Hi friend of PRX,

Pro football is no place for amateurs, either for players or REFS. But PRX gives newbies and the pro-am crowd a chance to break out on a level playing field. If you can move a listener, there are no bad calls. Take HypeMachine Radio, based on the website. Or works from aspiring producers at Salt, like this story about brain harvesting. And catch the next wave of youth radio at Generation PRX.

Hut, Hut, HUT!

Alec Baldwin…

…need we say more?

The hugely popular podcast Here’s The Thing with Alec Baldwin from WNYC is now exclusively on PRX as a five-episode series for broadcast.

Two episodes are up now! Start listening to his conversations with Billy Joel, Kristen Wiig, and Dick Cavett. More coming soon with Lorne Michaels, Chris Rock, David Letterman, and others.
