Bill Nye performs as part of the I Love F-ing Science Party at Stubbs Bar-B-Q on March 8, 2014 in Austin, Texas.

Alec Baldwin speaks to Brian and Ira Glass, who was the first guest on the new season of Here's the Thing. Plus: Bill Nye (the science guy); legendary basketball player and now-Knicks announcer Walt 'Clyde' Frazier and City Lore's Steve Zeitlin on the poetry - and politics - of basketball; and several conversations from our "Books That Changed Your Mind" series, including one with the authors Azar Nafisi and Jacqueline Woodson; Isabel Wilkerson and Stephanie Coontz; and Andrew Solomon and Cris Beam on their books about different kinds of families.
