    Episode 1546 - Ed O'Neill

    Ed O’Neill’s his early days working in an Ohio steel mill and contemplating a potential career hustling for mobsters didn’t seem like a path to Hollywood. Nor did his days playing football and coming up short during NFL tryouts. But his working class Irish background wound up making Ed the perfect portrayer of Al Bundy, a performance partially based on his own uncle. Ed talks with Marc about everything that led up to Married… with Children and Modern Family, and why he was determined to say no to the new FX on Hulu limited series Clipped, right up until he said yes.

    Episode 1543 - Tony Goldwyn

    Despite a family name that goes back to the dawn of Hollywood, Tony Goldwyn’s father did not want him to get into the family business.

They also talk about his new movie Ezra and how both Bill Burr and Robert DeNiro helped in the evolution of the film.

Insightful, informative, therapeutic!

Hands down the best podcast ever. This is why podcasts were invented, and if I could listen to only one for the rest of my life it would be this. Marc’s informal, easy-going ‘interview’ technique is fantastic. I’m envious of his ability to get people to open up about the deepest of issues, and most of all I empathise with Marc’s personality and issues so much. Identifying with him and some of his guests’ mental issues have helped me through some really dark times in my life. Marc, you’re my lifeline! Please never stop being you!
