    Episode 1472 - Aparna Nancherla

    Episode 1472 - Aparna Nancherla

    Aparna Nancherla says the self-fulfilling prophecy of imposter syndrome is convincing yourself you don’t belong and acting in a way to prove yourself right. It’s something she’s dealt with no matter what level of success she’s achieved in standup, writing and acting, and something she’s worked to overcome. Aparna and Marc talk about feeling like an outsider even while compiling a list of accomplishments, struggles with performance anxiety, and the persistent question, “What’s the point of anything?” Sign up here for WTF+ to get the full show archives and weekly bonus material! https://plus.acast.com/s/wtf-with-marc-maron-podcast.

    Episode 1471 - Gary Gulman

    Episode 1471 - Gary Gulman

    When Gary Gulman was on WTF in 2013, he and Marc talked about Gary’s mental health in relation to his comedy. Since that time, Gary has dealt with severe bouts of depression and integrated it into his act, specifically in his 2019 HBO special The Great Depresh. Now, with Gary putting a lot of his thoughts on the pages of his first book, he and Marc revisit the ideas they previously had about comedy and how those perceptions changed as they’ve realized comedy can be a tool to help people feel less alone.

    Episode 1469 - Naomi Klein

    Episode 1469 - Naomi Klein

    Naomi Klein was faced with a rather common problem. She was consistently mistaken for someone else. But because Naomi is one of our most perceptive and astute social critics, she was able to to turn that case of mistaken identity into an examination of the many public threats pervading society and how they’re connected by the deliberate blurring of reality and identity. Naomi and Marc talk about all the research and conclusions of her new book, Doppelgänger: A Trip Into The Mirror World.

    Episode 1468 - Bernie Taupin

    Episode 1468 - Bernie Taupin

    Bernie Taupin is a songwriter responsible for many of the most beloved songs ever recorded. But he actually thinks of himself as a cinematographer, taking what he sees in life and turning those mental snapshots into fantastical stories. Bernie and Marc talk about the origins of his more than 50-years-long partnership with Elton John, his friendship with Alice Cooper, the influence of The Band, and the timelessness of his songs.

Maria Bamford and Naomi Klein

Wonderful interviews with these two incredible humans who have broken ground in their two prospective fields! Courageous and interesting and important describes both of them. The world would be a better place if everyone read and listened to their work.

desperately single ,

shut up Marc, for the love of god

I tuned in to listen to Gary Gilman, you know the guest, talk about his struggles and all I heard was Marc talk about himself.. he is truly insufferably narcissistic.

Best pod cast

I saw Marc Maron in San Antonio in 2002/2003 time frame and have watched him grow over the last 20 years. His podcast is amazing and his way with guests is incredible
