TV celebrities telling us how tough there lives are? Fun!
Is your once a week therapy sessions not enough? You’ve come to the right place. Educational, empowering, and funny as hell.

Thank you both! Thank you Marc for doing what you do and thank you Ellen for your honesty and transparency. I read a few of the other reviews before I wrote this one and thought of not doing it because everyone already said everything that I have to say. I also want to say thank you for the music, it’s beautiful how the interview opened me up to hearing what you play with my soul instead of just my ears, I imagine you closing your eyes and getting out of your head and just letting the music flow which, as a musician, is something I struggle with.
I discovered Marc's podcast a few months ago, and discovered his impressive library of past guests to listen to. At the beginning of every episode Marc pours his heart out and I have laughed and cired with him. His worries, heartbreaks and joys are sincere and relatable. What a gem of a man.
Almost as good as Zach Sings Like A Girl... No reason
You were the first comedian I saw on The A List god knows how long ago now, and I’ve been a fan ever since! Rock on Boomer! Thank you for sharing with us, the good the bad, and the ugly it helps to know we’re not alone in the crazy!
You are loved. Put out an album of your blues riffs ✌️#boomerlives
This episode is why I love Marc. His rant of frustration. His tuning in. His compassionate heart. His dadness. His beautiful guitar playing. Ellen-a tender soul.
Monkey & Lynn live forever! 🐱❤️👩
I love every episode with Jew talk. It always cracks me up, plus, as a non-Jew, I learn stuff
I always liked Mark Maron. I don’t know what it is - I mean, of course he’s hilarious, but he brings other emotions with it, and I think that’s important. As soon as you have the chance to see Mark’s standup, do yourself a favor and BE THERE! Thanks for keeping it real, Mark.
Wry takes on this world we’re in couples with the emotional evolution of this man over the years makes him a very compelling host for a pod. Longtime listener; Hoping he gets bored one day and reads this - just talking to people in a meaningful way is the coolest thing any of us can do for one another.
If you want to hear nothing but confirmation bias, this is the podcast for you. Maron never has anyone on that slightly disagree with his views. In fact, he recorded an episode and never released it because the person had differing views (maybe Nick DiPaolo?). I will listen if it’s someone I’m interested in, but it’s still usually an awful interview with Maron just using it as a platform to confirm his biases. You can hear him getting uncomfortable when Ice-T says he’s neither Democrat or Republican, and that he thinks both parties are equally corrupt. Maron is an unfunny hack who’s routine is a Richard Lewis mockery. He was always the worst most ill-informed guest on Tough Crowd, yet he seems to have a following as if he is some kind of socio-political guru. I just don’t get it....
You hate Israel, I’m done with you. Sad. Been going every year since I was 19. You should visit the ancestral home more often.
Was a big fan of Ice T early on up through first Body Count record then fell off as Ice took off with acting. Glad to hear Ice T still has his ear to the track and provided very thoughtful interview during distanced interviews.
When your father dies you will be moaning for months on end about him. Get a grip and appreciate what you have today.
A great way to spend time deep-diving into the human condition. Thanks Marc!
I love Seth Rohan! I love you with all my rotten heart. Big hug. Theresa
If Marc was not saddled with a intellectual impairment, he would invite Ben Shapiro to discuss Judaism. He would rather give Seth Rogan a reach around than learn something. Never trust a drug addict.
I had to quit listening to this one half way through. It wasn’t you Mark, it was Seth.
These two are Jew-ish. Really more ish than Jew. Their views on the mere existence of Israel could have come from any garden variety alt-right Nazi. Ironic.
Been a fan of his cast since the beginning. Actually met him at a show he did in Pontiac. He stood behind me in line to get into the venue, shame on them. My buddy was drunk and told Marc he looked like a vagrant (with his duffel bag merch case). No accounting for my friends taste I guess. Great conversations, even in spite of the neuroticism. Boomer lives!
But the angry blues at the end were COOKIN!!!!! Seth Rogen and Marc, truly chicken soup for the soul. Sorry for the cliche.
Thank you for eloquently sharing your sadness, it validates my feelings. Bless you 🧡
I wanted to reach out to say I’m sorry for your loss. I know it’s a little late but you don’t know me so why should you care what I think about your life. ☺️ The day I heard the news about Ms. Shelton’s passing, I was so sad for you. Again I understand that you don’t know me so who cares what I think, but I felt for you and in case this makes you smile for a moment I just wanted to tell you that I care. It took me a couple weeks to listen to the podcast again cuz I knew there would be tears and it pained me to listen because I so feel for you. . My thoughts are with you. Take care of yourself cuz you are valued by many. Even us nobodies to you... we care. I laughed and cried a little inside when you mentioned “please scream inside your heart” on a previous podcast. I write down little sayings that move me or make me laugh and I saved this one a few weeks ago cuz I too feel it is 2020’s motto. Thanks for your honest feelings in all things. Laura- Milwaukee WI
Love this podcast so much!!
I enjoy the format ... the truth spoken, the range of feelings with guests and Marc’s monologues. Marc’s talking thru it ... working thru it ... we’re all there with him.
Hey Marc, I know you have been going through some tough moments of life but please do keep up the good work! Your podcast brings me joy and broadens my knowledge in all perspectives every day! You are not alone!
Thanks Marc for all of your humor and honesty about everything. You really help dude in this pandemic and I am so grateful for you.
Trailblazer. He's got most of society saying fermiliar instead of familiar. Impressive
Marc’s vulnerability and humor combined with his skills as an interviewer make this one of my favorite podcasts ever. He brings out the best in people and shows a human fallibility that is endearing as heck. I’m a huge fan.
I hope you find Boomer, man. Hey how about 20 minutes less ad reads/discussing the interview/validating yourself as not worth cancelling and run a longer interview like Rogan, man. You get better at guitar every ep, man.
Best one on one interviews
So great, thought-provoking and so funny!
We need leaders not tweeters. Marc I’m sorry for your loss. Keep up the good work
Marc, can’t remember who it was you were talking to when this happened in the last couple of years, but you were talking about Casino and right after thinking it myself you brought up how the head in the vise scene is just too much. We are on the same page, sir! Take care.
What an angry man! So depressing to listen to him. Blames everyone but himself. No wonder life hasn’t quite worked out for him.
Smart funny honest open intelligent… And one of the best interviewers ever, he really connects with his guests. Not surprisingly, he got the best POTUS to visit the heralded garage for a sit down. And a fantastic guitar player with his own unique style and sound… When he decides to put away the microphone as a career I hope he moves into music, he’s that good Rock on Marc Boomer lives!
George Lopez was refreshing- was he Sicilian in a previous lifetime? His take on the value of SPITE tells me he is Sicilian in spirit. Anyway, love your show. If you can keep it up, keep it going.❤️
Wonderful to listen to drunk! Can't wait to listen to sober because it's amazing so far! Edit: still pretty good when not drunk, not quite as mind blowing but still good!
I absolutely appreciate how authentic Marc is about Everything, especially grief.
Best podcast out there.
Marc you are doing good in this world. I am holding your hand and giving you a hug. Monkey is a good boy and you gave him a good life. Be at peace when you process it.
Knocked it out of the park with this one Mark. Love the dichotomy of you and Janelle together. Speaking of the issue of endemic racism and then pivoting about how she creates her art. She did a great job of explaining why we need to make changes in our current system to equalize the world for all. Then going deep into her upbringing and how she gained confidence from her family totally backing her. Wow! Different worlds colliding into one awesome podcast. Thanks for sharing your skills as a interview and your transparency about your current life situation. Sorry for your loss...
I’ve listened for years and it’s been fun to witness your ascent in the biz. The interviews are engaging, and the dissection of artistic process is inspiring. So very sorry for your loss, Marc. Wishing you all the best and better times ahead.
I know he’s been around for a coon’s age doing this, but I just started listening to him in earnest after John Prine died & I listened to his interview. He has really found his calling as an interviewer. I know he’s a comic (many of his guests do reflect that), but he’s hilarious & thought provoking in his questioning, challenging, & riffing off his guests in an exciting, stream of consciousness not to be denied.
Love Marc maron, maybe because he once lived in Alaska and I’m from there...so there is a small common ground there. Just love this podcast. Keep it up Maron!
Mark! You made me laugh today discussing your grill! There is a lightness in your voice. May your healing continue. Oh and for what it’s worth, hawks are messengers from the spiritual world, supposedly, and indicate wisdom “long-vision”. Hawks are amazing!
Almost Famous is my favorite movie! I love that Marc uses this sample for his podcast!! Brilliant!
I’m almost 78 and really enjoy your show. Actually it is something good that came out of Covid. When the gyms closed I could no longer talk to friends while being on a treadmill I found you. I close my ears at the beginning of your podcasts (generational) but laugh and cry with you. So very sorry for your loss I understand as I lost my husband the love of MY life. At least your getting in shape painlessly and unknowingly walking 3-4 miles each day.
Love your point of view on many things. Sorry for your loss.
So sorry for your loss. Sending you good thoughts and positive energy. Thank you for your authenticity- been listening for years. You truly are an original and I’m sure you know how much all your listeners appreciate you.
a lot of the reviews here seem to want an older traditional style of interview- no convo, just a one-way street. Maron has been through so much and has such interesting truths within his ego that most listeners seek him out for the two-way street, conversational style. He adds where there would otherwise be neutrality. If you like dialogue this is for you! If you just want celebrity facts you’ll be disappointed to hear something much deeper taking place.
Some people come at this WAY too harshly. Plenty of other podcasts interviewing big names and hosted by other great interviewers. Marc has his own style for YEARS and that’s not for everyone equipped with a small mind but he has always shown a vast range of the human experience whilst relating to it the best way he can. He's consistently made a personal podcast that shows the personal depth of character of a wide range of actors, comedians, directors, writers and musicians. Marc is the podfather. He’s always honest and that’s what sets him apart. He’ll be in my weekly routine for years to come.
On par with Jerry (Garcia) and Bob. This is my “go to” podcast. Real life with musical interludes.
Who’s arguing with who? What happened to respect for the individuality?
I know now why Marc isn’t a comedian.
I pick and choose which of his pods I listen to. Some are both enjoyable and informative. Must say it’s a bit odd that Marc often equates himself to his guest, which possibly makes interview better but can be really off-putting. Marc is not Seinfeld, and he shouldn’t question Seinfeld’s method, which has proven to be roughly 10,000 times funnier, more relevant and more successful.
Love you, Marc Maron! Even if I’m not interested in the person you are interviewing I always listen to your intro. Thank you for being honest - keep putting it out there and take care!
Hands down one of the smartest guys out there. A. Maz. Ing interviewer. I learn about life and my world with every listen. I’m so sorry you’ve lost your sweetheart, Marc. Been there. Please know I’m sending you a plethora of continual hugs.
Thanks Marc I still remember you from your “Morning Sedition” show on Air America. I visited you guys at O’Neals a couple of times. So sorry for your loss. George Mc Veterans For Peace NYC
If you are looking for an intelligent conversation with someone famous your in the right spot. Marc does an excellent job at creating a comfortable environment for the guest.
I’m so sorry for your loss and am glad you are continuing to do interviews. You are very talented and appreciated.
in a good, beautiful way. TY.
As Joan Didion said “Grief turns out to be a place none of us know until we reach it.” I’m sorry you’re having to feel the feels of pain & loss. You’re in my thoughts Marc & I wish you peace. Thank you so much for staying with us (very selfless of you)❤️ Best Regards, Wendy
Marc, I have been listening to this podcast starting around 2011. I have seen you live and you even acknowledged a positive tweet I made after attending. I am the opposite of a celebrity worshiper. I don’t give a sh** who you are or what you do. I would not walk across the street to shake a hand of someone just because they are “famous.” So why this note of trying to provide comfort to you? It is a small and humble gesture of thanks. As an anxiety-ridden, neurotic Ashkenazi Jew that struggled professionally for a long time, you connected with me. You speak to me, and provide me more than entertainment. You have given me strength and hope in this world. For example, after my divorce I was afraid of dying alone. But you made me realize how great it will be to have a Jamaican women rubbing my head on my death bed saying, “It’s ok baby, it’s ok.” In return, I share these words of comfort. Please do not be afraid to be sad and to mourn. It is a gift that comes with loosing someone you care very much about. It demonstrates just how powerful the relationship was between the two of you. As time passes, the pain will dull and come less frequently. At the same, it will never totally go away. When it comes, always embraces it and look at it as a gift.
I am so sorry for your loss. My son lost his wife when he was 36. Filled with despair and grief the day of her passing, he looked into my eyes and said “Mom, I don’t know what to do.” I said “ Your job today is to breathe in and out. Can you do that?” He said he could. I said “That might be your job tomorrow, too.” Take it slow, Marc. Lean on your friends and all of us.
Hang in there, MM. We are with you and listening. Talk to us if you need to-with or without a guest. Your friends and fans can help hold you up.
The interviewer talks way to much about himself in most of the interviews. It’s unbearable to listen to after a couple shows.
Marc My condolences to you and all who loved her. I have worked as a mortician for over 22 years. I do outreach, and host events like death cafes. The honest, beautiful raw emotion you have shown over the last few episodes has been so heartfelt. Please know there is no wrong way to grieve. Please know when the emotion hits you, take the time to sit in that moment. Be present, be honest, be open. I love this show, my 13 year old loves this show, we both love you. Stay safe, stay healthy.
I just love it. Thanks for everything, we are with you
Grief is a process! Life is hard! Be kind to yourself, Marc.
Friday (5/15/20) I listened to this podcast for the 1st time, the Barry Sonnenfeld episode. I decided it would become one of my regular programs, because I like listening to Marc’s voice, his takes on things & his ability to get people to open up with him. I was devastated and so worried for Marc when I learned less than two days later what had happened to Lynn. Today, I listened to the episode with her, and her unique voice as an artist rings out loud and clear. I only just started watching her films, and I truly regret not having been hip enough to see them sooner. I have a feeling my late arrival to this podcast will open many such doors to artists and ideas new to me if not the world.
Funny. Funny. Funny.
We love you, Marc. You’re right, this is what you do, and I’m grateful you shared this now because we all have to grieve sometime or another. It’s universal. Thank you for your bravery and honesty, not just now but always. My family (we all love your podcast) is sending whatever strength we can. Best of luck as you begin to incorporate this terrible hurt into your new self.
We love you, Marc Maron! Stay strong through this. Thinking of you ❤️
Dear Marc, I have read your books, watched your movies, tv shows, comedy specials and late night appearances, Ive seem your live shows, and I never miss your podcast. I tell people that you are my brother from a different mother. My heart is breaking for you. Please remember that Lynn would want you to find peace and happiness as you somehow move past this devastating loss. We are sending you love and support. Lean on us and let the people who love you share your burden and help you move through this overwhelming grief.
So sorry to hear about Lynn Shelton. She was by all accounts a lovely person and accomplished director. Thank you for the great conversations that you share. All the best to you during this tough period.
Marc, so glad to hear your intro this morning. Your listeners, me included, love you so much and want to help you, but know we can’t. You’ve got to feel it all and we cannot walk in your shoes. Lynn was your person, and you are our guy. Stay safe and strong.
Mark, listening to your retrospect and intro to the rebroadcast of Lynn’s show was like a punch to the gut. My heart bleeds for you. Thank you for sharing your painful and intimate last moments with your love and partner. Stay strong. Keep talking. Your podcasts are so engaging. Ugh...
I listened to the podcast from the other day with Lynn. I felt the connection! Stay strong, sounds like you are, and like you're processing and being open and honest. I ran into Lynn (and you were there too, but I didn't know about anything) a few weeks ago at the market and we talked about Mad Men and good and bad crew jackets. She was so kind and friendly, and I won't forget it. Be well!
I am in Seattle and today the sky looks exactly how Lynn described it. She is everywhere today. So so sorry for your loss.
I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you. Monday’s Tribute was beautiful. You are in my thoughts. ❤️
Marc - this interview was so lovely. She was smart, funny, vibrant, and creative. You had such an obvious connection. I hope you are able to find friends/family who have experienced the same sudden loss. No comparison suffering (your loss is not less than!). The waves of grief will lessen, the love and memories will begin to shine through - but for now breath and grieve.
Stay strong. Thank you for your service for your generosity. Love show long time. Take care pal
We really do. Thank you for checking in with us.
Keep talking, keep playing and keep your sobriety. We need to hear your voice and know you are in our thoughts. Don’t ask more of yourself than you can give at this time
You have experienced such a horrible surreal shock, the death of a loved one so young, so unexpectedly. I feel for you having experienced this myself and my heart truly goes out to you and Lynn’s family. The no goodbye part seems to be such a difficult hurdle to finding peace. It seems silly but she will come to you in your dreams, before sleep tell yourself when she does come you will say whatever was unsaid. You may find when those dreams come you speak to her and wake finding a small measure of peace, enough to keep taking steps forward. I wish you strength.
Loved the podcast with Lynn - you could feel the connection between you two. How lucky are you to have a conversation with someone you loved, that you can go back to when you need it. Most people in relationships will never have that and it’s a good remainder to appreciate the important people in your life. I’m so sorry for your loss. EK
I stayed up until midnight to hear the intro to the Thursday show to hear your voice and make sure you’re feeling supported and dealing with the loss of your amazing partner as best you can. We’re all here for you. So many of us depend on you and your show for strength and now it’s our turn to give our support and positive energy back to you. Stay strong 💪🏼
Marc- you made a beautiful and heartfelt tribute to Lynne. I never knew her and you had me crying listening to you speak about her. May your love and memories of her keep you strong.
Marc, I am so sorry about Lynn's passing. Life just does not make sense sometimes, but it does seem that you two belonged together and I'm glad you had some time together before she left. Please know you are loved. Your tribute to her was beautiful and I enjoyed hearing you interview her in 2015. Love the podcast. Take care, Michelle in Lodi, CA
Dear Marc, Your honesty and the baring of your neurotic yet generous soul as you constantly and openly learn from brilliant others makes for an intellectual, therapeutic ride I can’t miss. One of your guests recently said that yours is the voice of our consciousness, and I think especially for vulnerable, self-protective American artists with Jewish mothers, in many ways you are. You’ve sustained me through my lonely doctoral work and now through this pandemic. Your episode about Lynn made me cry like a baby. I was rooting for you guys, clearly you’d found your person and I’m glad you had her on the podcast recently to admit that someone was “with” you throughout this. As an artist and academic who has been alone for much of my life (the work can and does isolate sometimes), with several rollercoaster relationships in the past, I still love love and I was vicariously thrilled for you. It was beautiful and I’m heartbroken with you. We will heal. Thanks for baring and being. Love, Marianna
I fell in love with Lynne just listening to this right now. I have no words other than I’m sorry that you lost your baby.
He is a sensitive interviewer who has grown a lot as a person. He’s not fake.
Prayers for you so sorry
So sorry for your heartbreaking loss, Marc.
I am so sorry. Know and feel that you are loved by so many even though that can’t compare. Thanks for everything.
Marc, you really have a way of making people trust you, and it makes your interviews such a pleasure! I especially enjoyed the beautiful tribute to Lynn; you painted a lovely picture of her. Sending you love, warm hugs, and infinite guitar riffs from SC
Can’t imagine what you are feeling right now. So sorry you are experiencing this. My advice to you is what would Lynn think about this. I know this sounds morbid and awful. But when loved ones I knew died, I tried to channel their thoughts. Mostly my folks. My mom died when I was 26. My dad was killed by a hit and run driver when I was 32. Get on your horse and ride. I imagined her saying. My dad would say get to it. I know this sounds crazy but it helped me. Thinking of you.
My heart is so deeply saddened for your loss. She was a special love and you two were so well paired. Sadness.
I just listened to your show about Lynn Shelton and I can’t stop thinking about both of you. I’m so sorry for your loss. Your tribute to her was beautiful and so clearly heartfelt. Take care of yourself Mr. Maron.
Mark, we are so sorry about Lynn. We are hurting with, and for you.
Dear Marc, the heaviness of this loss will be felt for a long time but keep engaging and keep on talking it out with us brother. It’s so hard but we all love you & are here for you. I so enjoyed listening to you ask your recent guests, “do you know Lynn Shelton?” It was obvious this one was different for you, “the one,” and I am so so sorry. Thank you for articulating your grief so we can share it with you, and I hope this collective virtual embrace will give you the strength you need - hang tough friend.❤️
Thank you for sharing your story and Lynne with us. Thanks for being real and just so sorry. We are here for you.
When I woke up Monday and went to download your recent episode and read the title, I broke down, we’ve never met, but similar things I grew up in Massachusetts till 1990, we are both about the same age and we both love Ireland. I’ve been listening to you for a long time, so even though we have never met, I feel I know you, I don’t know what to say, So I won’t drag this out. Thank you for what you do.
Your grieving was so overwhelming been there myself my heart and soul ache for you Sorry for your loss truly!Marc is an incredible interviewer People who I think are not interesting Well they are fascinating once Marc gets them talking When Marc laughs it’s a snicker can’t get enough of this funky stuff 🐾
The podcast is great. Always intimate, funny, and cerebral. I’ve been a fan since you were doing Late Night w/ Conan and the half hour Comedy Central Presents show I watched in the late 90s I think. I am so sorry about your loss, and my deepest love and condolences go to you and all of her loved ones. I mourn with you and send my love during this awful, confusing, and bleak time.
Your current Lynn Shelton episode had me in “empathetic tears”. I’ve been a long time listener and fan of your stand-up since the 90’s. I love you and I hope you’re still doing the ‘thing’
May your memories of Lynn help ease your loss!
Like a million other people, I feel like I know you and you’re one of my friends. I’m sending you so much love and many good vibes. Thank you for opening up to us. We love you.
Sending you strength and love, Marc.
Thank you for sharing your grief. Since I heard the news I have been heartbroken for you (and for Lynn and her son). Having had parenting much like yours, I know what it must have meant to find someone that made you feel seen, loved and safe. You have a right to be devastated. We will all be here to ride it out with you.
I’ve listened to just a few minutes of your podcast about the death of your partner. I was at first shocked at how you could talk to millions of people about something so so personal. But then I realized that we are your friends, and you talking so frankly and emotionally about her is what you do with friends. And your explanation of your relationship and your love and your loss can teach us all about the importance of people in our lives. Thank you.
Hang on there
Thanks so much for the intensely personal tribute to Lynn. Lynn and I spoke for a few moments when she received a cash award for her film, We Go Way Back. It was only a moment yet so vivid in her gratitude and complete enthusiastic elegance. Lynn later sent an unexpected and lovely note. I love her work and she is forever in my personal memory book. I had a moment, you had much longer, we are so lucky. My heart is with you.
Marc, I’m one of the many longtime fans who have watched your tv shows and enjoyed so many episodes of your podcast. The episode about losing Lynn is so moving. I’m crying as I listen along. I’m so sorry for your loss and the world’s loss of Lynn ♥️
Marc. You are in so many of our hearts and thoughts, wish that helped you more.
I’m so very sorry for your loss. I was devastated when I heard. I don’t know you personally, but I feel so sad. All I can do is pray for healing your broken heart. 🙏
I can’t express how heartbroken I am Marc. Thank you for sharing during this time. You have helped me and so many others during our tough times. No that you are loved brother. My condolences to you and Lynn’s family and friends!
You are valued and we love you! We need you! Please take care of yourself!
Marc I’m a longtime listener and just woke from a Monday afternoon nap to hear about this. I thot it had to be wrong. Your a sane voice in the storm for us all Marc and through that we’ve all come to love you and since you’ve been with Lynn we could hear and feel how happy you finally had become. So sorry brother. TV
So devastated to hear the passing of Lynn. My heart is breaking for you.
Dear Marc, I was very saddened to hear of Lynn’s passing. My sincerest condolences to you and to Lynn’s family. As an avid listener to your show, it was a privilege to get to know Lynn through you. I loved hearing the stories of your relationship as you two grew closer together. I could hear the positive influence she had on your life, and I was rooting for you two to succeed in building a happy and healthy relationship. Even though I didn’t personally know Lynn, I miss her already. I’ll be thinking of you during this difficult time. I hope you’re eventually able to find peace. If at any time you need help, please reach out to me. With love, Joe
Even during the most tragic part of his life, Marc has the ability to comfort his audience after the loss of his partner, Lynn. I didn’t know I could love the show more, but now I do. Marc is an amazing human being and a comfort to the soul.
I love you, Marc, and am very sorry for your loss. Hang in there and take care of yourself.
Marc, I’m so heartbroken for you. ❤️ 😭 I just started listening to your podcast a couple of months ago after your NPR episode, but your love for Lynn was very evident. Take care of yourself and Monkey.
Mark, beautiful heart expanding share. How wonderful to now know this depth of love with Lynn. I am so sorry for your loss. I send you so much love.
So very sorry.
I’m so sorry Marc. Rest In Peace Lynn.
I’m so sorry for your loss. What a beautiful tribute to Lynn. Sounds like she was an amazing, wonderful person. Thank you for sharing your special memories with us.
Thank you for sharing and being your most vulnerable with the world year after year. Wish I could take some of your pain away.
Marc. You are amazing. May your heart heal and you carry Lynn ‘s love in you forever now and forward. A true love story! xo LBM
Marc, sending my love to you during these extremely difficult times. Thank you for always letting us in. I am sharing the grief, so sorry for the loss of Lynn. My thoughts are with you.
I’m so sorry for your loss. I can’t believe this terribly sad news.
Your tribute to Lynn Shelton as a director and a life partner is beautiful. My heart goes out to you. I’m so happy you found someone to teach you to accept love. I’m so sorry it was for such a short time. Stay strong. 😘
I can’t quit crying for you, Marc. We know what you lost. Thank you for sharing so much with us. We love and you and we’re behind you.
Your ability to just be natural and loose is obviously infectious. I can listen to a long form podcast that a celebrity does with another host and then yours while they are obviously promoting the same thing, and other than the mention of said project and world events the conversations are 100% different. You seem to get them natural and authentic nine times out of ten. You can make me go down a rabbit hole and pursue a body of work for someone I had never heard of, or reengage with an Artist I thought I had “known”. You are one of the best.
Thank you for what you do. I’ve listened since the beginning and I’m forever grateful for your voice. Much love.
Listening since 2012. You’ve saved my day more than once. You’ve saved my week more than once. You’ve given us hope and consistency You are our voice of reason, sanity, and empathy. Stay strong and stay safe. You deserve love.
I’m so sorry to hear about your tragedy. My heart goes out to you.
Marc, I am so sorry for your loss. Sending you love, strength, and courage. Discovering your comedy and podcast during a time of immense pain in my own life offered me a great deal of solace, wish I could do the same for you.
I am so sorry for your broken heart. You are beloved Marc Maron and bring light to many, please find your way through the darkness.
It’s the middle of the night and I am thinking of you. I just want to tell you how sorry I am. It is heartbreaking. Sending you strength and love. Love from a stranger. You mean so much to so many. Xxxxxx
I have been following you for years, with respect that grew to love. I was happy with you in your life with Lynn. I can only say the only words that have ever helped me in times like this; we’ll be around.
Marc, I’m so very sorry for the loss of Lynn. You are an inspiration and I love you brother!
My heart goes out to you Mr. Maron. I wish you strength and courage. My deepest condolences. I think most people that listen to you feel you immense loss.
Dear Marc, You do such a great job with interviewing and providing such great content! I don’t agree with you all the time on your political opinions and that’s ok. I hope you know how many people love you and are thinking of you during this difficult time.
Just read about Lynn’s passing. I am so sorry Mark. I grieve and share tears with you today.
I’ve treasured these podcasts, especially since COVID. Marc just drills down with his folks. He is so consistent in an inconsistent time. I was so very sorry to hear about Lynn.
COM school graduate here. Podcast is great. Have loved listening to your Interview style develop. Thinking of you now. No more words.
Great Interviews. Personal in a way that makes you feel like family. Take good care. Be Strong. Love and Positive Vibes your way❌⭕️❌⭕️❌⭕️
I enjoy listening to his interviews but the 1st 10 minutes of ranting and slipping in his political view points in every episode is a little much. I think the interview he did with Cate Blanchett was not cool. She was on your show to promote her tv series and you turned it into a rant on how her character was a villain because she has different views than you. You probably lost her show viewership rather than brought it any. I personally have lots of different opinions on politics but I don’t weave them into every single conversation I have. Your opinion on politics is just that your opinion... you are assuming everyone shares in your opinion including your guests that are there to promote their current movie/tv show.... Anyway, he gets good actors on his show and I really enjoy listening to them and I can ignore a slide comment here and there but sometimes it goes on and on.... this isn’t a talk radio it’s a podcast interviewing celebrities. (But that’s just my opinion)
Hey Google? When do I unsubscribe? “When Little Richard’s death is rolled into a Google promo.”
Love your conversation style. Always entertaining.
I am really liking today's podcast with Liz Garbus. I'm not always very engaged by filmmaker guests. This is a great interview and a brilliant engaging guest. Best Sarah Black
I love listening to the sports discussion. Bill correcting Bert the whole time is the best!
Yes! Here in the Bay Area, San Jose. Mustard Dog used to be my favorite. But haven’t been there in years! Love your show Marc. Keeps me sane.
The only piece of heaven I had left, and the kids took that away from me too 🤯😭
Marc used to be open to interview anyone and I really enjoyed his style. Nw he only has people in that don’t challenge him whatsoever. Makes for boring fluff.
What can I say besides Marc is a legend.
Not all people that live in Georgia or the Atlanta area are “backwards” and can hold conversations that express different viewpoints without argument. That part of the show with Laura Linney showed your own ignorance.
Ive been listening to Mark for 7 years now and I always look forward to Monday and Thursday mornings. Right now, our world is in the middle of a pandemic and things feel upside down in every direction. I find myself using the first 10 / 15 min of every new episode during quarantine as a little therapy session. Marc talks about how he is coping, how his cats are coping and asks if we are ok. Im ok and I need to hear that other people are ok, thanks for always being real and not glossing over what everyone is going through right now.
Mark moron is a hack of a comedian, my wife bought tickets,,, so bad i walked out, we were in san Francisco so i should have expected the libtardary
Can’t get through a so called interview podcast without this waste throwing insults at the President. This punk couldn’t shine Trump’s shoes. Go back to using little man so we can be done with you already!
Mark is great at chatting with people and quietly drilling down to get so much more about the person he’s talking to. I feel like I’m hanging out with friends. I’ve been enjoying Mark’s chats for awhile but I’m getting more from them during our Covid-19 isolation. Thanks for your hard work Mark.
“...and they don’t know when to die” Very true Marc
Female Guest: I’ll finish my own thank you.
It’s too bad. It used to be one of the best. now it’s not.
Marc, loved you on Glow and never knew you before. I’ve watched all 3 seasons like 20 times. The Fran Drescher interview was awful. Not your fault, she is the most self centered ego maniac ever. I think I heard you yawn a few times,😜. Stay well you are an inspiration to a lot of people.
What an amazing woman. Global icon. More of this. Thank you.
For whatever reason, whenever I feel anxious on my way to work, I just pop on an episode and I calm down. I can’t explain it but I’m grateful to have it around!
What a treat to help get through these crazy times... Thanks Marc.
I started listening to Maron around three years ago. Than I paid Sticher only to listen to all the Maron stuff I had missed. I didn’t give a F*** about the other stuff they had, because. Nothing beats Maron. Yes. I said that. I love Marc Maron’s pod. It’s the only celeb gab I listen to. Because, Marc Maron really delves into those he interviews. That kind of turns me on. Hearing about the rich and the famous on such a real level. Mr. Maron is very masterful at getting Comfort and thus, meat out of his Guest. He’s excellent at communicating and I adore his Openness. Marc is really unique in this aspect. He really talks to you and those he has on his show. A real nice guy. Check him out. Travis. ATL.
I don’t know if it’s because we are of the same era or same music taste or similar political view or if it’s just because he is funny but I love this podcast. It’s a solid go to.
Great variety of guests and great conversations. I really enjoy the intros and guitar jam at the end as well! If you get butthurt from a liberal guy speaking his mind, then just skip to the interview
Most of his interviews are set around white folks the very few times he chooses to interview folks of color you can clearly hear Marc in action; he usually digs for negativity with no concern for his actions. Terrible not as bad as Rogan but still terrible. Unsubscribing.
Thank goodness Marc interrupted a lot because this guy’s train of thought was really hard to follow.
Marc embodies white guilt and nervousness around black people. Note to Marc (and douchey hipsters): black people (and in fact all non-white people) are humans, have feelings and intuition, and should be treated like human beings. PS, Marc is an awful interviewer- let your guests speak without interruption just for a few seconds. Its not about you Marc.
Thank you for these tribute shows Marc . 🙏🏻
Love the show High Maintenance. Thanks for interviewing him. You sound great in your new classic guitar. Be safe and stay well.
Just listened to the latest episode. I love Lynn Shelton. Her laugh is so infectious. You guys make an adorable couple. Please have her on more often. Perhaps you can interview her for the show if you run out of banked episodes
Deleting. What a lib douche wad! Bye.
For a show about addiction, this is just that! Love it and so happy to have you now more than ever!
WAY too many hateful political rants
I really enjoyed your interview with Ronan Farrow. Can't get enough of him. He is so complex and multifaceted. You have a great way of putting your guests at ease and drawing out their most complex stories. Thanks so much for the great job you do.
But now I feel so badly about myself hearing how magical his life sounds. The ppl he became friends with in the random college, how a big time manager signed and got him an agent sight unseen while he was walking around with a busted face, the Essex house hotel story-who does this stuff happen to? Not me... and all his famous friends who helped each other out early on. Does life come this easily to everyone? Wow. He seems to have the best luck of anyone I’ve ever heard. Lucky dude.
I loved this interview. It was great to hear you two talk about old times.
Letterman had really bad case of shingles.
Great podcast. Any neg review basically reads like this- “HE DID SOMETHING I DIDNT LIKE for 5 seconds out of 2hrs. rah rah rah.” And he even admits he is.... we’re always learning & everyone is human.
I’m admittedly WAY behind on the podcast world, but having listened for a couple weeks now that I have a excruciatingly long daily commute, I’m hooked! Marc is amazing on so many levels...sincere and funny as hell. I love listening to his interviews and takes on all that he and his guests discuss.
Marc is the king of interruptions, he’s always throwing people off and talking over them. But he has great guests
I am listening to the Juliette Lewis interview, and, Marc! You don’t let her get a single sentence out without interrupting her! I’ve been listening since the beginning—I love you—but the interrupting has reached a fever pitch. Maron reminds me here of a cokehead who has no patience or capacity to listen to his guest. I want to emphasize that I ordinarily love his interviews. It’s just that, occasionally, I want to hear his guest finish a single thought. Here, I have the urge to give him a slap and a cigarette, and remind him it’s supposed to be a CONVERSATION.
The recent interview was so amazing, you never see Juliette on any interview shows so this was a real treat Marc got to talk to her.
Douchey, insider showbiz circle jerk.
Marc has such a great personality and asks all the right questions. He really knows how to keep the flow of the show going. It’s informative and entertaining. Love it!
Mark has a gift for having honest conversations with a wide range of people. I love the energy and vulnerability he brings to every episode!
Your interview with Ronan Farrow was excellent. I’ve been listening to you for years. This was the best ever.
Always loved listening to you, thanks for being you! When you’re back in Orlando, stay at the Four Season Orlando, close to the Disney Parks and you can have as little or none or as much Disney. You will love it and be relaxed with awesome restaurants, spa and golf onsite. Cheers! Nonna
I’ve been listening for years, and love a good interview. Nobody does it better than Marc.
Please, please stop talking over people. Mandy Moore can’t bet a full sentence out. WHO TALKS OVER LEO. I’ll probably keep listening though 🤣
I thought you were a bit annoying at first and loved to hear your own voice but ,I hung in there and became addicted. Please keep them coming. 👍🏻
Hey Podcasts app, you have the wrong Dan Levy picture posted!!!!!!! Love the show, been listening for years!!
I hate seeing the only harsh reviews from people who dislike the podcast because your a trump hating liberal. From a trump hating liberal—I get so bummed out hearing interviews that could have been great but you are so condescending and down putting, I have to turn it off. Just because you don’t feel like someone can do something for you “budding” movie career, doesn’t mean they don’t have an interesting story to tell.
Intro was weird today, eh? FIVE STARS
Love Marc’s interviewing style and quirkinesses. I don’t like the current direction towards giving airtime to guests solely because they have some corporate movie or project to peddle. Ugh. Ashton Kutcher? The Ranch?
Marc, listener from the get-go. Lately, don’t know if it’s the nicotine change, or what, but you’re starting to interrupt the hell out of your guests. One of my favorite things about you was always that you knew how to let someone finish their thoughts. Please don’t lose that! Listen back to a couple and see if I’m nuts (could be). Anyway, cheers and take care, Zach
Didn’t think I would like this interview, but I did. I can’t say I enjoy most of his projects, but he’s an interesting dude.
I didn’t know who this dude was, but he is one of those people kind of like “the Rock”. (Dwayne Johnson?) who is positive, strong, vulnerable. Just a good male role model.
Mark - worst interview ever. No reflection on you. Stopped listening after the 30th ‘like’..
I’m so glad to have found this podcast. Marc’s honesty, humor and interviewing style have me hooked. He’s the type of interviewer who is the draw himself, and not the guest. I listen to every episode even when I don’t know who the guest is, because that’s how excellent an interviewer Marc is! I’ll be paying for a Stitcher premium subscription as soon as I’m done with the free episodes available. This is the first (and to date only) podcast I’m willing to pay for. Looking forward to continuing to listen and support!
Usually like this podcast for the most part but couldn’t finish the Ashton Kutcher episode. From what I gathered through the first 30 minutes, it’s just Marc repeating everything Ashton says, then laughing at him condescendingly. Like an obnoxious amount of refusing to move past certain parts because he just made fun of him. He even apologized once for doing it.... then kept doing it.
But skip first 15-20 minutes to get to the interview if you don’t want to here Mr. Maron’s diary.
Excellent talk. Really have a sense of who he is.
What a consistent f’ing downer of a show. Hey Marc: the entire world wasn’t in therapy. Or a drunk. Or on drugs. Or have “issues.” This entire podcast can be summed up as Marc asking “Why are YOU so successful, and why does 94% of America seem to have no idea who I am??” A colossal, huge waste of time.
Marc is awesome and the interviews are always compelling. Great work.
Thoughtful, compelling, funny discussions. I ❤️MM!
So who doesn’t love a guy that is trying to be honest about his inner and outer work? Balanced diets, life with pets, women and friends. He’s just the right balance of sweet and sour.
A terrific podcast podcast provided you skip the first 20 minutes and the guest is male. Maron interviews chicks like he’s on an awkward first date and he’s already paid for parking and dinner.
Marc is a literally propaganda agent. He worked for Air America. A propaganda program.... Check in from time to time to see if a great guest is on but Marc is a miserable SJW who refuses to have different views on. Ur better off listening to Rogan guys & Gals.
Marc is a master of interviewing. Love his questions, really in depth. Love the pre interview information. Very interesting.
This is fantastic.
I really enjoyed listening to your interview with Brad and Leonardo. Quentin Tarantino is my favorite director/producer. I loved once upon a time in Hollywood. I love the soundtrack too! This interview is my favorite and your interview with Stephen Dorff. 😍
Cried on my way to work at the news of LaFonda’s passing. Thank you for being there with her Marc.
Dear Mark, Thank you so much for doing the podcast with Leonardo and Brad! It was so enjoyable to spend time with two of my faves and I too enjoy when you freak out, it is the best! In these trying times, this was a great escape and a wonderful experience. Thanks again.
This is my first rating of any podcast. I was prompted by the reviews. If I didn’t think this program was not working for me I wouldn’t listen to it. Why would anyone waste time reviewing Maron’s as a person. I like his comedy, enjoy his outlook, sometimes I tune out when he gets repetitive but the show provides a minimum of 3 hours on content a week. I’m a fan, thanks for a decade of entertainment. This is my first year listening. I hope he stays productive another decade.
Maron will always be my favorite podcast. I enjoy listening to the first 15 minutes just to catch up on his life if I’m not interested in his guest. 5 stars.
Marc, you offended me and my devotion to Jesus Christ as you attempted humor by describing your cutting off my Lord and Savior Jesus Christs’ body parts, and using them as candles on your menorah.
The first episode I listened to was the one with Stephen Dorff and it was great! I’ve always been a fan of his and this increased that fandom tenfold. He’s such a down to earth guy and very nice. Great episode and great podcast. Will definitely keep listening.
He used to be good, but now all he cares about is his fame. He only cares about people who can do something for him. If anyone is perceived as being even slightly more talented, he shows his jealousy. He's ruined his podcast. And an unkind person all around.
I’ve only been subscribed for about a year and a half, I’m a little behind. Personally, all movies, music, people, etc. that are slow to grow on me tend to eventually become my favorites. This podcast joins the ranks. Marc Maron is an excellent interviewer, I truly appreciate the unique banter/conversational style. I love the catch-up intros, and blues/rock outros. ;) I’m sorry for your loss, Maron. Rest In Peace LaFonda.
I greatly enjoy Marc’s monologues at the beginning and end of the show. But I don’t enjoy the constant interruptions when he is talking with the guests. He always interrupts with “yeah yeah mhms,” and questions that derail what the guest is getting at. Overall Marc is a great podcaster, and I love the show. But I would love for him to let the guests finish their thoughts.
Profound views on society, politics, and culture. If you don’t like the first 15 minutes you are not worthy of the privilege of listening to Marc’s interviews. He offers us fan’s insightful, inspiring life advice. Marc continues to grow and share his stories. I am grateful I found him.
So after listening twice a week for three or four years to neurotic Mr. Whiny Britches, he’s finally coming to Tampa. Third row STRAZ Center. Oh we get you Maron, we get you just fine. And now we’re paying to see you, so you’d better be goddamned good!
I love how Marc is so open with his life and mental health issues. I love his podcasts and how sometimes it feels like he is opening my own wounds with his questions.
The best of the best
This a very funny and thoughtful podcast. Marc is an open book and makes his audience feel like a big family.
Deeply moving, reassuring, hilarious, insightful, engaging... humanity at its best! I can mark passages in my life remembering which interview I listened to. Can’t say enough. I bow in gratitude. Boomer Lives!
The best stories are of personal struggles and complex beginnings, bringing personal understanding to the greatest show-men and show-women of our time. Having said that, I’d love to see all the podcasts here but there are enormous gaps and a minimally selected few which are available for free.
Your conversation with Lilli Taylor really hit me for so many reasons. Her voice is such a comfort for an 80’s baby and I loved how you guys connected over common experiences. She struck me as so real and kind and genuine and warm. Just when I thought I loved her, I loved her more when she started talking about her love of birds. My father is a birder and it has always felt like such a pure and honest and meditative love for life. Her love of birds sealed my connection with her, a connection I never knew I had prior to your podcast. Thank you Marc.
This (and most interviews) was painful to listen to. The purpose was to interview Lili, right? Because nearly every time she tried to talk or answer YOUR questions you immediately cut her off to talk about yourself or some other random person. What a shame. So. We barely get to hear any content from her.
I initially listened to the podcast bc of Brene Brown being interviewed and now I’m hooked. I listen to A LOT of podcasts and Marc Maron is the best in my opinion. I can’t believe I hadn’t listened earlier. Funny, relatable, self deprecating, introspective, gracious. Because of his honesty he’s able to get the guests to be real and honest. He’s having a real conversation and we get to listen in. Thanks Marc!
I absolutely love these interviews and wish I had found them years earlier. I am addicted to listening to them and tell everyone I know how wonderful they are. I love Mark and can relate to many of the things he expresses. Thank you for enlightening me and making me laugh. You are amazing.
Maron is one of the best comics working today, and also one of the best living interviewers. I’ve been a regular listener for three and a half years now and having journeyed through hundreds of talks I still look forward to each new interview. His recent Rick Baker talk particularly floored me. Jump in at any point, he’s always engaging! Boomer lives!
My only criticism is that he interrupts his guests too much. I cringe when a guest is in the middle of answering a question only to have Marc interrupt and sometimes even change the subject (!!!).
Finally! I listened to Kate Nash as a teenager. When Glow first season was streaming I was not following what happened to Kate Nash, but seeing her on the show brought me back to her first album. Enjoyed listening to your interview and getting to hear all the craziness she went through. Glad you finally did this talk was wondering since season one of Glow when you were going to have her on although I knew it would of eventually happened. Loved it and always a pleasure.
Marc is The Godfather of peeled onion podcasting. He has a gift for cutting to the point and allowing his guests to open their books. Success well deserved.
Marc is a Coward. I have to admit that Marc is the best interviewer and I listen to most of his conversations. However he often interrupts his guests either to talk about himself of finish their thought. I can’t tell you how many times I liked the question and wanted to hear the answer then he cut the guest off. With so many reviews saying the same thing, you would think he would change that. But I suppose that pathology is him being his self centered self. And I’m really sick of his “woke” messages. I’m sick of his far left political stance. He is a guy who believes his opinions are facts. Then when he changes his opinions he then thinks his new opinions are facts. Yes I know that this show is about Marc and his self centered narcissistic, neurotic, toxic personality so you get what you get. I have no problem with his hating Trump but he also considers people who like Trump to all be white supremacists. He said that the only reason a person would not vote for Hillary to be because we have mommy issues. He is a self righteous know it all who surrounds himself with people who thinks the same as he dies. He never interviews people with opposing viewpoints. He is like a bully who throws rocks at people from his window then hides. If he is so politically knowledgeable he should invite James Woods over or Ben Shapiro, But they would eat him alive. So how about Tim Allen or Patricia Richardson. And make the talk about politics if he thinks he is so correct. But he won’t because he is a coward. None the less the interviews are really good and truth be told so is his stand up and I’ll continue to listen. If I were a liberal like him I’d boycott the show for someone disagreeing with my opinions. But since I’m a rational free speech loving conservative I’ll only detract 1 star for his immaturity. I had to lower my review stars because he just gets worse I just listened to “Why racial bias isn’t bigotry” It’s seems to me to be a clever manipulation of cherry picked statistics to align with what she wanted to be true. Marc terrible political podcast gets worse by the day. He just repeats big media buzzwords words that he doesn’t understand like “fascist.” He has no idea what a fascist is. And how he keeps worrying what Trump will do to Jews is crazy. Trumps daughter is Jewish and he is the most pro-Israel President in decades. As much as I disagree with people like Marc who want to get rid of the electoral college, I try to tolerate them as people. But Marc really hates peoples who disagree with him. He said something like this “If you don’t vote for Hillary it’s because you have mommy issues” He thinks all Trump voters are all white supremacists. Like there are no middle of the road Trump voters. He is so very uneducated. Think of all the stupid things self centered things he has done in his life....and now I’m supposed to think he is making good decisions. Drug addicts are selfish. And self centered and just getting off the drugs does not always change that mind set. Marc sees his own views as facts. That’s his problem. It’s the personal insults against his audience that really get me to fight back against him. Then he interviews people who only agree with him. I’ve been trying to separate the interview from his politics but after he personally insults 25% of his audience it becomes difficult. And sure his self loathing, yet elitist , know-it-all persona makes up part of the experience. I don’t listen as much as I used to and I do find myself turning off the interviews before they are finished when he becomes too insulting do that is why my reviews of him get lower. But sometimes they are pretty good if the guest is a good talker. But this Rachel Maddow interviews was just the worst thing ever. Marc, if you keep doing politics I’ll review you as a political commentator and for that I give you zero stars.
I really like listening to Mark I interview his guests. I believe he has a real talent and his conversation is engaging. When Mark chooses to go off on his bias rants it is a turn off and I immediately turn it off and find a different cast.
Writing a review and giving 5 stars just in spite of all the cry babies whining over Maron bashing trump. Go cry some more you children. Hahahaha
(note - this review is specific to this episode only - i'll leave other reviews for other episodes when i feel so inclined) so, once again, i'm introduced to an actor that i've certainly seen in film, but really didn't know much about and have honestly had little to no interest in. yet, this guy, edward norton, managed to engage me for an hour or so as he talked w/ maron and i baked banana bread and oatmeal cookies in my kitchen. norton was erudite and professorial to the degree that i really needed to focus on what he was saying as i multi-tasked (and thus probably need to relisten to the whole interview) in order to absorb everything he said - he certainly could have been a little more direct and taken himself and his art a little less seriously, but all-in-all he was interesting, if a bit irritating in his uber philosophical and slightly insular perspective of his experience(s) as an actor. as usual, marc was a stellar interviewer - on pace with his guest, ready to meet him w/ his own knowledge and experience base, but, still, trying, and largely failing, to lighten and/or personalize the interview a bit. norton didn't seem to want that. so, this is a serious one, folks. if you're interseted in acting theory, et al, you’ll be interested in the material, but afterwards, if you're a cookie and banana bread baking type of intellectual, you'll be ready for a little levity and maybe a brisk walk outside.
Title of review explains it all. Marc Maron is a deep state puppet. His podcast is pure propaganda, controlled by the swamp. Do your research.
I searched Marc’s name after watching “Marc Maron” on Netflix, which is so good! Started this podcast and was liking it and now I love it! Huge props for bringing Edward Norton on. He’s always seemed so private so I was surprised when this episode came out. As Marc says, Edward is intense. I really enjoyed this episode.
This podcast is awful. This guy doesn't know what he's talking about & CONSTANTLY interrupts his guests. He rants like a brainwashed progressive about fake climate change & Trump. It's like needles in my ears. TDS is strong on this moron.
I thought this guy was a narcissistic jerk only playing roles, but apparently he is as awful, unintelligent and bitter in his life too. He thinks he is edgy by being angry and talking smack about the President but it just makes him a boring smugnorant celebrity who has no clue about policy & probably didn’t even finish high school. If you want to hear yet ANOTHER narcissistic evil spirited uneducated celebrity rant lies like everyone else in Hollywood..knock yourself out with this awful podcast.
Maron’s consistent, moronic bashing of the President has really not only brought this podcast downhill but makes the host sound COMPLETELY idiotic! Drug addicts like this host are the last that should offer up opinions on the country or the President. I use to appreciate his interviews until Maron, like most D grade sheep celebrities started interjecting there hateful comments about President Trump and absolutely no substance to the crap they spew! Enjoy your failing podcast loser!
Please don’t ever remove the episode with President Obama. I felt compelled to listen to it again just so I could remember when we had a President who was articulate, intelligent, insightful, inspirational, had a sense of humor, and was actually sane! Thanks 🙏
Macca is a kook guy and my fav beatle by the way
I discovered Marc Maron after watching GLOW on Netflix. Then, I discovered his podcast and I'm so glad that I did. His interviews, more like he's sitting down with an old friend, and I get to listen in. I enjoy the down to earth and "real" chats with some interesting people.
Loved the show on Netflix and now loving the podcast.
The show isn’t bad. He has some interesting guests but it’s obvious this guy is all about telling the guests more about himself and his problems than really diving into the interview. Also he is a little pushy with his liberal ideas and hatred of Trump. Not all of us want political ideas and political correctness pushed on us constantly. All politicians on either side scumbags and in it for themselves. Once this country realizes that we can move on and move forward.
First three albums are nothing but making fun of people, you know, comedy. Now he bows to liberal culture and talks trash about comedians who mock people. Unfollowed. Give back every penny you made off your first three albums HACK.
What’s the name of the song played at the end of Rachel Maddow’s episode?
Love your standup, acting, and podcasting. I’m a bit behind on episodes, so I’m listening to you talk about taking your cat, Monkey, in to the vet... As a cat owner and veterinarian, I recommend trying Gabapentin. It’s been proven recently to help calm and slightly sedate aggressive, scared, or anxious cats prior to clinic trips. Worth talking to your vet about to reduce stress for both you and the cats! Wishing you the best in your career, keep up the good work!
Marc Maron is a horrible interviewer.... And yet, he has done this so long that he gets great guests. Fast forward 20 minutes (save yourself from marc maron personal vomit - which nobody cares about. Interviews are okay... if Marc doedsn’tinterupt (marc always interrupts) . Cut out the last ten minutes when Marc plays guitar.... he likes to play guitar for some reason (he's ot bad..... i just don’t care) it's not awful.... but it's not great. The only reason he is on the top ten list is because he has done it for so long (because his stand up career died) Pick and choose from the celebrities you want to hear. Marc, himself, is LAME and boring to hear.
The guests are great, but I’d love more of just Marc!!!
How can you NOT go into ... deeply her ability to remember Everything??!?!? Love you , Noel Leon
Love the podcast! You haven’t read emails in a while...I like it when you do that!
Great interviews. And since I know Marc only reads the negative reviews... f*~k those guys dude. They don’t get it. This would be a great place to interject a guitar solo.
Used to love this show, it was one of my original subscribed podcasts and the interviews were almost always gripping and revelatory. The past few years I realized I was listening out of habit. Many guests now are promoting a project and obviously not interested in discussing anything revealing. It’s tedious and boring to listen to rich people talk in a carefully edited and scrubbed manner about their lives. Marc is often more interesting, open, and revealing than his guests, I’d rather just listen to him talk about his own life for an hour. Sadly unsubscribed; the end of an era.
While I enjoyed the podcast , it was a little gross how he tied in some seemingly “deep” thoughts on issues with the world and making a change to ones life to a hair loss/growth ad. He lost some respectability on that one. Just wanted to get that out there.
Always like Marc as a standup, especially in the late 90s/2000s. But he sounds unpolished, doesn’t do any research/preparation for his guests and worst of all, isn’t much of a listener. He’s more like waiting to speak. After listening to Conan’s podcast, hard to listen to Maron. Conan is funnier and knows how to interview.
I’ve listened to this podcast for years. During some of the talks (Bruce Dern) M. M. just needs to learn the art of listening more closely; understand that a witty comment can sometimes act as a hindrance, and when not to cut a discussion short.
Love Marc’s honesty & guitar-playing skills! I also think he’s an amazing interviewer. So intelligent & so real!
I feel like I know more about Marc than I do his guests. The first part of the show is him talking and talking about nothing important. Then he interrupts his guests to talk about himself. He goes back and forth during the interview and it often seems like he hasn’t researched the individuals he is talking to. The entire show is awkward and his guests seem uncomfortable at times. It is all made worse by his annoying guitar playing that doesn’t seem to have a purpose. Ugh!...
1. Never talk about yourself. 2. Please leave out the guitar stuff.
Its like listening to my dad talk to his neighbor in his garage. Maron failed early and often.
Otherwise love Patricia Clarkson
Your podcast is a gift twice a week rain or shine! By the way, l am ever hopeful that there will be a Donald Fagen interview!
Aside from being a favorite comic, he’s one of the most insightful and attentive interviewers ever. He could get a palace guard to tell their life story. He’ll pull these questions out of the air which make you think he’s waited years to ask them, and knowing the guests he gets he probably has every now and then. There’s a reason this guy got a living president to talk to him in his garage.
Great stand-up, greater human
My brain broke because I could not stop hyper focusing on Marc and Betty taking turns saying the word “Vestibule”.... For the love of all things holy stop saying “Monster” and “Vestibule”.. Great episode! They seem familiar and comfortable with each other.
Fat shame a nine year old? I can live with that! Kick a beagle in the face? How dare you!
“Betty Gilpin & Marc” [You] are admittedly a very good episode. Nonetheless, go vestibule yourself!!!
Marc’s podcast is wonderfully entertaining. The guests are diverse and interesting. That said, I’d rather have a botched colonoscopy than listen to David Shields. What a pompous individual! Blech!
Love Marc, love the conversations except for the one with David Shields. I would rather listen to Marc go through his record collection than that dude. Almost always a great listen with Marc. Still waiting on that signed insert for “Waiting for the Punch” that I pre-ordered. David Shields needs to just write.
Yeah, I could probably pay via Patreon for access to all pods: but I won’t. There are just to many good pods that interest me, and only 2 ears to listen with.
As always a smooth listen with some guitar at the end thanks mark.
O.G. and the funniest! Thanks Marc!
I get the criticisms of Marc, he’s definitely imperfect. What I like about him is that he puts genuine soul into his show and is kind to his interviewees. A perfect podcast for long car rides.
Keep up the great work Marc.
I kept waiting for the interviews to begin but Marc just went on and on and on and on and on and on. Didn't stick around to even listen to more. Not sorry.
A great podcast. Terrific guests and an excellent interviewer.
I like this podcast. But Mr. Maron has to stop talking so much over the guests. He’s a fascinating guy; I like his standup. But his podcasts include guests and he needs to let them speak. Share the road, man. Be a host. Take a Valium. Smell the roses.
Rule one, let your guests speak. He talks way too much and his questions are boring. He’s obviously not preparing for any of them. There are way better podcasts. His is a waste of time.
I only wish I knew about this podcast sooner...ughh...Marc Maron is so good!!! Love it!!
Marc doesn’t do enough research on his guests and instead asks really basic questions like “who was in that movie with you?” over and over in a very bored way. It almost seems like he’s trying to sound cool by not bothering to know anything about their career. He also talks about some of his guests work in a pretty dismissive way that feels like he’s negging them (particularly the Mandy Moore episode).
Marc, you get better and better. Your recent Greg Kinnear segment was terrific especially the quick thumbnail sketch of your journey to sobriety. I have a guest to suggest: are you familiar with Sam Kinison’s brother Bill? Very interesting and funny guy. He’d be great.
The original podcast is still just.the.best. period. Marc is so real and eminently relatable, wonderful conversations with famous people who I love to hear say more than 2 minute soundbites; keep it up Marc thank you!!
I never write reviews but after listening to Marc rant and rave about watermelon I literally was crying from laughing sooo hard. I think he has been in my house since I do the same thing he does ! I think we were brothers and sisters from another mother !!! LOVE his show !!!
Wasn’t so long ago we had a middle aged ex drug addict in the White House. Dunno if he had cats but he did have an IQ that was 1/2 of Maron’s. Marc can talk about whatever he wants. If you don’t like his politics listen to a Real credible source like RT.
The Phil Donahue of the blank generation!
...he talks too much! Yes he paved the podcast way and does his research on the guests. But he needs to let some oxygen into the interviews , it gets tiring hearing him monopolize or tell the guests what they mean rather than having them say what they mean. His interview with Obama was fantastic.
I'm one of those that skip the beginning. I learn enough about Marc during his interviews, don't need to hear anything more. Great interviewer. Really listens and is very knowledgable. Guests are always surprised when he knows so much! Oh, and Obama. Need I say more?
Great podcast--love the way Marc does his homework and is always respectful. His interviews have depth and are entertaining. Highly recommend!
Marc Marin is somewhat humorous but who in their right mind wants to hear about politics from a middle-aged ex-drug addict with cats?!? Guests are ok but come on.
This pod used to be about scrappiness, hunger, and a determination to strive upward. But after achieving “success” the host now uses the pod to advertise, self promote and complain about not being happy. Enjoy those high hedges. Goodbye.
I save up podcasts to listen to if I have a long drive or tedious things to do at work. There are too many moments in Marc’s conversations to count where there’s an honest discussion of uncomfortable topics that make me feel as though everything in my life is ok and I’m not alone. Marc has an incredibly keen sense of what’s going on-he’s never judgmental no matter the issue being discussed. This is my a sure thing podcast and the best and most reliable travel companion.
I find Maron's conversations with comedians to generally be the best ones, as well as those with people he actually has a history with. His stated m.o. is to not do much advance research on his subjects - sometimes that doesn't matter if the person is engaging enough, but it can result in some disastrous shows (the one with Joan Jett comes to mind). Also, lately I tend to skip over the long intros, which are very self-involved, to put it kindly. Despite all that, Maron deserves a lot of respect for carving out a large swath in the podcast world, as well as for scoring some very high level guests (Obama, McCartney). Sometimes you have to take the bad with the good, I guess.
Well almost. I went thru a divorced, moved back to my hometown, and hated my life. Then i discovered this podcast and listened every week at work. It made me laugh and i saw a lot of myself in Marc with his thoughts and musings. I look forward to this every week. It was a comfort i needed and I’m grateful for that in my darkest days. Thanks, man
Boy, Diamond Dave is an exhausting trip! And that is Marc’s forte, he knows when to sit back and let the guest riff. Great show as always and easily the best podcast out there.
This one with David Lee Roth on the WTFpodcast with host Marc Maron. I highly suggest you or your friends play this podcast.
I didn’t know what to expect, but I believe you got the manic intellect of this character. Exhausting and entertaining.
That was wild. This conversation went in so many different directions with so many random references. As always, a pleasure to listen to
A good guest, capable of ignoring Maron's interjection and self-comparisons, can be worth a listen. Otherwise this SoCal misfit underwhelms with his brand of narcissistic self-loathing and his ignorance. He has some good guests though.
Never miss an ep. Marc is the man.
Dude, I know your trying to make $ but the 20 min monologue and ads blow. I listened once and you went on far too long about what your eating, the sound, your gigs...yawn. If Brene wasn’t my spirit animal I wouldn’t have listened to that great discussion. For the love of podcasts 👏🏻dial 👏🏻 back👏🏻 the 👏🏻 crap👏🏻. We’re all fast forwarding through it. Save the time and effort on your part.
He’s in the podcast hall of fame. He gets the best guests and asks engaging questions.
Thanks for making my commute from Burbank to Santa Monica pleasurable. I no longer need CBD to get on the 405.
Powerful powerful podcast. A must hear. Thank you Eve and Mark. A life changing conversation.
I know you want to make some money but the ads in this are too many.
Maron is one hell of an interviewer. He won’t always take an interview where you want, he instead just lets it go where it has to go. This often results in it going deep and he regularly finds something no one else gets. On top of that, unlike most shows, he interviews people in all sorts of different entertainment professions and you end up learning more than you ever thought you would on topics you never considered. Can’t think of any other interview format podcast that expands my horizons while also feeding my obsessions.
Odd mix of sniveling self-pity, slavish adherence to the tiresome political elitism of the Hollywood Left, great guests and questions, and an absolute commitment to cutting off guests in the midst of their thoughtful answers. Please do a modicum of preparation, continue asking great questions and letting the conversation go where it wants to go, and as interesting as you might think your own life might be to everyone, let the guests answer your question without interrupting. Would be great if you occasionally mixed in some challenging thought leaders like Tim Ferris, Sam Harris, Jordan Peterson, Ben Shapiro, etc., but it’s your show and I do appreciate your struggle to stay sober and the challenges core values at odds with your own might present.
Great interviews and guests!
The Most!!! Thank you and now I’m happy !! Basically was asking myself earlier who some of my heroes were and well... you are MM!!!
Eve and Marc thank you for going so deep and being willing to go there and hold the space for this powerful book and discussion. Wow.
Thank you for making my early mornings tolerable. You remind me to have a sense of humor in the middle of the chaos that is life.
This episode spoke to me. So powerful. A perspective I’ve not heard before. Thank you for reading her book and going there. I’m gonna replay this one.
When I saw the episode was 2 1/2 hours long I thought that was crazy! It flew by!!! Congrats on a great podcast!!! Thank you for all the joy!!!!
I like the interviews a lot, but it takes him like 20 minutes to GET to the interview portion.. the podcasts could be 45-60 min instead of 80-100 min.
At first I thought this podcast was an acquired taste, and well, maybe it is a little bit, but so worth acquiring. I have to admit I am addicted to Marc Maron’s show. I think he’s an excellent interviewer, there is a structure to the hour and I always end up feeling like I know the guest and appreciate them so much more than I ever did. There’s an intimacy to this process with Marc Maron that I really enjoy. I love hearing his opening kvetching, he lets it all hang out like an actual human being and that’s the way I like it. Love this podcast.
When Letterman comes on, listen at 1/2 speed. I did it by accident, but it was funny as hell.
Marc, I’m an actor in the biz for over 25 year. Your talks about the acting process with other actors I respect is absolutely invaluable to me. There is no other podcast that digs this deep, in an entertaining way like you do. This is a must listen to any professional or aspiring actor. Kudos brother, thanks for the inspiration! Douglas Tait
Marc’s podcast was one of the first I’ve listened to and I’m a devotee. It’s lovely and soulful to listen in on these, intimate, funny and candid conversations. Marc’s good soul shines through all of it, and gives us a wise way to compartmentalize in these difficult times.
7 years and counting, will never forget your chat with Bob Gollub, keep ‘em coming man!
Very interesting and thoughtful episode. You’re doing great!
Interview the band “DEATH “ From Detroit
I wish I can give more than five stars, but I can’t. This is always a great insight to the interviewees and Marc does an amazing job of humanizing celebrities that I used to view as bigger than life. It’s great that these interviews remind people that celebrities are normal living, breathing human beings with feelings and insecurities. Thank you Marc for also always finding humor within everyone that you sit down and talk with.
Big fan of Marc from the old stand up days when I was looking to see who would pick up the torch after Bill Hicks died. Over 1000 episodes now, utter respect, a truly well earned spot in the podcast Hall of Fame (yes, it is an actual thing). Listened a lot over the years, tend to cherry pick episodes now. I think he might be resting on his laurels. Wish he’d find his edge again and push for sharper, funnier & more aggressive interviews. Full review at andyspodcasterpodcastingpodcast.com
Host should prepare prior to interviewing guests.
I have listened to this podcast for years on and off — I can’t listen consistently because I’ve become tired of Maron’s lack of preparation for guests. He never seems to have read their books, he often has no idea about their movie or tv history and, worse, he doesn’t seem to think that’s necessary — seems so arrogant. His interviews are long so he will often hit on gems over the course of the long conversations — this makes many worth listening to. But regardless ... I always skip the first 15 minutes of every episode where he talks about himself over and over and over. Yeesh.
Marc is an excellent interviewer and gets great guests. I usually just skip the 15 minutes or so at the beginning where he rambles on about whatever. Boomer lives!
Shut up Dragon Nerd. He brings a lot of joy to his fans and intelligence to his interviews. If you want mindless entertainment, then 90% of the movie industry is aimed at you and your quest for up and backs and bright shiny lights. He can have an opinion without you bashing an entire show because you cannot deal with a differing point of view. Keep up the great work Marc!
My favorite podcast
I like Marc, but all of his problems are less real than dragons.
The freak out about “dragon nerds” was just too harsh to fit into my work day. Sounded like the kid in shipping running his mouth but without the “I sound like Bob Dylan” part.
There is a reason he is the best and a legend. I strive to be as good a podcaster at Marc with my own podcast
Marc has great guests but I wish he would stop interrupting them. He is a terrible interviewer. It’s almost as if the guests are there as props for him to talk about himself.
Love love love Marc Maron. The ads on this podcast tho 🤔
Mark, I have listened to every one of your podcasts up to now. I don’t agree with a lot of your political views, but have respected your opinion and how you present them. You have changed your views and/or how you present them, and it has become harder to maintain that respect. The references to “garbage people” on the Vincent Dinofrio was finally too much for me. I don’t want that unnecessary level of hate when listening to an interview of somebody who’s work I have enjoyed. Mark, you can do a great interview, and I wish you continued success. I’m getting out while I can still say that. Thank you for years of entertainment.
I love the variety of guests and Marc is a great interviewer.
Marc Maron is devoid of talent. All of your past episodes should be available so I can look up info about the people interviewed, REAL comedians.
Marc is an amazing interviewer who is genuinely engaged with his guests. Such a pleasure to listen to
Dude, for the love of God, let your life guests speak! Ask a question, and shut...up! Don’t interrupt them and finish their answers. Don’t cut them off and interject a new question or comment before they’ve had time to finish their thought. You don’t have to finish every thought your guests have. You are such an annoying narcissist. Listen to yourself. Be honest. You have such great quests, but you ruin every...single...show by breaking in every chance you DON’T get to make the topic about yourself or steamroll all over your guests with uninteresting commentary, yeahs, rights, etc. Try it. Just ask a question and count at least to 60 before you saying anything. I’m listening now, and this is so, so aggravating.
Nobody beats Maron.
The best guests come on this show for a reason Marc Maron is all time great interviewer he’s actually interested in the guests!
Jane Fonda would get six minutes or so on a talk show and we didn’t really get the chance to know her. You gave her so much more and now.. I love her! Thanks to the both of you.
Hi Marc, I’ve only been listening to podcasts for a year & a half but I never miss any of your episodes. Although I enjoy them all, my favorite interview is Jane Fonda. I absolutely love her & you did a fantastic job! Can’t wait for your interview with Lily Tomlin. 😀 I also enjoy your comedy specials on Netflix. From a faithful listener, Cheryl in Arizona.
This podcast has some amazing episodes, unrivaled. Marc’s relatable, everyman persona makes the show real.
Hi Marc, I’ve been listening to you for a couple years now and following your standup career for even longer. Watching a person grow and evolve in the ways you have is incredibly inspiring. You and I are kindred spirits; I have several mental illnesses involving clinical depression so I can relate to your rock bottoms in a very personal way. Thank you for continuing this journey you have put all your energy into. I have had 4 attempts of suicide in my younger years; seeing you bounce back from similar situations, maybe for different reasons, has inspired me on so many levels. Thank you for all you’ve done, you are a role model to millions. -Judge Trudy
One of the best shows and podcasts. Great conversations with a little bit of a twist of sarcastic sense of humor! Love it! Thank you Marc and your guests!
I have been listening for almost 5 years and I love this show! Marc is such a great conversationalist. The time he spends talking to guests is smart, funny and empathetic. He is so engaging and you feel like you know him personally, especially after his opening monologues. This show has taught me so many things and I love how open and honest Marc is with his listeners. 5 stars!
Weird having a comma in the episode numbers now. Probably will get used to it
Love you Marc. I have been a listener for a little over a year and you have opened my eyes to a whole new world. Watched your stand up and your show on Netflix after. I one-hundred-percent back you on anything now.
Marc, Thank you. I look forward to your new shows. I first saw you in the nineties, in Boston. I appreciate your insight, and slants. Will continue to support and listen.
I don’t always know the guests, or think I’m going to like them, but the casual way Marc pulls info out of folks is comfortable and cathartic.
With Marc, I’d be lost. This podcast is pure therapy.
I don’t always enjoy the guests but I always enjoy you and respect the hustle. That’s a lot of shows you pump out.
It takes a minute to get into his rambling intros but once you're used to those, you'll never miss an ep.
Maron is the most sincere interviewer i’ve ever heard. Even if i’m not interested in the subject i look forward to hearing Marc’s take on things. I love his stories about his cats too. A real Mensch!
I miss when the show was interesting and controversial and not just a stop on a celebrity publicity tour.
Thanks, Marc— for your show and for your recent episode with Phoebe Robinson. Not only do I think you are both talented, multiple-threat performers but you share having uniquely great laughs. Phoebe’s is sheer joy and makes me break into a smile whenever I hear it. Your chuckle is more sly and love it too. Keep on doing what you do, both of you!! A fan named Donna
Thank you Mark and team. You are trailblazers; I’ve really enjoyed listening this past couple of years. I have a lot to catch up on. Keep on keeping on!
Absolutely the podcast of record.
Not many people can talk to folks and get the honest conversations Marc does. His experiences and look on life just seem to create a safe space for people to be themselves.
Episode 1000 was really great! Keep on keeping on!
You will love this podcast if you’re a Richard Lewis fan. Sort of Richard Lewis lite. The first time I saw him I thought he was the dude who played Bernie in Weekend at Bernie’s. But it’s not him. That guy was funnier and didn’t resent his parents. Seriously, this guy’s whole schtick is how he’s still sobbing into his pillow about mean ole mommy and daddy. But he does have talent!! This guy can get his guests to dampen their own hankies about their own parents. If you have an EQ above 10, avoid this show.
You have something for everyone! I really like you because you’re a cat guy and the fact that you have an artist girlfriend. Believe it or not that really says something about a person.
Vulnerable, caring and always growing! This podcast makes me feel good and hopeful🤘❤️🤘
Hands down the best podcast out there. Funny, sad, heart wrenching, and authentic. Marc has for years now shared his life and struggles with the listener. He nimbly draws out the inner experiences of the famous and infamous and connects their lives to the rest of the world in an attempt to show that we are all humans.
His opening comments are stale and self-absorbed, and not interesting. Today’s conversation was almost identical to one from the 86 year old gentleman who stood behind me for an hour at a funeral visitation. Kept talking, and repeating himself, about a topic no one was interested in, himself. Easy to give a lonely guy at a funeral patience and understanding. As entertainment? Hard pass.
It is now Feb2018. Have listened to Marc and his podcast for a little over three years now. He has a great natural conversational style to him. The best part of his interviews are when he is able to dive deep into the subject’s past. It helps us to truly understand the actions, styles and behaviors of the person (while at the same time, Marc is open about his previous travels). He tends to fall in line with “our country is over” now that Trump is POTUS. Something that is a common and annoying from a lot of the podcasts these days. When Marc rabbit trails this way, I just focus on my project at hand and hope that it does not consume too much of the interview or monologue. Over the past couple of years, the podcast has obviously generated large listening numbers. The guests have become more aligned with their tv shows’, albums’, books’, etc. releases. It has become more commercialized and like the late night talk shows that this podcast was a welcome relief from. Overall, Marc tends to do a great job of chit-chatting with the guest and not making it obvious that some of the guests are there only because the booking company was able to get a bowl of M&Ms on the table with all the blue ones removed.
Hands down, simply my favorite podcast. I was recommended this podcast from a friend in 2015 and was previously unfamiliar with Marc’s comedy, now I love both. Marc is a surprisingly honest, personable, and open interviewer who uses his own life experiences (anger, addiction, self-esteem, divorce) to relate to guests and listeners. The interviews often help me view social issues from a different perspective and make me more reflective on my personal life.
I just started listening to Marc’s podcast and I really enjoy his “rambles” or tangents. It feels like how my train of thoughts are lol. Also, I love how he talks about himself in a lot of ways because I talk about myself in that way as well, except Marc is wayyyy funnier about it. I love his interviewing style, even though a lot of his guests tend to be a little shy, he still gets them going and talking away. I love his interview style and the flow and pacing of his questions. It’s fun, funny, sweet, and an easy listen— like a good convo with a friend. So glad I finally jumped on this wagon.
Oy Vey Goyim. Read the Talmud.
Wanted one episode in particular but you gotta pay for all the episodes...
The first dozen episodes I listened to were awesome and insightful. Now I feel like every single episode is about the anxiety marc has in common with his guest. Cheers to eradicating the stigma and being open about mental illness but can we talk about something else as well?
I look forward to the guests and level of detail that Marc goes into with their background. However his lack of tolerance for the current administration puts a cloud over what would be a 6 out of 5 program.
Marc Maron is a guy who says he doesn’t have the answers, but peddles cookie cutter political opinions with zero nuance as if what he thinks is self evident. If you’re going to get all heady and abstract maybe know anything about the topic you’re talking about .
If you loved Howard Stern’s in-depth interview style but grew tired of his increasing conservatism and bitterness, you’ll love this podcast. Marc is funny, intelligent, thoughtful, open-minded, neurotic, casual, and empathetic. Even if Stern is your irreplacable King of Interview, you will likely peg Marc as the heir apparent (ironic given Stern’s dismissal of podcasts and his hypersensitivity to beating others in ratings). However, Marc doesn’t interview the same people that Stern does. Although you will hear him speak with huge celebrities, like President Obama, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Douglas, and Paul McCartney, you’ll discover so many new artists, it’ll expand your horizons. While he mainly brings comedians and musicians on the show, there is a liberal sprinkling of actors, writers, producers, painters, journalists, chefs, and the list goes on. Moreover, Marc’s empathetic, friendly, and casual style often relaxes guests enough to where actual real moments shine through. My only complaint is that a limited number of older episodes are available on iTunes. Any episodes older than a few months can only be accessed via another service, which would be worth the subscription given there are over 900 episodes. So, try it! My advice: Once you’re hooked, listen to the older episodes first and work your way up, that way you catch them before they’re moved off the “available episodes” list.
Love the show - always checking in to see who’s on. But you know what REALLY makes Marc the Podfather (in addition to being a Founding Podder)? When he goes on other ppl’s shows (Conan’s, Dax’s, etc.) - the public tunes in .
Avid listener for about two years and have gone back to the archives and listened to most of the older shows. This podcast is the best. Defintely has a nice structure although it may not seem like it at first. Nice mix of well known and lesser known guests. Highly recommended.
Occasionally has good guests. Sometimes accidentally conducts a decent interview. Always drones on for 20 minutes about l mundane nonsense.
It’s just boring, an hour of talk show questions and meat and potatoes asking whoever is the guest about their life. As a fan of Joe Rogans podcast, it’s easy to understand why Marin gets such A list guests and its because his show is a talk show extended an hour longer and called a podcast. Jre is much better in that there’s no procedure and no structure or format, which I imagine would be intimidating to celebrities whose careers depended on public image. Elon musk took a huge blow despite it being a fascinating podcast, however awkward again due to the lack of talk show type questions.
Marc is a comedic icon and a brilliant interviewer. I could listen to him all day. He is relatable.
The best interviewer in the business, and it’s a talented and crowded field..stick with Marc and you’ll get the important bits from interesting folk.
You will not find a better interviewer, well maybe Terry Gross.
It’s 95% Democratic Party how bout we add some republicans...Tim Allen
Marc’s podcast makes my week bearable. Just saying.
Late coming to the show and I’m kinda sure I haven’t missed much. I listened to a few shows trying really hard to get into this and a few things floated to the surface. The first being where is the humor? The second being the lack of chemistry. It’s almost glaringly obvious that Marc is not really tuned in but interjecting an almost robotic “yeah, yeah, right” until he can find a pause to ask an unrelated question like he’s following some prepared check list of questions. The interviews feel largely forced although peppered with some flashes of genuine conversation yet sadly those are the moments that Marc is talking about himself. After almost ten years, Marc, it seems still hasn’t found his stride. I give it three stars because hey, who am I to say really? That was my perception, and I could be wrong. I just wasn’t engaged by this.
Marc can put anyone at ease and land an excellent interview. This podcast has been a lifesaver to me. Thank you Marc you are appreciated and you bring such joy to so many of us.
Marc has to move on with his pitch. I’m just like you. Yeah. Not. I just get tired of the self centered talk. I’ve listened to Marc since he started. Time to move on.
The advantage of long form interviews, is that it gives a chance for the participants (along with the listener) to think, breathe and process the experience. The interviews are not rushed and they don’t follow a set structure. This almost always results in naturally flowing, compelling, and often moving exchanges. Maron is not a generic interviewer throwing softballs at the latest actor trying to promote a movie. He brings his own life experiences to these conversations, and this is what makes it feel like a real conversation - as opposed to what you see on other most other interview shows. This is the arguably the best interview show of the modern age. My only wish is that he would interview more musicians, and fewer Hollywood stars. Maybe also throw in a non-entertainment guest occasionally (business, govt, etc)?
Neurotic humor from a progressive genius
Suggest cutting all the meaningless yapping upfront and get to the interview.
If you can fast forward the mock-self-loathing/not-well-hidden narcissism of the first fifteen minutes (and a several good bits peppered throughout the interviews), the interviews themselves are a nice change of pace from other, more surface-oriented interviewers’ styles. The thing that makes me turn it off midway more than anything else is his complete and unabashed condescension to the CRAFT and WORK of acting. He’ll go on and on (and on) about his disregard or hostility toward amateurs who think they’re stand ups just bc they think they’re funny or bc they’ve done some open mics, but then he’ll also repeatedly and insultingly ask guests who are actors something along the lines of “But with acting you basically just have it or you don’t, right?” And this guy gets to do scene work with two of our greatest artists (deniro and Phoenix) and in a spandex movie that he also mercilessly mocks. Where is the Justice? Acting is an art form and a craft and has been around for centuries. A lot of people (many of whom you’ve kissed up to on your show) take it very seriously, dude. Also, and I say this as a tenured and published professor of cinema studies at a research one institution, having a minor or even major in cinema theory does not make you an expert! It’s like having a psyche major and declaring yourself a psychiatrist. Try a bit less performative self-loathing and a bit more legit humility, man. But keep in taking about recovery. More people need to destigmatize the disease and it’s treatments. Good on you for that.
Marc Maron gets the best guests and I actually enjoy his political ramblings and such when he’s flying solo. Problem is he’s a TERRIBLE interviewer. He can’t let anyone speak for five seconds without interjecting with “yeah...mmm hmm...sure...right.” I want to scream “Will you just let the person talk?”
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. However…yes…however….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 life’s 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 you💋!
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 won’t be disappointed. Go ahead download a couple
Hey Marc you’re awesome! I love everything you do! Keep up the good work!
I’ve 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. It’s 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.
I’ve been a listener since his interview with President Obama and I look forward to the next ones each week. I’ve 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 Maron’s 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 Marc’s podcast, but why does he interview one woman for every four dudes? I would love to hear more women interviewed.
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 what’s 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 don’t 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 you’ll 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 it’s 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!
I’ve come to the Maron game so late. I’ve 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.
I’m not into the self indulgent ranting, the chicken little political hysteria, or the preponderance of preening narcissists Mark often has on. But occasionally he’ll have someone good on with an interesting story. I’d rather have fewer episodes than a regular flow of dullards. It’s really too bad that he hasn’t 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, Don’t be a bump on the log. Don’t let the bump sit
Found him on GLOW and have “stalked” 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 you’re in the room listening to the conversation. Keep up the good job 🙌🏼
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 won’t be over The host’s head. Plus, if you pay attention, there are so many great suggestions for music, movies, art, theatre, etc. that I wouldn’t have otherwise been aware of. I’m a mainliner. People who have taken my advice and listened quickly follow the same path.
Marc Maron is a genius. If you’re not listening to this podcast, you’re an idiot. 😛
If your okay with that background fore play of super democratic view then it’s great. Mainly looking past that it’s 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! 🙌🏻
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 doesn’t 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 I’ve 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 ❤️
My favorite podcast. Apple never queues it up despite my consistent listening habit. Maybe if it was entitled AAWTF?
I currently have a crush on Marc Maron. I’ve been a listener for several years. He’s really a good conversationalist. And he’s always learning and growing. ❤️
Thanks for wasting 30 min of my time. My ear drums need to be sanitized
The eyeball convo was classic. Lol.
Always interesting with frequent surprises and insights. He goes places others don’t. But with style and helpful comment.
Chris has crafted together a podcast that is not only upbeat, informative, uplifting and funny but manages to somehow also strike a chord of sincerity and authenticity that I’ve not heard in any other show. This podcast is a staple among podcasts. An absolute must!
Hi Marc—this is NOT an insult. I love you, your interview style, your guests, etc. Lately, I’ve had a horrible time falling asleep due to midlife crisis b.s. so every midnight, I get into bed, turn on your podcast and concentrate really hard on it because I don’t want to miss a word. Magically, 20 minutes in, I fall fast asleep. It’s been a godsend for me. Please know I then go back to your podcast the next day and listen to it while fully awake and aware. It’s like the night before was just a preview of coming attractions for me. I know this is an unusual way to listen to you, but you’re allowing me to get a good night’s rest AND you’re fully entertaining me the next day. I’ve even had a couple of dreams about you, undoubtedly because yours is the last voice I hear before I sink into the deep sleep. Somehow I’m always your assistant and I help you get organized and you’re very grateful — not sure what THAT’S about as I haven’t been anyone’s assistant in 25 years, but I still like hanging with you at your house (in my dreams). Anyway, you’re great in bed, Marc— I sincerely thank you! 🤣 Keep up the good work.
I really enjoy your Pod casts. You have a real talent for interviewing. You have a genuine curiosity about the people you talk with & so bring out the real them. You dig deep and we find out fascinating things about people we think we know. My three favorite shows so far were: of course Obama, Drew Carey, & recently Mila Kunis. Obama it was interesting to know about his teen years in LA. Drew Carey’s dark suicidal period. I always thought of him as a happy go lucky shallow guy. Wow! He echoed things I went through emotionally. It was a moment of empathy. Lastly, Mila Kunis. I knew nothing about her. Just 70’s show. So she was a piece of fluff with no intelligence. Wow your interview proved me wrong. She is an immigrant. My ears perked up. I came to this country at the age of 7 As a Hungarian immigrant. My parents wanted a life of freedom from communism for my brother & me. As her parents they immersed themselves in the American culture Stopped speaking Hungarian so my brother & I would have no accent. My fathers degree didn’t transfer either. He had to take other jobs. My Mother could not get a job as a bank teller because she had a geeen card & wasn’t yet a citizen! She was a meat cutter at one point! Although I didn’t become a celebrity like Mila, we had similar childhood experiences. My parents were loving & devoted to making a better life for my brother & me if not for thenselves. P.S. my mom was always cooking too! Stuffed peppers are not just Russian. Hers were the best. HaHa! Keep up the good work! Patricia
Marc is able to solicit the most interesting and unique stories from his guests with his laid back and open approach. However, I almost enjoy his reflections during the intros and outros as much as anything! I find myself laughing out loud and being thoughtfully introspective all in the same episode.
I love Marc Maron. I've enjoyed him as a comic for years. These conversations draw you in and are always worth a listen. Marc's candor, curiosity and humor frame every interview in an insightful light. Looking foirward to more for years to come. Great show.
I love love love this podcast. It’s very insightful and entertaining. I appreciate his honest interest in his guest appearances. The Ray Liotta interview is my new favorite! ❤️
Listening to Paul Rudd harmonizing with the leaf blower 👍👍👍.
Love the guests and the conversations. Marc is awesome too!
The Peter Fonda podcast led to my 70 year-old Mom now wanting to listen to podcasts. It was like a college course on the 60s. That Billy Bob Thornton and Anthony Bourdain are some of the best interviews I have ever heard.
Marc Maron is the best interviewer working today. That’s all you need to know before diving into this pod.
great insight. knows how to get guests to open up and be comfortable talking about anything and everything
Mark seems to really empathize and care about others which is why his interviews are so great!
Marc does such a great job making everyone feel human and somehow connected to a wide variety of celebrities! They share stories you can relate to, and make you laugh too! Such a great podcast.
I love that Marc is able to be himself and in doing so, he creates space for his guests to do the same. This is one of my favorite podcasts.
This guy is worthless. a pathetic, overly opinionated child.
Love your family phone calls—priceless!
Marc Maron is such a great and unique interviewer. I love how it’s so organic. Funny moments to be had as well. Bravo! New subscriber here! 🤘🏽🤘🏽🤘🏽🤘🏽🤘🏽
This is a great podcast one of my favorites
For someone that says he’s not political or at least not political anymore. Maron pushes his political views almost every step of the way. He started his latest show off by saying that the United States is now torturing children. Referring to children and parents being detained and kept separate after crossing the border illegally. But putting it all on our current president. From what I recall, the same thing was happening under the last presidential regime. Besides the point, we are here to listen to you talk to Billy Bob Thornton. In other broadcasts, a guest would be in the middle of telling a story and Maron would pop in with something political about the current state of things, completely throwing the guest off guard. I love the guests that appear on the show and I like the way that Marc talks to them. The interaction is usually really good. In fact I listened for many years and subscribed to the premium list of podcasts. But I don’t tune in for politics and that’s exactly what it’s become. It’s a really tough listen now and I think a lot of people are catching up with the type of podcast this used to be. If that’s what it is now, then fine. I’ll go listen to someone else.
So pot is harmless except in podcasts like this where the host Marc Moron asks 3 questions before the guest has answered the first question or in some cases hasn't answered anything. How is this podcast consistently one of the highest rated? If you like lots of questions with half or no answers then this is the podcast for you.
Thanks Marc, you are filling a gap in the universe. I’ve been listening a while, but especially appreciate your latest show with Robin Williams and Anthony Bourdain. To hear the words of these icons in a setting that is comfortable and honest is a real boost. Your own humility is a real draw as well.. thanks so much!
Engaging, intelligent and entertaining. Marc’s sense of humor and style is wonderful.
Love Marc and his podcast. He does very interesting interviews but I love his pre interview banter, his honesty and the insights into his life. Best podcast...5 stars!!
I can’t get enough. I’ve been listening for more than a year and I haven’t found a podcast that matches. Marc “authenticity” allows him to be comfortable with anyone he interviews, and vice versa. You can tell that all guests leave comfortable and surprised that they revealed their own authentic human struggles. Thanks Marc
I have listened to a lot of podcasts and found Marc’s a couple of years ago. I used to skip the episodes of guests I hadn’t heard of or wasn’t really a fan of but missed Marc’s monologue at the top. I began to listen to them all and realized that even people I didn’t think I cared about were really fascinating and I think that is all due Marc’s uniques interview style. He goes way back to where they were born and what their parents did and asks things and LEARNS things no one else does. It’s not all about the latest movie or album but about them a person. And he picks up on the smallest things in which to dig deeper. He is so sincere and correlates back to his life at times but not in a way that monopolizes the interview. My only complaint? I wish episodes were longer!!! Thanks, Marc, for making my runs better and making me think and laugh out loud!!
For years, Marc has been my threrapist, keeping me sane and level-headed. I’m always informed, entertained, and reassured by spending time with him.
