The Turnaround with Jesse Thorn

Jun 29, 2017

Today's Turnaround guest is Marc Maron, standup comic, actor, and host of one of the biggest podcasts ever: <i>WTF with Marc Maron</i>. Maron has a big personality, and it shows in his interviews. He's not rattling off a list of questions, but instead he's trying to have a conversation that's intimate and real. It doesn't always go smoothly, but it usually reveals a lot about the guest, even if they aren't into it. Marc talks with Jesse about what it's like recording his very popular show in his garage, his strategy for getting people to loosen up, and the difference between his standup and podcast personas. They also discuss two very different people who loom large in their consciousness: Terry Gross and Chris Hardwick.
