Last weekend, Hubbo and I went to hear stand-up comedian Marc Maron.
Friends of MDK Katie and Josh were with us. Katie is a regular listener of Maron’s beloved WTF Podcast, which is a mainstay for many who like their podcasts kind of sweary. (Consider yourself warned.) Katie explained that Maron is able to get his guests to share their most personal stories because Maron himself is pretty unvarnished about his own life.
I can testify, having had a big dose of him last weekend, that the varnish is completely missing from Marc Maron. He was hilarious, profane, and raw. Women: do not date this man. Men: do not emulate this man. Cats: he loves his cats, so you’re good.
The stories flow immediately from John Prine, a brilliant hour to spend.
