It Wasn’t Hilarious
I say again, it wasn’t hilarious.
I was on the fence for 1,193 episodes because I find Marc’s political opinions to be excrement sheltered and undercooked and so obviously a function of his privilege. His myriad banal neuroses also become repetitive and grating but this episode with Andy Zaltzam tipped me over. It was warm, lovely, thoughtful and funny. Diamond in the rough x
After discovering this podcast in 2019, it got me through some difficult times. I now listen to every episode. Feels like therapy sometimes but also good for entertaining stories and book and music recommendations. And cat talk! Marc is the best - I always listen from start to finish.
