    Episode 1406 - Dave Franco

    Episode 1406 - Dave Franco

    Dave Franco is a successful actor but that doesn’t mean he was full of confidence when he began directing his first feature. Dave tells Marc how he overcame the fear of the unknown once he stepped on set to call action for the first time. They also talk about how the timing of the pandemic worked out for the release of that film, The Rental, and how his latest film, Somebody I Used to Know, started as a script he wrote with his wife, Alison Brie, during quarantine.

    Episode 1404 - Brendan Fraser

    Episode 1404 - Brendan Fraser

    Brendan Fraser is receiving awards and accolades for his performance in The Whale but his reasons for taking on the role go much deeper than wanting to earn well-deserved praise. Brendan and Marc talk about the many layers of pain, trauma and redemption that went into creating the performance, much of which was informed by experiences throughout Brendan’s own life. They also compare notes on their shared love of Canada. 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 1403 - Sarah Polley

    Episode 1403 - Sarah Polley

    Sarah Polley has a lot to say about memory, narratives and the stories we tell. That’s because she believes they’re all fluid, which creates a sort of moving target for a writer and director of films, as she is. Sarah and Marc talk about how this is represented in Sarah’s movies like Away from Her and her latest, Women Talking, and why she made a documentary about a particularly fraught and deceptive narrative from her own family.

    Episode 1402 - Octavia Spencer

    Episode 1402 - Octavia Spencer

    Octavia Spencer’s career started behind the scenes, as she worked in casting departments on film sets. Director Joel Schumacher said she should read for the role of Sandra Bullock’s nurse in A Time To Kill and set her on a path that would eventually culminate fifteen years later with an Academy Award. Octavia and Marc talk about how she’s had to resist typecasting, how she conquered stage fright, and how her childhood love of police procedurals is now her life, as she kicks off the third season of the crime drama Truth Be Told.

    Episode 1401 - Todd Field

    Episode 1401 - Todd Field

    Todd Field toyed with many pursuits before he ever directed a film. First there was close-up magic. Then he went to school on a music scholarship. He also hoped to become a baseball player, working as a batboy for a minor league team. He helped invent Big League Chew. Then he became an actor and worked with Stanley Kubrick and Tom Cruise, who both offered Todd support as he made his first movie. Todd and Marc talk about the decisions that led him to each of his three films: In the Bedroom, Little Children, and Tár.

Excellent

LOVED the Tom Jones interview! My mom had the biggest crush on him and happy to hear he is doing so well at 80 years young! His memory was better than some of Marc’s 40 year old guests! What a legend & great interview (as always) Marc!

Update: the Brendan Frazier interview was heartbreakingly beautiful. What a lovely man and interviewed by the best! Thank you Marc!

I really liked BF ep

I really liked the interview with Brendan Fraser. I liked how raw and vulnerable it got.

I would love to hear you have Bari Alyse Rudin on your show-funny, relatable, and can get raw and vulnerable about grief, loss, suicide, mental health issues. The 2 of you would be amazing to hear together.

Best podcast out there

Marc is funny and articulate and holds interesting conversations with his guests. I learn about life and about people I was previously unfamiliar with and find it comforting and inspiring. Also has excellent sound quality. Highly recommended. Always excellent!
