What it's about: Conversations with comedians, directors, actors, and entertainers
Recorded in comedian Marc Maron’s garage, this scrappy podcast has become hugely popular in the last few years -- he even booked President Obama as a guest back in June. His off-the-cuff, casual interview style is nothing like Terry Gross’, but he has his own unique ability to get guests to reveal themselves in a totally new light.
One disclaimer: the opening 20 minutes or so of each episode is often filled with Maron riffing and ranting by himself, which can be tough to sit through. Skip ahead if need be.
