Why do you talk over people so much? Let your guests speak and listen to them....SO we can listen to what they have to say.
He knows his wheelhouse for sure. He has great way of getting his guests to engage with him!
5 stars. No one better out there. Funny and poignant and tortured.
Marc Maron, you're the absolute greatest!!
I was recently referred by a friend to listen to your podcast. Iâve been hooked ever since! You make the listeners feel as though weâre right there in that garage with you. I love your no-nonsense approach to interviews, politics & basic life principles. I enjoy your show & look forward to it weekly. Keep up the good work, man. Youâre killing it!
Look forward to his podcasts every week!! He treats everyone he interviews with such dignity and respect and I love hearing his insights in todayâs political climate. Simply wonderful, thank you!!!
Was attracted to this podcast because of the guests. Seemed like an eclectic offering. But for whatever charm people think this guy has for his informality, itâs amateur hour and really annoying to try and listen to. Constant injections of âyeahâ âuh-huhâ are pointless and sound more like a stoner waiting for the punchline of a Bevis and Butthead joke than a skilled interviewer.
If you want a great conversational pod, this is the actual best of the artform.
Keeps me awake with depth and humor
Thanks for all you do. I'm 3 seasons into your tv show and enjoy everything else you put out. I can't wait for more.
If you skip the first 15 minute rant drivel, the interviews are pretty interesting.
This is one of the cadillacs of podcasts. I so admire how honest and messy Mr. Maron is, as are his guests more often than not. It's hilarious but it's also really searching in that true, pure way.
I had enjoyed his comedy, and occasionally watched his tv show, "Maron" but listening to the podcast has opened up a view of his truly intelligent insights and captivating interviews. He can really draw out revelations from his interviewees. Fascinating!
Enjoy the interviews. A lot.
Maron is on the podcast Mount Rushmore. At least that's what they told me on a recent trip to the Black hills in South Dakota. Looks just like Teddy Roosevelt.
Thought provoking talks.
I enjoy the interviews!
Brilliant interview - thank you Marc and Pete
Love Marc's ability to make guests comfortable enough to have meaningful conversations.
I enjoy (most of) your podcasts, maybe not always the subject, but always how real you, and your guests are. I especially enjoyed your podcast with Lee Evans. Thanks for being real.
This podcast is always interesting, informative and insightful. I enjoy his sincerity.
8 years in, love the show now more than ever.
Marc is funny, witty, sensitive, and engaged. Even the talks with people I've never heard of turn out to be fascinating.
Back off Charlie Rose, Marc Maron is in the house. A variety of different guests don't stop this funny as hell comic genius (Yep, I said GENIUS!) getting into the nitty gritty details of life and all of the comic and tragic elements no extra charge! Incisive, Heartfelt, Earnest, Provocative, and all done with the gravitas of Edward R. Murrow Iwithout the cigarettes). Good job Marc! Keep up the good work.
You've got to go there to know there, and this podcast does it with regularity. Nothing's for everyone, but this one hits so many notes on so many different topics and occasions that by now, after years of listening, I wonder what the quiet world was like without it.Keep it up, Marcânever mind the hater babble and those who don't get that your pre-interview riffs are just the verbal versions of your end-of-show guitar jams: dirty, fuzzy, and sloppy, and shot through with the deep blues, sympathy for the suffering, and the transcendence of everyday living and breathing.I'm glad you're sober, and that your interviews are anything but.
If you're interested in listening to a conversation with maron, and some Hollywood actor from the vaudeville days. This podcast is great
Basically the podcast that I judge all other podcasts against.
What an interesting man Alice Cooper is--who knew! Great job, Marc. I enjoyed your podcast.
I truly wished I had words to explain what this podcast has meant to me and got me through this year, but alas, the English language fails me here.Marc has been an inspiration and a motivation and learning more about the lives of his excellent revolving door of guests has really helped me grow more as a person.I've now found myself going back through the archives and listening to older interviews and it's just so fulfilling as a listener.
Maron has found his niche. His interview style and ability brings out the most interesting aspects of the interviewee. As a bonus it is often cathartic for both parties plus the listener. Great work!
I love listening to this podcast. Marc is an excellent interviewer and he always comes into the interviews prepared. Keep on keeping up Marc.
Candid, humorous, and natural interviews with some of the most interesting people. Marc is very good at this. Would be a #1 rated talk show if America wasn't so stupid. Very cool!
There really are some great interviews here and Marc has a way of making his guests feel at ease and dive deep into their lives before fame, but the 15 minute self-indulgent rants at the beginning of the show I could do without. Just a lot of rambling there. It also gets monotonous listening to him always assume people's lives are heavily based on their childhoods. Comes off a bit like he's trying to see himself in his guests in order to connect, whether it's there or not.
I've been a fan of Maron's podcast for a few years now. Always brilliant, always empathic, always biting and always a good time. Thanks, Marc!
If you're a republican , then you will be unfairly criticized and shamed throughout his podcast. This is a shame because Marc Maron really does have a lot of talent. I unsubscribe to him today after his rant following the protest death, which was unfortunate but I sure haven't heard any rant like that blaming the perpetrators (which you should) about the Muslim bombings happening on a weekly basis. He also spends a lot of time talking about playing his guitar, which is about as interesting as how it sounds. He used to be the number 1 comedy podcast, he probably still would be so if he didn't alienate half the country with the things he says.
Marc is the most entertaining, heartfelt, and funny podcaster I've ever heard. His outlook on life is fun to listen to and he always features great guests :)
Marc's interviews get better and better!
I really enjoy Marc's interviews particularly with actors & directors thank you Marc!
Funny, informative, therapeutic, engaging and a fifth thing. I love Marc, in a very gay way.
Jesus, what a self absorbed douche-bag. I tired out of his babbling after a couple podcast.No humor to be found here!
Marc's podcast is my favorite. His interviews are most often fantastic.
MM turned some kind of corner 3 or 400 episodes ago and seems better able to express interest and empathy with his guests and select questions or lead into more interesting areas. The long form interviews take guests past their 40 minutes of canned responses and they will often express or reveal real thoughts or feelings/experiences.Marc's interest in art and acting ( particularly plays) have been an education for me.Nice Work!
I'm constantly anxious too, so it inspires me that you put yourself in conversation with so many different types of people all the time. Keep it up. More of everything, please.
