    Episode 1530 - Malcolm McDowell

    Episode 1530 - Malcolm McDowell

    When Malcolm McDowell left behind Liverpool to pursue acting in London, he didn’t imagine it would be the start of 60 years as a performer. Malcolm talks with Marc about his extraordinary career, including his work with Stanley Kubrick on A Clockwork Orange, the pornographic fate of Caligula, and stories about Lawrence Olivier, Alan Bates, Peter Sellers, Robert Altman, Mick Jagger and more. Malcolm also explains why he fell hard for Newfoundland while making the series Son of a Critch.

    Episode 1529 - Alex Edelman

    Episode 1529 - Alex Edelman

    Alex Edelman is the kind of comic who makes Marc immediately anxious. But it’s quickly apparent that Marc is reacting to the fact that he sees so much of himself in Alex. They’re both still dealing with complex feelings about their Jewish identities. They both paid their comedy dues doing road gigs in Boston. They both experiment with long-form storytelling, wondering if they’re doing one-man shows or standup, or if there’s a difference. They hash all this out as they discuss Alex’s new HBO special, Just For Us.

    Episode 1528 - Carol Burnett

    Carol Burnett turns 91 later this month and is still going strong with a featured role in the new series Palm Royale. But Carol is quick to remind Marc that the great success she achieved happened in part due to the kindness of strangers. Carol and Marc talk about the mysterious benefactors who helped her get to New York where she found success on the stage, then on television, and then with her own variety show. They also talk about her friendship with Lucille Ball, collaborating with Julie Andrews, and the closeness of The Carol Burnett Show cast.

    Episode 1527 - Dina Hashem

    Episode 1527 - Dina Hashem

    Standup comedy transformed Dina Hashem’s life. So why is she at a point, right after releasing her acclaimed first special, where she cares less about standup than ever before? Dina talks with Marc about her isolated upbringing in New Jersey, her revelatory first time doing comedy, and why she has a hard time recognizing herself in her own special. Dina also talks about drumming, skateboarding, and writing for The Daily Show.

    Episode 1526 - Alejandro Escovedo

    Episode 1526 - Alejandro Escovedo

    Celebrated singer-songwriter and guitarist Alejandro Escovedo made one of Marc’s favorite albums, the 1992 solo record Gravity. But the raw, intimate poetry of that album came from a real place of grief and anguish in Alejandro’s life. They talk about what led up to that point, including his early bands The Nuns, Rank and File, and True Believers, and the rocky road afterward when Alejandro’s health took a turn for the worse. They also discuss his new album, Echo Dancing, and why he chose to reinterpret his own work.

    Episode 1525 - David Krumholtz

    Episode 1525 - David Krumholtz

    David Krumholtz lives and breathes Hollywood because, according to him, he has no other choice. The prolific character actor got what he considers a once in a lifetime break at age 13, so he needed to honor whatever fates gave him that opportunity by devoting himself entirely to acting. David talks with Marc about what he’s learned from co-stars like Judd Hirsch and Alan Arkin as well as directors like Christopher Nolan and the Coen Brothers, and he also reflects on his leading man status in the new film Lousy Carter.

Carol the great

Thanks for the thoughtful interview with Carol Burnett. She’s so interesting and you showed genuine interest.

DLC-overtime ,

If the world has to be on fire…

I honestly think I would have lost my mind over the last six years or so if it weren’t for this podcast. If we really are in the end times (and we probably are), at least there’s comfort in knowing that someone like Maron can offer a wickedly bleak perspective on it. I’m not sure we Canadians will be able to offer a fully safe haven if he has to pull the chute and follow through on his permanent residency application (depending on the future of our own toxic politics and extended wildfire seasons), but it’s nice he would think of us.

Random ways ,

Congrats on 1500

Marc, Amazing Épisodes al the way up ….but number 1500 as you shared and stated really captures the magic of your podcast and reflects your growth and humanity
