    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.

    Episode 1400 - Andrea Riseborough

    Episode 1400 - Andrea Riseborough

    Andrea Riseborough can't lie. She's terrible at it. But she believes that trait helps her as an actor because there's no hiding her emotions. Marc can attest to this, having acted opposite Andrea in To Leslie, but she's been at it since she was nine years old doing David Mamet plays with other kids. Marc and Andrea talk about her background in theater, how Mike Leigh gave her a charmed entry into film, and how she's personally confronting the current challenges of film creation and distribution.

    Episode 1399 - Katt Williams

    Episode 1399 - Katt Williams

    Katt Williams is a one-of-a-kind comic performer, so it’s only natural he should have a one-of-a-kind backstory. Katt tells Marc about his travels as a teenager, trying to make it on his own in Florida, then in Haiti, then around the country in all 50 states as a door to door salesman. Katt recalls the days he was opening for comedians like Jeff Foxworthy and Dan Whitney, before he became Larry the Cable Guy, and he talks about some of his surprising inspirations, from Jack London to Don Knotts.

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!

High?

My Spidey sense went off immediately when I heard you start talking at the beginning of the Courtney love pod. I’m a recovering addict; as soon as I heard your voice, there was some thing off with it, the same sort of cadence that is heard with heroin addicts and heroin addict knows it when they hear it. Maybe you were on an anti-depressant maybe an anti-anxiety? It was very noticeable…… and very unnerving to hear. I hope that I am just flat out wrong.
