When Alec Baldwin took his podcast to television, it turned into an imitation of Charlie Rose on what looked like a discarded diner set from a soap opera and it didn’t work. The podcast form was perfect, and I’m thrilled Here’s the Thing is back where it belongs. I have been a fan since its beginning. Intelligent conversation with really interesting people, and this episode is no exception. Tennis legend John McEnroe talks passionately about growing up, fatherhood, elitism, New York City and, of course, tennis. Great listen.
