    Episode 1385 - Robert Siegel

    Writer-director Robert Siegel wanted to explore a career in either comedy or journalism. It turns out he got to do both as Editor-in-Chief of The Onion. But while The Onion was mostly comedy tinged with tragedy, Robert tells Marc how he wanted to flip that dynamic once he started writing screenplays. They talk about how the stories he told in The Wrestler, Big Fan, The Founder, Pam and Tommy, and now Welcome to Chippendales all begin with a very specific type of great American tragic hero.

    Episode 1384 - Bruce Wagner

    Episode 1384 - Bruce Wagner

    When Marc reads the works of author and screenwriter Bruce Wagner, he starts to question reality. Bruce’s depictions of Hollywood personalities and show business darkness cut close to the bone and leave Marc trying to make sense of the life he chose. Bruce and Marc talk about where it all comes from, starting with his upbringing in the heart of Old Hollywood. Bruce also explains why being a victim of identity theft helped him write his new novel, ROAR, and why he decided to release his previous book, The Marvel Universe, into the public domain.

Marc’s great as an inter player

He listens and has insightful thoughts and I know he’s truly interested in his guest. That’s why I listen to him my whole pregnancy.

Why delete past interviews?

I scroll back looking for certain ones and they always seem to be missing.. why for?

Good podcast

The only reason I’m not giving this 5 (I love Marc’s interviewing style a lot) is case I’ve only heard of 10-20% of his guests🤷🏻‍♂️
