    Episode 1389 - Clea DuVall

    It’s the holidays, which means Clea DuVall’s movie the Happiest Season is once again part of a new tradition for people everywhere. That’s still taking time to sink in for Clea because it’s a film she wrote and directed that deals with a personal struggle she didn’t even make public until a few years ago. Clea talks with Marc about how she dealt with coming out in her personal life but staying closeted in her professional life. They also talk about her new series High School, based on the memoir of Tegan and Sara.

    Episode 1385 - Robert Siegel

    Writer-director Robert Siegel wanted to explore a career in either comedy or journalism. It turns out he got to do both as Editor-in-Chief of The Onion. But while The Onion was mostly comedy tinged with tragedy, Robert tells Marc how he wanted to flip that dynamic once he started writing screenplays. They talk about how the stories he told in The Wrestler, Big Fan, The Founder, Pam and Tommy, and now Welcome to Chippendales all begin with a very specific type of great American tragic hero.

    Episode 1384 - Bruce Wagner

    Episode 1384 - Bruce Wagner

    When Marc reads the works of author and screenwriter Bruce Wagner, he starts to question reality. Bruce’s depictions of Hollywood personalities and show business darkness cut close to the bone and leave Marc trying to make sense of the life he chose. Bruce and Marc talk about where it all comes from, starting with his upbringing in the heart of Old Hollywood. Bruce also explains why being a victim of identity theft helped him write his new novel, ROAR, and why he decided to release his previous book, The Marvel Universe, into the public domain.

Excellent podcast!

All are great including recent wonderful talk with Rob Delaney.

There’s a reason Maron’s the best

and still gets better. Not sure how this is possible but it’s a fact. He’s mellowed a bit, which helps. Has more women guests. Loves his cats. Reminds the Covid deniers out there that THE PANDEMIC IS NOT, IN FACT, OVER. (Thank you ❤️). And he’s good for the (fellow cultural) Jews like myself.

But still….the next time you’re in Amsterdam, go see the Anne Frank House, OK? xo

Big a long time fan of the podcast, but Marc needs to listen sometimes

As mentioned I’ve been a long time fan of the podcast and Marc in general, but he just speaks over guests entirely too much these days. While I fully understand that’s been part of Marc’s style, he just interrupts and continues to pursue his own idea/joke/rant far too long and often these last few years. Honestly it’s tiring and difficult to listen to. It’s made me listen far less even when there’s a good guest.
