I really enjoy Marc Maron and his WTF podcast. He gets all psychological with his own life for like 10 minutes, wondering why he fought with his girlfriend or why he has to eat all of the cheese cake he made the evening prior. Then, he brings on a comedian guest and tries to get to the bowels of the craft and to the guts of the person.
It’s fascinating stuff. He’s done interviews with some heavy hitters like Robin Williams, Judd Apatow, Zach Galifianakis, Ben Stiller, Dane Cook, Ken Jeong, Sarah Silverman, Carlos Mencia, Louis CK and Aziz Ansari, but also does a great job of getting a lot of interesting working comics in the mix. Folks like Janeane Garofalo, Patten Oswalt, Doug Benson, Jimmy Pardo, Stewart Lee, Mike Birbiglia, Dana Gould, Maria Bamford, Jackie Kashian and Paul Scheer.
Basically, any comedian that’s anybody will end up on this podcast, which he does twice a week. It’s great stuff. Check it out. And, once you get hooked and find yourself listening to this neurotic 47-year-old all the time, you’ll want to celebrate the Cat Ranch where he records his show by purchasing the Marc Maron with his cats t shirt.
Do it! It’s American Apparel.
