The dick show is better, this is the boring podcast for your dad. I give two stars because its still better then madox's recent ventures, who at most had one sponser and lost all of the regular ones, where as marc had like 5 in on episode, and some pretty normal products, the start of one had some fruit flavored water, eh might like it better then allot of pop,, way better then a 500$ manpurse, who would buy that?
So many interesting people I knew nothing about. Now I can't stop listening.
One of the best interview shows I've ever heard. Great fun and enlightening.
Getting into other podcasts. Trying new things. This intro was way too long. After about five min, gave up. Next!
Marc Maron has great conversations with a wide realm of humans. I'm always happy I stuck around to listen to guests I wasn't so sure I cared about.The John Prine episode made me very happy.
I don't listen to every podcast. I do go in spurts where I'll listen to 4-5 podcast. It's a great podcast for when I take the dogs on a long walk at night.
The most authentic conversations taking place on a podcast.
Marc has been my favorite on my playlist. Personal interviews with a variety of people. He knows music, movies, acting, and comedians so great line of questions. Knows himself too.
At this point, this podcast is legend. So, I'm not sure what I can add to the lore. Marc is my daily catharsis. Whether on the treadmill or running errands or on my lunch break, I'll listen to him valiantly struggle to be the best version of himself... while also interviewing celebrities. If you're not the neurotic type or don't understand it. Then this is not your podcast. Marc is himself, he's no big on edifice or showbizzy kind of manners. He has no interest in charm or cuteness. Marc is on a mission to connect with his guests and dive as deep as possible in the allotted time for the interview and relate his story to theirs as much as possible. He succeeds at all this so handily that it actually spoiled other interviewers for me since no one ever goes as deep with as much grace as Marc. If you're looking for a place to start I recommend what was my first episode, the Louis CK two parter which Slate called "the greatest podcast episode ever"... so far. It sets up the context for the whole podcast since Louis and Marc are old friends and they talk a lot about their journey and what brought Marc to do the podcast in the first place. If you dig that, you're a WTFer fo show. Honestly, the interviews are some of the best I've ever heard. Because it feels like all it is two people in a garage, talking about life.
Been listening for about 3 years. My personal fave of the 10 or so podcast I listen to.
Guess how many times Marc says 'Yeah/Sure/Right' to fill the gaps during the course of the interview. If guessed 'all times' you're correct. Marc, shut up and let the guest speak.
occasionally overly self-indulgent (martin landau episode) sometimes cliche & fanboy'ish (annette bening episode) amost always a vehicle that adds to my understanding and appreciation of life...i usually skip the first 10 minutes
Mark is so enthusiastic. It's contagious. Keep it up, man.
Great show! Marc Maron is humorous and thoughtful. I love the interviews and his commentaries on everyday life.
I like many of the interviews. My only complaint is he gets kind of loud and occasionally talks over the person being interviewed, but overall interesting.
Didnât know about this guy until I saw his IFC series. Great stuff, glad I discovered these podcasts. True talent.
Mark is a great interviewer and original in his questions. He digs deep with sincere caring interest.
Love listening to Marc and his guests every week.
We get it. You have a cat and drink coffee. Why people like this morose dipstick is beyond me. There are so many better alternatives - Never Not Funny, Phil Hendrie and Bill Burr just to name a few.
Fantastic podcast. Interviews and more with fascinating people. Almost never a waste of time. Almost always I laugh. Almost always I learn something really tasty. Time well spent.
May not be for everybody, but if it speaks to you it speaks to you hard, as it does to me. Also recommend the TV show.
I used to be able to stomach this pod a lot more, but eventually I started to feel like I was listening to Marc's therapy sessions instead of a dialogue between two people. Marc is funny and obviously smart and cares deeply about things, but his neuroses only have a certain charm for me in moderation. I listen now only if I'm really interested in the guest, and by the end, it almost never fails, Marc brings up his own daddy issues. Uncomfortable.
MM will amaze you with his very good and engaging interviews with a plethora of mostly famous people. He is very good at interviewing and I like his personal commentary near the beginning of his show. THE best part is at the end when he noodles on his guitar and makes you wonder why he isn't in a band. At least part time.
Thank for this long overdue and satisfying interview with James Hetfield. As an avid fan of his career and yours, I knew there would be enough common ground for a great podcast.
he's such a boring interviewer. i nearly fell asleep listening to Kristen Wiig! How is that possible?
It's one of the best out there. Great interviews and insight.
I love knowing that there's someone out there who isn't afraid to say what's on his mind. Not just to provoke a response from someone else, but to just be honest with himself and the audience about all the little insecurities that can bog down your brain day-to-day. Fantastic interviews that are both funny and insightful.
It's just two people talking but somehow you end up changed by the end maybe even refreshed and more engaged in life.
Marc is by far the best interviewer on the planet. Any one of his episodes is a must listen.
Gives great interviews
If you like to listen to someone whom is in touch with emotions.
One of the best interviewers out there. Pick one, any one, you'll be hooked!!!
I listen to the show at work, and I am beyond grateful. Marc is just the best host and interviewer. He speaks from his heart and has geniune curiosity when talking to his guests. Keep at it!
Truly has excellent interviewing skills!Gets the best out of his guests
I love marc
Marc Maron is my absolute favorite interviewer! I can't get enough! I need to write him a thank you letter for seriously being a part of my everyday life and making it a better place to be. Love the show! Love Marc!
Always so funny and entertaining
I get Marc, and I'm sure if we met and talked, he would get me too.
This is simple. You and a great friend (Mark) are in conversation with the person he has visiting.
The perfect podcast for folks who think they know everything but still want to learn more. I'm always surprised by what Marc can pull out of conversations from guests, even ones that I assumed were really uninteresting. Always worth a listen and great material for when your on line in a store or something stupid like that.
Hate. Hate. Hate this pod.
The Tony Robins Podcast has changed my life! The power of positive thinking has...What?Marc who?Oh yeah, he's good too.
This is the best interview podcast ever made and continues to have some of my favorite interviews of all time.
This podcast is fantastic, just a guy really trying to connect with his guests. Pretty hypocritical to whine about the guy just trying to share his political views on his own podcast.
Maron finds the core of the conversation with his myriad of guests; from artists to film makers to musicians and comics and keeps it funny, sincere and free flowing.
Gets me through the long road trips. Thanks Mark.
Everything & Anything about Marc Maron is wonderful. This guy get is. Love when he talks about relationships....relatable.
