Marc does his research, asks thoughtful questions, and cares about the world in which he inhabits. I also enjoy hearing about the ways in which his recovery and methods to keep up sobriety have helped others. Myself included.
Marc Maron is a talented interviewer and the personal "essays" that introduce the shows add an interesting perspective. I came to this late, and now I understand what all the buzz is about. Don't like it? Don't listen. Spare us your dumb one-star reviews. You don't get it.
Marc brings some amazing people to his show. That alone makes this show great. Howeverâ¦yesâ¦howeverâ¦.Marc takes pride in NOT doing his homework and having no prep done before his interviews. He brags about not doing his homework but this leaves the show with huge missed opportunities to get into the soul of the folks he brings in. Also, because of his lack of prep he often asks some really stupid questions. I think this is a comic thing since Kevin Pollack does the EXACT same thing. If you are going to wing it be more like Craig Ferguson and know something about the guest THEN do it all off the cuff. But there is hope! I listened to his interview with Kim Gordon and Marc was prepped and had a great interview. He complained that he does;t like to do the homework but having done it really paid off. Keep it up Marc!
Social commentary and lifeâs reflections with some cool cats.
The D.L. Hughley episode was great! I have to admit that as a long time listener I had become a bit bored with the interviews over the past few months. This interview was what I love about Maron. It was honest, raw and enlightening. Bravo to both of youð!
Keep on keeping on Marc! You are the best!
A great podcast from one of my all time favorite comedians. A wide range of guests and very smart and funny.
Great podcast and amazing host, you wonât be disappointed. Go ahead download a couple
Hey Marc youâre awesome! I love everything you do! Keep up the good work!
Iâve spent the last 19 months NOT doing drugs, and the knowledge that someone else has had similar struggles and a little bit of wisdom gleaned from their personal experience that bleeds into the show is great. Itâs far from the main topic of the show, somehow that made it even more supportive. Thanks Marc, I wish I had listened to my dad sooner and tried this podcast out sooner, but just like sobriety, things come to u when u need them the most.
cut out the first 17 - 20 minutes. and you might find this drivel good for background uselessness...marc maron is just waiting for a moment to cut in and talk about himself. if you like Mr. Maron you are in luck --- you will love this show.
Iâve been a listener since his interview with President Obama and I look forward to the next ones each week. Iâve been turned onto books, movies, music and, of course, comedians from listening to this podcast. Clearly you have to be willing to listen to a bit of Maronâs personal life during his opening monologues. I find it interesting despite the fact that my life is vastly different from his.
Marc hits on many strings unattended by most podcasts and comedians as a whole. Forgo celebrity and enjoy the best a podcast has to offer in the vein of increasing interest where you might not have realized you held any.
"Yeah...uh-huh...right...yeah...yeah, uh-huh...yeah..."Seriously, count how many times he says just Yeah in an interview. If it were a drinking game, you would have liver damage after one episode. I delete most episodes unless it's someone I really want to hear about and even then, I usually can't finish it because of this. Hey Marc, listen to your own episodes, it's okay to not fill every available second with your voice.
I love Marcâs podcast, but why does he interview one woman for every four dudes? I would love to hear more women interviewed.
Yo, the competition is getting real. Keep it up, Maron!
This show is always great and the guests always manage to drop helpful gems of wisdom! Why? Because Marc is Gem Wizard.
maron's show is only compelling for the guests, who for some reason are more willing to open up about their lives than at any other time, which could be maron's doing but he's such an obnoxious personality i don't see how, and he spends so long yammering before the guests even arrive that i end up having to fast forward to wherever it is the guests come in, this show should really mimic more of an errol morris doc where the interviewers voice is almost completely eliminated and you just get the subject spilling themselves to the listener/viewer.
Marc Maron has evolved over the years and his interviews are getting better and better. It's a joy to listen!
I usually thoroughly enjoy your podcast, but this latest episode with John Cleese seemed off from the start. My hesitations were validated when the dusty John Cleese began talking about the young American generation. He seems as out of touch with whatâs actually going on he might as well be in the Senate. The only thing I will give him is that he gave me a visceral enough reaction to write this review.
Marc Maron is excellent! He is the most curious and compelling interviewer since Larry King. He singlehandedly addicted me to podcasts, and inspired me to start my own! No praise is high enough!! LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST!
Annoying .. please donât bring her back ! I do love your podcast though !
About celebrities, about humanity, about myself, about Marc Maron's cats ...
Marc manages to get real insights from his guests and draw you into the experience. You understand how the guests live and how they make decisions. And Marc provides wise analysis of human frailties and interactions. Marc by himself (the episode intros) can be an acquired taste. So if, at first, you find yourself impatient, just forward about 10 minutes (sorry, Marc) to find a deeply emotionally satisfying experience. Soon youâll look forward to each whole episode as you visit with a very good friend.
I love your interview style.If I were to do what you do, I can only hope to do so with similar fluidity.You do the same with comedy.Before watching one of your standup specials (thinky pain), I was not a standup fan. I just assumed it was just some easy way to get in to the entertainment industry.Thanks to you, I have learned that comedy is itâs own ragged beast.I thank you for turning me on to Sam Tripoli of all people, as well as the amazing Christina P!!!!!! Your interview with music people are my favorites.Thank you Marc, for the laughs, sure, but especially the inspiration.You are a constant reminder, that there is always more to people, and that we all have value.Rick on!
Another wonderful interview Marc!
Well itâs my favorite. Great content great guests. Who gets better guests?
Iâve come to the Maron game so late. Iâve been going back and listening to all the available old episodes I can get. Great job, Marc.
Your style of interview deserves an entertainer-chameleon like Donald Glover. I think you could wring some bits of untapped insight out of his mind. He seems like a great prospective guest for any interviewer, but you'd hit him from different angles than the usual stuff. I hope you two cross paths somewhere and exchange numbers. Make it happen!
Marc is the most present and engaged interviewer working today. By truly connecting with his guests he shows us what it is to... engage... in genuine, reflective and challenging dialogue with another human. WITHOUT A KEYBOARD.Boomer Lives!!!
What a treat hearing Joe Walsh and his history and musical journey. I loved hearing every honest interesting word. You did a beautiful job letting him speak. Lovely. Thanks.
Iâm not into the self indulgent ranting, the chicken little political hysteria, or the preponderance of preening narcissists Mark often has on. But occasionally heâll have someone good on with an interesting story. Iâd rather have fewer episodes than a regular flow of dullards. Itâs really too bad that he hasnât matured past the point of viewing everything through the lens of partisan politics. Is the world really ending, or is this guy just profiting from promoting the idea of a malaise that only really exists for people who share his insular mindset?
Hey Mark,Donât be a bump on the log.Donât let the bump sit
Found him on GLOW and have âstalkedâ his career. Just love his character in GLOW, but love listening to him talk.
Always a good and original take on things. The specials rock. Guests are always engaging.
Marc is an amazing host who asks the most fantastic questions to get to know the guest. Feels like youâre in the room listening to the conversation. Keep up the good job ðð¼
Thank you for brilliant talk with Adam Cayton Holland.Marc is awesome at talking with people!
His deep history in comedy, music, film, art, and sub-pop culture gives him so much context and common ground that his guests immediately know they can have a deeper conversation that wonât be over The hostâs head. Plus, if you pay attention, there are so many great suggestions for music, movies, art, theatre, etc. that I wouldnât have otherwise been aware of. Iâm a mainliner. People who have taken my advice and listened quickly follow the same path.
Marc Maron is a genius. If youâre not listening to this podcast, youâre an idiot. ð
If your okay with that background fore play of super democratic view then itâs great. Mainly looking past that itâs pretty good.
Such insightful interview, one of the best podcasts out there. Boomer Lives!
How can I access interview with joe Walsh ? I keep getting episode unavailable -
One of your best interviews yet! Great job! ðð»
Marc Maron is one of the best interviewers around. He's funny, he listens, he's taken us all on a journey.
He talks a lot but doesnât say much funny stuff. Way too long, could be edited down to just the good stuff. He also reads way too many ads.
I absolutely love your podcast! It keeps me going all throughout the day. I am a ( low on the rung) mail carrier. Thanks so much for the amazing interviews. Truly the best Iâve ever heard. Sincerely, your trusty mail lady.
Omg. Really enjoy Marc and his conversations. Yummy content.Where is the Ron Howard interview?
Mondays and Thursdays are my favorite days.
Marc is the best! My favorite podcast â¤ï¸
