He only plugs people's stuff when he has them on and he started doing WTF a little after he appeared on KATG the last time.

Beisdes that, he's a self absorbed bastard. That's part of his charm. If Keith and Chemda ever contact him again he'll probably mention the show on WTF.

I like him too much to focus on a detail like that, but maybe it's just me.

I like him too, I just wanted to voice that complaint out loud finally.

Again, it bothered me once and I got lazy and never emailed him about it. So I shouldnt complain to much.

I usually can't stand Marc Maron because of how totally unpleasant and bitter/miserable a human being he is but he really shines when he directs that shitty attitude onto other people.

Maron vs. Cook

I thought the WTF pod with Dane Cook was amazing. I can say that the nicotine cravings must have really been getting to him because he really had a sinister edge in the middle of the interview. Marc really digs that knife under Dane's fingernails at one point.

I had Marc on my Music Life Radio podcast recently, he's a pretty decent closet guitar player. He just played his first live performance at Cobb's early this month and you could tell he was hooked. He is just getting ready to post a WTF about it (Bring the Rock) with Greg Behrendt.

Marc was a very cool person to talk t in persono, and didn't give off any bad vibes. He was really pleasant and engaging. Check out the Music Life Radio interview at Maron on Music - MLR Podcast 015 | Music Life Radio

He kept dragging his poor dead parents into it, the most egregious example being during the joke theft section which to paraphrase went something like this:

"You were accused of stealing jokes."

"My parents died of cancer, dude!"

Another great show.

hey junk great thread, haven't been able to get into the weekly WTF. i took you junkenstein advise and downloaded this show. holy fuck marc is so intense. the dane cook part was interestining, but holy shit the nicotine diary fucking ...............so real..... i live in ny, smokes are 9.56, a pack new $1.60 tax started 7/1. in 1995 the same pack was 1.90. good luck to marc, ny state should us the tax funding, to pay marc maron to tell the youth, that the hardest thing in life is to stop smoking ciggs after you have become so pyscologically attached. hopefully someday i'll fight the good fight and care in the same way. fuck throat cancer.

I showed my gf this episode, she never understood the Dane Cook backlash (coincidentally she also never saw one of his shitty movies).

The part that stood out to me was this (paraphrasing):

Dane: As soon as my Comedy central special blew up (he describes it as the one with him ripping a black tank top off) I knew that all other hard working touring comedians were going into morning radio shows and being asked: Why don't you do Dane Cook comedy?

Marc: They never asked me that.

I also love the way he name dropped Steve Martin out of thin air with no appropriate context.

Marc: People think your an arrogant asshole, why do you think that is?
Dane: I met Steve Martin for dinner.

I gotta say, Marc Maron could be one the best interviewers I have ever heard. I love how he cuts in with observational backwards criticism that goes right over the guests head but not the audience.
