode, I have a hard time looking at someone’s art (their podcast) and saying, “I don’t like this.” Now in the past Iv’e said, “I don’t like this and here’s why..” but in the end I’m not super comfortable. I’m not sure I would like someone going over this podcast with a magnifying glass (I feel today’s episode is a little “hissy”). So what I thought I would do is review podcasts that I enjoy. I can still talk about things they might be bale to do better, but I would be more comfortable to put out a podcast every two weeks to say’ Here is something I like” instead of “Here is something that does nothing for me.” I’m not sure as an audience you find that useful either. I would love to know what you think.
Alex Baldwin Here’s The Thing
All I knew of Alec Baldwin was his movies, and I was pretty sure he was a Liberal Weenie. Then I saw him on SNL, and on 30 Rock, and I appreciate his skills as a gifted actor, and especially his ability to not take himself too seriously. His podcast is described as him interviewing people he knows and people he would like to know. It starts off with a bit of narration, and then you hear him have a conversation with people. It’s very loose, and best of all it is edited to get the best part of the conversation.
His guests have included Chris Rock, Michaels Douglas, Kathleen turner, Dick Cavet, Kristin Wig, and more.
Technically its super sound, and the ID3 tags are there. HIs iTunes listing is up to par. In general I found this interesting due to a good host (who doesn’t hog the conversation) and has great guests. He puts out an episode every two weeks. Here is the info:
