It is likely that you’re already one of the many downloading the WTF podcast hosted by Marc Maron. I know I am. But just in case you aren’t or haven’t listened in a while, he has been talking to more musicians lately much to my joy. The episodes are always interesting but since I am much more of a music nerd than a comedy nerd the more musical guests are a bonus.
Maron has had onWayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips, James Mercer of The Shins and Mary Mack who categorizes herself as a “folk humorist” but is a quirky talented musician with great stories and fun songs.
Maron’s interviews are fresh and unique since he is not a tired rock writer stuck in the same question pattern. Maron brings out telling stories and intimate performances from the artists.
You can download or stream the podcasts for free from his site (the links above take you direct to that particular show page) or from iTunes.
