Boy, was I way behind on this. Marc Maron, a well-known stand-up comedian, creator of a television show, and extremely popular podcaster, has created a forum for oral history unlike many other artists of his kind. Maron’s podcast, WTF with Marc Maron, is an hour-long podcast with a different guest each week. Maron’s interviewing skills unlike many others who have created their own podcast. My favorite thing about Maron and his outlet is how obsessed he is with history. Maron can speak to up-and-coming stars like Colin Jost, or Bert Kreischer, and care about them as much as he cares in the interviews with Mel Brooks or Jonathan Winters.
Maron has earned respect from a wide net of generations from different directors, comedians, musicians, and politicians. While Marc Maron doesn’t need my help promoting his podcast because he is always in the top ten of his peers, I cannot recommend this podcast enough for you lunch hours or commutes to work.
