Empires Strike Back

Hi friend of PRX,

Even though this week — at least in England and Egypt — it looks like Goliath is on a comeback, we all still root for the little Davids and Davias.

Luke Skywalker versus Daddy Darth, consumers fighting big money, civil rights activists pushing for peaceful change.

Stand up…

Here’s the Thing

with Alec Baldwin

Baldwin is back with his addictive interview series from WNYC. Ten new episodes of Here’s the Thing are coming, with Judd Apatow, Fred Armisen, Rosie O’Donnell, and more. Available now:

Plus, you can still air last year’s episodes with Billy Joel, Lorne Michaels, and others through February!
