    Episode 1516 - Lily Gladstone

    Episode 1516 - Lily Gladstone

    Lily Gladstone knows that people project all manner of emotions and intentions onto her when she gives a performance. Lily and Marc talk about why that happens, including the reaction to her Oscar-nominated performance in Killers of the Flower Moon. They also talk about the time Lily was thinking about giving up acting just as Kelly Reichardt cast her in Certain Women, why it was so important for her to play an incarcerated mother on Reservation Dogs, and why she believes every role she takes becomes an Indigenous role, regardless of the original intent.

    Episode 1514 - America Ferrera

    Episode 1514 - America Ferrera

    America Ferrera didn't expect that her performance in Barbie would lead to an Oscar nomination but few things in life have gone in a straight line for the daughter of working class immigrants from Honduras. America and Marc talk about how she encountered stereotypical typecasting even at a young age but saw that her work was making a tangible difference in how people saw themselves on the screen. They also talk about how America satisfied her desire for a career in international relations, her feelings about being part of cultural conversations dictated by others, and that Barbie monologue.

    Episode 1513 - Mark Ruffalo

    Episode 1513 - Mark Ruffalo

    Before Mark Ruffalo became the Hulk, he deeply understood what it felt like to be two people in the same skin. A high school wrestler and a member of the drama club, a surfer and a punk rocker, a person with a family history of bipolarity. Mark and Marc talk about how he used this duality in many of his roles, including his Oscar-nominated turn in Poor Things. They also talk about his recent testimony to Congress, his fear of doing SNL, and the terrifying health scare that turned his life upside down just as his career was taking off.

Fantastic interviews

Marc knows how to talk to people and it’s always an interesting conversation.
Thank you!

In Character. ,

The art of having a conversation.

Marc Maron is an excellent conversationalist. He has a very disarming approach that works with everyone (except with Gallagher and to a point with Ben Kingsley) and the interviews never feel forced. It’s one of my all time favourite podcasts.

‘BOOMER LIVES!’

Mike R Orso ,

He’s spoken to everyone

I came here to listen to Marc’s fascinating William Friedkin interview. I’ve been listening to his podcast for many years now and always return when I want to hear some enlightening conversation. Chances are your fave has sat with Marc in his garage for one of these unique chats. Other favourites include Robin Williams, Melanie Lynskey, and Josh Homme.
